Jeffrey Dahmer’s Father

One of the most horrific and bloodiest serial killers of the 20th century, Dahmer was popular as  ‘Milwaukee Butcher’. He had murdered 17 youths and children between 1978 and 1991. The ruthless maniac used to keep their bodies after killing and even eat some of them!

He was caught by the police in 1991 and sentenced to 16 life sentences! He was murdered however 3 years later. For decades, his story has been told countless times and his name is synonymous with crime and terror.

Apart from Dahmer, the Netflix series has also shed light on his parents Lionel Dahmer and Joyce Anette Flint. Talking about his father, he is currently 86 years old and lives a secluded life in Ohio. He decided to give up on his public life in 2020 after spending many years talking about his son’s wrongdoings and crimes. He is a chemist. He has also written a book, titled A Father’s Story, in which he has talked about Jeffrey’s early years. The book was published in 1994, just a few years after Jeffrey was murdered. The book talks about his relationship with Jeffrey, how his crimes had impacted him, how everything strengthened his relationship with Jeffrey etc.

Trying to explain what might have triggered their criminal mindset of Jeffrey, Lionel explains in one of the passages of the book that the medications his wife took during pregnancy, might have affected Jeffrey’s brain in a very negative way.

Apart from this, he also questions whether Jeffrey’s shyness during his childhood was something he should have paid special attention to because a part of him believes that it might be the cause of him becoming a horrible criminal. Lionel also blames himself for not giving Jeffrey the required love and attention he must have needed. Lionel’s visits during Jeffery’s imprisonment period were very consistent and always began with a hug because a part of him felt sorry for everything and blamed him for everything that had happened.

As far as the whereabouts of Jeffery’s mother are concerned, she died in 2000 because of aggressive breast cancer. She was separated from her husband in the early seventies when Jeffrey was 18 years old. The constant unhappiness and never-ending arguments because of Lionel’s wish to get a doctorate, drifted them apart. According to her mother, she never saw any signs in Jeffrey which must have been a cause of concern for her. According to her Jeffrey has always been a very normal boy just like the other kids. So according to her, there was nothing in Jeffrey’s childhood that could have triggered the criminal inside him.

A very interesting thing is that after Jeffrey’s death, his mother wanted his brain to be donated to science for investigation so that it could be discovered whether there was any explainable cause behind his ruthless behavior. But this did not happen because Lionel opted for cremation.

Some of her statements reveal that she was never able to get over the horrific acts his son had committed. She had even tried to commit suicide twice once just after a few months after Jeffrey’s death and the second time it was on his birthday in 1996. The first time she try to kill herself she turned on the gas oven and left the door open. She was however discovered before she could die. The second time she was trying to commit suicide she called 911 and was trying to consume carbon monoxide in the garage but failed.
