This is Brendan Dassey. I am writing to let you know that me and my uncle Steven are innocent. The investigators tormented me until I said what they wanted me to say. They used me to get to my uncle because they knew that if I testified at his trial they would have found him innocent because I would have told the real truth about what happened that day. The investigators got into my head saying that if I confessed to the crime, they would let me go and when I did they locked me up.
They tricked me. The investigators lied through their teeth on the stand. I was afraid of them back then. If I would get a new trial the truth would come out because I am not afraid of them anymore. They ruined me and my families lives. I missed so much in my life already. It's been almost 10 years since I've been taken away from my family.
The prosecutors don't care what they do. They just want a conviction. They don't care if the person is innocent. As longs as they get someone to put them away even if it's the wrong people.
If my story would get out everybody in the world would know that Steven Avery and myself are two innocent people. But with me being inside this place they do not let me talk to anybody to get the truth out.
True and innocent,
