Some important facts are omitted in the new Netflix portrayal of Jeffrey Dahmer‘s life and murders, including what happened to the serial killer's younger brother, David Dahmer.
David Dahmer, who was born in 1966, seven years after his brother, is portrayed as a little child in the first few episodes of “Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story” before he almost vanishes from the narrative. This disappearance closely resembles what actually occurred.
About David Dahmer
The legendary serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer‘s younger brother is David Dahmer. He was born in December 1966 to parents Lionel and Joyce Dahmer, and his brother gave him the name. The bond between the siblings was strained because Jeffrey began to “resent” his younger brother because he was envious of the attention he was receiving.
The brothers, who were seven years younger than Jeffrey, were split up after their parents' acrimonious divorce in 1978. After winning custody, Joyce took David, who was just 12 years old, to live with her in Wisconsin, leaving Jeffrey, who was 18 at the time, at home with his father so he could finish high school. That same year, he would go on to murder Steven Hicks, his first victim.

The 55-year-identity old's is unknown, and it is unknown where he is right now, although it is presumed that he is still alive. David, who was 18 years old at the time of Jeffrey‘s detention in 1991, made the decision to “break all links” with his brother.
According to Lionel and Shari Dahmer in 2004, he went on to graduate from the University of Cincinnati, have a career, get married, and have at least two children.
