Where Is Jeffrey Dahmer’s Younger Brother David Now

It’s been over 25 years since Jeffrey Dahmer was arrested and sentenced to life in prison for the murder of 17 people.

His crimes were some of the most heinous and gruesome in American history, and his name has become synonymous with evil.

But what about Jeffrey Dahmer’s younger brother, David?

Where is he now? In this blog post, we’ll take a look at what we know about David Dahmer and where he is today.

Jeffrey Dahmer’s Early Life

Jeffrey Dahmer was born on May 21, 1960, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. His mother, Joyce Dahmer, was a stay-at-home mom, and his father, Lionel Dahmer,

was a chemical technician. Jeffrey was the oldest of two boys; his younger brother, David Dahmer, was born three years later.

The Dahmers were a typical middle-class family until Lionel Dahmer began having problems at work.

He was laid off from his job and began drinking heavily.

This put a strain on the marriage, and Joyce Dahmer soon filed for divorce. The divorce was finalized in 1978 when Jeffrey was 18 and David was 15.

The loss of their father had a profound effect on both boys. Jeffrey became withdrawn and would often spend hours alone in his room.

David tried to cope by becoming the class clown and making friends with everyone he could.

Despite the problems at home, both boys did well in school. Jeffrey graduated from high school in 1978 and went on to study chemistry at Ohio State University.

He dropped out after one semester, but not before meeting some people who would later play a role in his crimes.

In 1980, Jeffrey moved back to Milwaukee to live with his grandmother. It was during this time that he began exhibiting some of the behaviors that would later make him infamous.

He began collecting roadkill and storing it in his freezer; he also started fantasizing about killing someone and having sex with their corpse. These

The murders

Between 1978 and 1991, Jeffrey Dahmer murdered 17 men and boys. Many of his victims were found in his home, which he turned into a veritable house of horrors,

complete with body parts in the fridge and a collection of skulls. In 1992,

he was arrested and sentenced to life in prison, where he was killed by another inmate in 1994.

Dahmer’s younger brother, David, was only 8 years old when his brother’s first victim was killed.

He grew up knowing that his brother was a monster, but he never imagined the extent of his crimes. In an interview with Oprah Winfrey in 2006,

David said that he felt “a lot of guilt” because he didn’t do more to stop his brother’s killing spree.

Nowadays, David is a father and grandfather who lives a quiet life out of the spotlight.

He has said that he thinks about his brother every day and still feels guilty for not being able to stop him.

The impact on David

Jeffrey Dahmer’s younger brother, David, was only four years old when Jeffrey was arrested for his crimes. As a result,

he grew up without knowing his brother. In an interview with Oprah Winfrey,

David said that he “always wondered what happened” to Jeffrey, but didn’t learn the details of his crimes until he was an adult.

The impact of Jeffrey’s crimes on David has been profound. In the same interview with Oprah,

David said that he has struggled with depression and addiction as a result of growing up in the shadow of his brother’s notoriety. He also said that he has forgiven Jeffrey for what he did.

David’s life now

Jeffrey Dahmer’s younger brother, David, is now married with children and living a quiet life in Wisconsin.

He has stayed out of the public eye for the most part but did give an interview to The New York Times in 2006.

In it, he spoke about his brother’s crimes and how he has coped with them.

“It was hard to hear all the gruesome details,” David said of learning about what Jeffrey had done.

“But I had to face up to it. I can’t change what happened, so I have to deal with it.”

David has said that he still loves his brother and feels pity for him. “I think about him every day,” he told the Times. “I still love him.”

Conclusion

Jeffrey Dahmer’s younger brother, David, is now living a quiet life in Ohio with his wife and two children. After years of estrangement,

the two reconnected in 2014 and have been rebuilding their relationship ever since.
In 2016, David spoke out about his experience growing up with a serial killer for a brother in an effort to help others who might be going through something similar. Today,

he continues to work on healing the wounds of his past and raising awareness about mental illness and its impact on families.
