We first saw Steven Avery's nephew, Brendan Dassey, as a 16-year-old in the 10-part true crime documentary series, Making a Murderer.

As you binge-watch the series, it feels like the events are taking place today, despite the trial ending ten years ago.

On November 15t, 2005, Avery was charged with the murder of Teresa Halbach – kidnapping, sexual assault, and false imprisonment were added later on.

As for his nephew Brendan Dassey, he was charged with mutilation of a corpse, sexual assault, and homicide several months later, on March 2, 2006.

Over the course of the last ten years, Brendan has grown up in person and he looks a lot different to the teenager we were first introduced to in the series.

His cousin, Carla Chase, uploaded a photo of Brendan and his mother Barbara to her Twitter account.

She recently revealed that Brendan was moved from Green Bay Correctional Institution to Columbia Correctional Institution as 'fears for his safety' grew.

Brendan's lawyer, Laura Nirdier, spoke to Forbes about how her client is handling prison: "Behind the four walls of a prison without, obviously, a Netflix subscription, it’s hard to understand how big Making a Murderer has gotten

"He’s understanding it. He is hopeful. He is grateful. He wants his fair shot. That’s all."
