Making a Murderer’s Brendan Dassey, nephew of Steven Avery, is preparing for his release, including planning his career.
Dassey wants to spend time with his family. He has also requested his mother to make him homemade chili or lasagne.
Speaking about his his nephew’s overturned conviction, Avery said he believes the truth is beginning to get uncovered. “I thought sooner or later [this day] would [come],” Avery told InTouch, as reported by Yahoo News. “The truth is coming out.”
Dassey’s conviction was overturned by federal Judge William E. Duffin. Dassey was convicted in 2007 and subsequently given a life imprisonment sentence for acting as his uncle’s accomplice in the murder of 25-year-old photographer Teresa Halbach. The judge said Dassey’s conviction was unlawful as the then 16-year-old was coerced into confession when he was interrogated by the police.
Earlier this year, during his sentence in Columbia Correctional, Wisconsin, Dassey obtained his GED. He plans to study further after his release and wants to focus on video game design. He also expressed interest in working in the field.
Travelling is also on Dassey’s mind, and he wants to eventually settle down and have three kids.
As previously reported by TMZ, Columbia Correctional facility imposes a strict rule against violence, nudity and foul language for television viewing; as a result, Dassey was not allowed to watch Wrestlemania. Now that his release is approaching, his family and friends are planning to take him to attend the event.
Making a Murderer creators recently announced new shows of the docu-series. However, the date of season 2 has not been made clear.
