Brendan Ray Dassey (born October 19, 1989) is an American man from Manitowoc County, Wisconsin who was convicted of being party to first-degree murder, mutilation of a corpse, and second-degree sexual assault at the age of 17, and sentenced to mandatory life in prison with a possibility of parole set for November 1, 2048. His videotaped interrogation and confession, which he recanted at trial, substantially contributed to his conviction. Parts were shown in the Netflix documentary series Making a Murderer (2015). The series examined the 2005-2007 investigation, prosecution and trials of Dassey and Steven Avery, his uncle, who were both convicted of murdering photographer Teresa Halbach on October 31, 2005.

Dassey's conviction was overturned by US Magistrate Judge William E. Duffin in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on August 12, 2016, on the basis that his confession was involuntary and unconstitutionally coerced. He was ordered to be released within 90 days unless the state decides to retry him. On November 14, 2016, Duffin ordered him released, though the state's Attorney General announced plans to file an immediate emergency appeal. On November 17, 2016, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit blocked Dassey's release pending resolution of the appeal.

The letter and envelope are both handwritten. The letter is signed, Brendan Dassey.
