PORTAGE (WKOW) – Brendan Dassey, one of the men documented in Netflix's “Making a Murderer,” has been moved to the Columbia Correctional Institution in Portage.

Our Milwaukee affiliate, WISN, reports that he was transferred from the Green Bay Correctional Institution on Wednesday.

A spokesperson for the Wisconsin Department of Corrections says inmate transfers are common but would not say why Dassey was transferred. Sources close to Dassey say several factors are behind the move, including Dassey being in the national spotlight because of the documentary.
