Several key pieces of evidence: the cremains, license plates, RAV4 and 1996 blood vial

Below is a list of evidence found against Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey. It's a list of the evidence, who was the first to find it, and when it was found.

Some pieces of evidence are mentioned in more than one table, such as the burned remains, because it's difficult to determine who was first to found that piece of evidence.
