Born May 21, 1960 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Parents Lionel and Joyce Dahmer. Jeffery was a very happy energetic kid until the age of four when he had to get a correction surgery to correct a double hernia, this seemed to effect Jeffery. He became increasingly withdrawn.
In school Jeffery was disengaged, tense and largely friendless.
June of 1978, Dahmer picked up hitchhiker Steven Hicks and took him to his parents house, got him drunk then beat him over the head then proceeded to choke him with a bar bell.
Dahmer had a drinking problem, he later dropped out of Ohio state University. Then after his dad remarried he joined the army and was later discharged due to his drinking problem.
After being kicked form the army Dahmer was arrested for disorderly conduct, then his father sent him to live with his grandma in Wisconsin. Later on in 1989 he was arrested for indecent exposure two boys accused him o masturbating in front of them. For this this landed Dahmer in jail for one year probationary sentence.
In 1987, Dahmer took his second victim, Steven Tuomi. They checked into a hotel and they started drinking. Dahmer eventually awoke to find Tuomi dead; he had no memory of the previous night’s activities. To get rid of Tuomi’s body he brought a large suitcase, he took it to his grandmother’s basement. While in the basement, he dismembered and masturbated on the corpse before disposing of the remains.
