Manitowoc Man Believes a Secret Satanic Club Could be Behind the Steven Avery Case
Wisconsin resident Dave Begotka claims a secret, Satanic racketeering club may be involved in the case of Making a Murderer subject Steven Avery.
I’ve been researching the topic for a long time, but I’m not convinced that all-powerful secret societies are pulling the strings of world affairs, or that the elite one percent are engaged in human sacrifice and blood-splattered orgies for Satan. When it comes to altars, robes, and candle-lit rituals, however…I can’t resist a good story. Especially when it hits close to home, such as the latest claim in the bizarre case of Steven Avery.
Dave Begotka spent most of his life living in and around Manitowoc, the Wisconsin town at the center of the controversial Netflix series Making a Murderer. Recently, he has taken to Youtube to share his bit part in the Avery case, and reveal what may be the strangest facet yet of the ever-deepening mystery.
In his three-part video (embedded below) Begotka recounts the details of his involvement in the events that took place on the beach in 1985 – the assault which resulted in Avery’s wrongful conviction and 18 years in prison before DNA evidence exonerated him in 2003. From there, however, Begotka weaves the story into a series of encounters with a “secret club” he claims is comprised of local business owners and authorities. On numerous occasions, he says, he was invited to join the club. He steadfastly refused, despite their progressively threatening nature.
Begotka claims he was propositioned with Polaroids depicting sexual acts, and says the group is rumored to communicate with the devil in the basement of JFK Prep, a notoriously ominous seminary in the nearby town of St. Nazianz that has been sitting empty since it was closed in the early 1980s.
Not only was this group at odds with Avery, Begotka alleges, but he believes they may also be responsible for the mysterious death of the woman who ran the bar he owned.
Was Steven Avery framed by a secret and maniacal Satanic sex cult?
