[WHAT IS MYKE TYSON IQ SCORE?]
Brendan Ray Dassey (born October 19, 1989) is an American man from Manitowoc County, Wisconsin who was convicted of being party, at age 16, to first-degree murder, mutilation of a corpse, and second-degree sexual assault. He was sentenced to life in prison, with the earliest possibility of parole in 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 his uncle, Steven Avery, who were both convicted of murdering photographer Teresa Halbach on October 31, 2005.
Brendan Dassey IQ is 70 when he was 16 years old (now he is 29), putting him at a fourth-grade reading level, so between that and the lack of an adult or lawyer present Dassey was lured into giving a false confession, according to Duffin.
However, as Business Insider's Tanya Lewis points out, IQ tests don't "necessarily predict poor intra-personal intelligence — another term for self-awareness and introspection — the kind of intelligence you might expect to explain why Dassey was susceptible to coercion by the police."
This is also raises the question of how Dassey was capable of reading Kiss the Girls, and the details of his confession don't match up entirely with explicit violence in the novel. It may be possible that he was referring to the movie version, which aligns a little more closely to his confession.
