Earn Your Master's Degree in Rape and Murder

Steven Avery is talking to the press now. Where do you even start with this?

Investigators coerced Steven Avery's nephew into telling them the two raped, murdered and burned a young photographer, Avery said Friday in his first public comments since authorities said his 16-year-old nephew confessed to the crimes.

In a phone interview from the Calumet County jail, Avery told the Associated Press that Brendan Dassey's statements to investigators about the murder are not true and Dassey is not very smart. He said the nephew commonly plays a Game Boy all day.

"He's 16 years old and with the detective it don't take much... to coerce him to say that stuff," he said. "You figure he can't even cut deer up... he can't even do none of that."

Avery, 43, was charged in November with killing Teresa Halbach on Oct. 31.

So let's recap. Someone who allegedly brutally raped and murdered a woman, burned her body, and left her remains and car on his property is accusing someone of not being very smart. Someone who speaks in broken English is calling someone stupid because he told the police all about their horrifying crime.

For those of you keeping score at home:

Stupid = Unable to cut up a deer and plays a Game Boy.

Smart = Able to cut up a female who you just raped and murdered.

Absolutely horrifying. Evil, thy name is Avery.
