Questions following my viewing of Making A Murderer

I've already talked it over with my friends that have viewed the show, as well as my wife, so at this point I have a pretty clear idea of the general point of view of others regarding the show. I have some pretty huge questions though, because I don't know and I feel like it helps put some pieces together in this case. It was not the documentary's job to answer these questions, I understand, but they still weigh on me because in my completely unprofessional opinion, there are two innocent people serving life sentences.

My questions center around the victim, Teresa Halbach. I don't feel it's taboo or distasteful to ask questions about her life because the answers could reveal some truths that were either missed or dismissed in the original investigation.

Do we know who she was outside of the creepy-ass video we get glimpses of? The video is creepy even without the context of her fate. It was filmed, if memory serves, around two or three years prior to her murders. When I was 22, I don't remember worrying about my death or talking about my death like that. I also drank a lot so memories may be fuzzy. At any rate, that was a a rather dark thing to have committed to video tape in an age before people committed every waking thought to video. Begs the question: Did she have a livejournal?

I just feel like if there was more known about her, we could put more together about other suspects. Like I said, I think that Avery and Dassey are innocent, but that isn't based on anything other than the circumstantial evidence and the timeline of its discovery. Doesn't look good for the Manitowoc County Sheriff's Office. But if she had enemies, or if she was into drugs, there'd be more terrain to cover. Some things just happen and go unexplained and that's life. However, if anything can be ruled out, it should be.

I don't know. I need to know more.
