etradefactory.comThe daughter of one of Jeffrey Dahmer’s victims said she couldn’t sleep for weeks and had nightmares about the serial killer, even seeing him in his nightmares. Tatiana Banks is the daughter of Errol Lindsey, a 19-year-old man murdered by Dahmer in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1991. Lindsey, the youngest of six, met Dahmer in April of that year. Dahmer lured Lindsey to his apartment, where she drugged and experimented with him.

Banks, a 31-year-old who currently lives in Arizona, was born six months after her father was murdered. In an interview with Insider, Banks said she learned about what happened to her father over time from family members and the media. Growing up in Milwaukee, it was hard to avoid stories about Dahmer. “When I was young,

I was told he was murdered by a Milwaukee serial killer,” she said, adding that she was about 4 or 5 when her mother first told her about her father’s death. She recalled reading a newspaper article about the murders when she was about 11 or 12 and started looking online for more information, prompting her to ask her mother more questions about what had happened. “I still think about it today,”

Banks said, adding that she is still learning new details about how her dad eventually crossed paths with one of the world’s most famous serial killers. Dahmer’s murder has received renewed attention since the release of the new Netflix series, “Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story”.  

Banks, who never had the chance to meet her father, said she feels like her grieving is different; complicated by the fact that she never knew him.

Still, she says the Netflix show has opened old wounds for her as well: Like Isbell, she said she was not contacted by Netflix about the show.

“I feel like they should have reached out because it’s people who are actually still grieving from that situation,” she said, adding she was at a place where she had in some ways come to terms with what happened to her father. “That chapter of my life was closed and they reopened it, basically.”

Banks, who has largely avoided watching any shows or movies about Dahmer, watched just one episode of the Netflix series — the one that depicts her aunt’s victim impact statement in court. She said it was “heartbreaking” to watch: “I wished I could be there to take her pain away.”
