Netflix’s ‘Dahmer’ phenomenon has grabbed headlines, but what many are wondering is why their grandmother ‘never’ suspected anything.

Just a few weeks ago ‘Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story’ or ‘Dahmer’ came to Netflix to terrify us. The story of one of the most macabre serial killers in the United States has made an impact and continues to make headlines.

The story of a ‘man’ who established his terror for 13 years and killed 17 men and teenagers. He tortured, raped, dismembered, and sometimes even ate the corpses he left behind, and three of these murders occurred in his grandmother’s apartment.

Jamie Doxtator, Richard Guerrero and Anthony Sears were murdered under the roof of Catherine Jemima Hughes and now many are once again wondering if the sweet old lady knew of her grandson’s plans.

What is known about Catherine, Jeff Dahmer’s grandmother

The Netflix series shows us how Catherine suspects at all times that her grandson is not very normal to say. In the more than eight years that “the butcher from Milwaukee” lives with his grandmother, he hides mannequins in his bed, masturbates at public fairs and is arrested for sexually assaulting a minor.

Little is known about Catherine other than that she was always trying to get her to stop drinking, go to church, and reform. Dahmer was sent with her to her discharge from the army in 1981 and stayed in her house until 1990, two years after Catherine asked her grandson to move out because he could no longer deal with her. more with her alcohol problems and altercations.

However, the truth is that there is no evidence that Catherine really knew what was happening with her grandson. Furthermore, according to a 1991 article (via ), it appears that she learned of his crimes once he was arrested and was horrified by this.

He never testified and died at the age of 88 , just months after Dahmer was convicted. Then, many rumors came to light, as there were those who believed that the serial killer had something to do with the death of the old woman… But the truth is that the cause of the death of the old woman was never proven.
