In Touch has exclusively obtained a letter Steven Avery’s lawyer, Kathleen Zellner, sent to his now ex fiancée Lynn Hartman in which she sends formal notice of termination of their engagement.
“Please let this letter act as formal notice that Mr. Avery terminated his engagement with you effective October 2,” reads a missive dated Oct. 3.
“As Mr. Avery expressed to you during your relationship with him, he deems his correspondence and communications with you to be confidential. This constitutes an oral agreement with him.”

Therefore, asking Lynn to "cease and desist" giving any interviews regarding her relationship with Steven. “Although we believe that you have already breached the oral contract, we will not take any legal action against you unless you continue to violate the terms of your agreement with him,” Zellner writes.
