Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, Netflix’s new true crime drama, has affected us so much that we are trying to fill in the gaps that the show’s creator, Ryan Murphy, left on purpose for us to fill in.
Even though the name of the limited series might make you think it’s all about the killer and what gives him pleasure, the story is actually told from the point of view of the victims of America’s most famous serial killer.
The 10 episodes were set up so that they talked about the brutal way the Milwaukee Monster killed. They also talked about some of his victims, like Tony Hughes, who was deaf and mute, and Ronald Flowers, who tried to report the crime.
They also talked about Tracy Edwards, who was the only person to survive the whole case, Lionel Dahmer, who was Jeffrey Dahmer’s father, Christopher Scraver, who killed the monster Jeffrey Dahmer, and even Jesse Anders. Now, people all over the world want to know more about Shari Dahmer, who was Jeffrey Dahmer’s stepmother.
Who is Shari Dahmer?
In 1978, Shari married Jeffrey’s father, Lionel Dahmer. This was after Lionel got a divorce from Jeffrey’s mother, Joyce, who had been his first wife. Reports say that Jeffrey and Shari met for the first time at his mother’s house in Columbus, Wisconsin. At the time, he was 18 and living there alone because his mother had moved away.
In the Dahmer for Dahmer documentary on Oxygen, Shar talked about how she felt after meeting Jeffrey. “What I and most other people wanted to do was take care of him. He just had a weak spot. Even if I hadn’t been his stepmother for his whole life, as a mother I could tell,” she said.
She said, “He was embarrassed and ashamed that his parents got divorced..
He didn’t tell his friends how he really felt because he didn’t want them to know. He was good at hiding how he felt, but he was embarrassed and ashamed. When his mother left and he didn’t want to go with her, he got very lonely. That’s when the first murder happened.
Where Is Shari Dahmer Now?
Shari, who is in her late 80s, still lives with her husband and Jeffrey’s dad, Lionel, in their home in Eville, Ohio. She had said before that in their quiet area, no one bothers the couple anymore.
Shari said that she is proud of the last name, even though David, Jeffrey’s brother, decided to break up with the family name and legally changed it. “I put it to use at work. I’m still using it. I don’t have any reason to hide who I am from anyone. “We didn’t do anything wrong,” she said.
Shari and Lionel stood by Jeffrey during his trial and visited him in jail often. They didn’t make excuses for what he did, but they did feel sorry for him.
Shari Dahmer And Lionel Dahmer On Larry King
In 2004, Shari Dahmer and her husband, Lionel Dahmer, went on Larry King Live. It had been 10 years since their son, Jeffrey Dahmer, was brutally killed by Scarver. In the show, they were not afraid to talk about how strange it was to raise a killer.
When asked why they suddenly wanted to be in front of the camera, the couple said it was because they wanted to help other people. “If we can stop another Jeff, that would be a blessing. “It hasn’t been easy, and no one will let us forget that,” Shari Dahmer said back then.
“We have to find out what and why he did it. If we know more about Jeff, we might be able to stop others from becoming monsters,” she said.
Shari Dahmer also made the tabloids pay attention to the fact that she and her husband had the same last name, Dahmer, even though it was a sign of evil after Jeffrey Dahmer.
“There’s no reason for me to lie about who I am, and neither did we. Shari Dahmer said, “I’m still proud of my name, and I still use it in business.”
