As much as their crimes have been very cruel, terrifying and that the history of the USAI would like to erase forever everything he committed, the series of Netflix that counts the murders ofJeffrey Dahmer It has generated a lot of interest in remembering what happened in those times and also in knowing what happened to the lives of his relatives and people who once surrounded him.

Monster: The Jeffey Dahmer Story” presents several characters who were in the real life of the criminal, mainly his relatives, of whom it was known what they did after the arrest and death of the person in charge of 17 murders of people. For example, today we know what became ofhis father’s lifeand even from her neighbor Glenda Cleveland, but one character seems to have disappeared.

This is his younger brother, David Dahmer , who is not mentioned much in the series thatis available on Netflix. Moreover, after Jeffrey’s arrest and death, no more was known about him, as if he had become a person who does not exist, but everything has his motives and now we will detail what all this is due to.


David Dahmer was born on December 18, 1966 and was very close to Jeffrey in his early childhood years until, according to various media reports, the future murderer would resent him for having taken away his parents’ attention. However, that feeling did not bring major consequences.

The first time that both separated was, as seen in the series, during the separation of their parents. Joyce, their biological mother who passed away in 2000, gained full custody of both, but took only the younger of them, leaving only Jeffrey.

Since then, in the Netflix series there is no mention of him again, except when he communicates with his father or stepmother by phone, without even hearing his voice. For example, in the story it is seen when Shari receives a call from him, informing her that her mother tried to take her own life.


Not much information is known about him, but it was revealed that in 1991, when the criminal was arrested, David was graduating from the University of Cincinnati in Ohio , so he has a career that he has maintained throughout the years.

During the capture and hearings of Jeffrey Dahmer, his younger brother was never present, marking a distance with him, since he chose not to want to know anything at all due to the heinous crimes he committed and everything that could happen to him due to their family connection.

The father of the boys, Lionel Dahmer, and his wife Shari were in 2004 on the program “Larry King Live” to talk about what happened with the late serial killer and David consulted him for part of the interview.

It was there that both announced that David had changed his name in order to protect his identity and get away from everything in the media.

They also stated that, by then, Jeffrey’s younger brother already had a career, a wife and was expecting the birth of his second child.

The only thing that is known about him is that he is currently 55 years old and continues to live a private life, away from all the chaos that his brother sowed.
