The one point that has intrigued everyone is how did David really disappear especially when his brother is one of the most renowned criminals.
How Did David Dhamer Disappear?
Jeffrey Dahmer’s younger brother David Dahmer allegedly disappeared when Jeffrey got arrested for his crime. At that time completed his graduation at the University of Cincinnati in Ohio. His disappearance really came into the public light, when he refused to attend any of the hearings, proceedings, or trials of his brother.
He according to their father decided to cut ties with Jeffrey at the age of 18. To further avoid any connection with his brother’s name or even the slightest relation to him David also changed his name legally. He did this to avoid anyone connecting him with the brother who is in the public light and so are the people around him for his dreadful murders and crimes.

He also never attended or agreed to attend any interviews, public appearances that will be published or broadcasted, or share the little experience that he had with Jeffrey in the short span of time that they shared together before their parents separated. He never intentionally disappeared from Jeffrey’s life before he was arrested. But the separation took place at his young age, due to the separation of their parents which led to David living with their mother and Jeffrey living with their father and both staying pretty far away from each other.
His disappearance from the life of Jeffrey took place way back but the relationship broke between the two brothers completely without any strings attached when Jeffrey got arrested. David thus at this time disappeared from the public eye that would make him look or attach a title to his name of the criminal because of his brother by changing his name and denying every public attending related to Jeffrey or his crimes to live a peaceful life and a new life far from all this.
Who Is David Dahmer?
David Dahmer is Jeffrey Dahmer’s younger brother. He was born 7 years after Jeffrey that is on December 18, 1933, and it is said that David was named by his brother though there is no confirmation. The relationship between the two brothers was not very strong or loving. The reason being, reportedly Jeffrey had the feeling that David was given more attention from their parents than he which filled a feeling of resentment in him. Their personalities according to his father were also different, David being an outgoing one and Jeffrey being a reserved and shy one. With the separation of their parents, the wall between the two brothers broadened even more leading to their separation as well.
Where Is David Dahmer Now?
The whereabouts of David Dahmer are not actually known or have been made public as he has never appeared as a part of Jeffrey’s life in public and his new identity is not available as well. According to his father and stepmother, however, David is 55 years old and is living a good life. He is married and they share two children together. He also has a good career. Apart from this nothing as such is available about him in terms of the place he is living, his kids, or his wife. He is living a new life that does not connect him to the crimes or make him a victim of the crimes that he didn’t even know or commit but were done by his brother.
