What 'Making a Murderer' Subject Brendan Dassey Looks Like After a Decade in Prison (PHOTO)


Brendan Dassey has grown into a young man in prison. He was just 17 when he was found guilty of first-degree intentional homicide, mutilating a corpse, and second-degree sexual assault in 2007. It won't come as a shock that he has changed quite a bit from the young, confused boy you see when watching Making a Murderer

Brendan is now 26 years old, and he will be eligible for parole in 2048. His cousin, who has been acting as sort of a go-between for Dassey and his supporters on Twitter, recently posted this photo of what he looks like now:

I can't imagine what it must be like to enter jail at age 17 and spend most of your growing-up years there. I cannot even begin to fathom being the mom of a vulnerable kid with an intellectual disability and how hard that must be on Dassey's mother, Barb Tadych. Barbara and her mother have a Paypal account in support of Brendan and Steven. 

 

I'm still not convinced Dassey is guilty, and I think his confession tapes show he was pretty much railroaded. Here's hoping his new attorney will be able to shed some light on exactly what happened in the tragic case of Teresa Halbach.
