'Making a Murderer' attorneys honored

19 million people have viewed the Netflix documentary "Making a Murderer." Now and many have the same question: did he do it?

Jerry Buting and Dean Strang are the legal defense team made famous in the documentary. They are still making the case for their client Steven Avery. The attorneys were honored for their work at John Jay College with a Fierce Advocate Award.

The series lead many viewers to believe Avery, a Wisconsin man, didn't kill Teresa Halbach and may have been set-up by law enforcement.

It all comes as a new wrinkle in the case has come to light. A death certificate obtained by Uproxx shows Avery may have been charged before authorities had proof of the woman's death. It maybe not the bombshell needed for a new trial. The attorneys are seemingly split as to whether that will ever happen.

Strang and Buting are putting their newfound stardom conversation to use by launching a speaking series called Conversation on Justice, a candid conversation about criminal justice.

The two attorneys will take their tour across the country -- 26 cities -- from Boston to Florida.
