DAHMER – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, a new true crime series on Netflix, has revived interest in Dahmer nearly 30 years after his last murder. Evan Peters plays Jeffrey Dahmer, one of the most infamous serial killers in history, in a 10-part series that he claims will not rehash Dahmer’s chilling murders “Over and over again” but instead highlight the police’s failures during Dahmer’s gruesome killing spree, which lasted from 1978 to 1991.
The limited series may be a fictional retelling of Dahmer and his crimes, but the characters are based on real people who interacted with him throughout his life.
Some of them, like Jeffrey’s younger brother David, who was profoundly affected by his terrifying actions, may have left you wondering what they’re up to now. This is all the information we have on David Dahmer, Jeffrey’s brother.
Jeffrey Dahmer’s Brother David—Where Is He Now?
Jeffrey is seven years older than David, but David was taken away from him when he was just 12 years old. Joyce, his mother, reportedly won custody of him following her 1978 divorce from his father, Lionel.
David stayed with Joyce, while Jeffrey, now 18, remained in the care of his father and stepmother, Shari.
By the time of Jeffrey’s trial in 1991, David had reportedly graduated from the University of Cincinnati in Ohio and severed all ties with his brother. That explains why Lionel and Shari were always in court while he was absent.
Shari and Lionel appeared on Larry King Live to discuss “signs” of violence and questionable behavior on Jeffrey’s part, ten years after his death in prison. They provided brief updates on the family’s whereabouts in 2004 as well. Due to concerns for his professional and personal life, they shared the news that David “Did change his name.” They also announced their excitement about the impending arrival of David’s second grandchild.
