Jeffrey Dahmer Bio – Jeffrey Dahmer Wiki

Jeffrey Lionel Dahmer, also known as the Milwaukee Cannibal or the Milwaukee Monster, was an American serial killer and sex offender who committed the murder and dismemberment of seventeen men and boys between 1978 and 1991.


Jeffrey Dahmer was 34 years old.


The youngest known victim of notorious serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer was a teenage boy who immigrated to the United States from Laos a decade before his violent death.

Konerak Sinthasomphone, who was 14 years old at the time of his murder, fled with his parents and seven siblings from Laos to Milwaukee, Wisc., in 1979, in search of better opportunities, according to a 1991 report by The New York Times.

But before Konerak was found dismembered in Dahmer’s apartment, his older brother Somsack, was the first of the Sinthasomphone siblings to be victimized by the infamous murderer, whose crimes are chronicled in the Netflix docuseries, Monster.

According to The Times, Dahmer was convicted of sexually assaulting Somsack in 1989 after he convinced the then-13-year-old boy to follow him to his apartment to take a nude photoshoot in exchange for money.

Dahmer was initially sentenced to eight years in prison for the assault, but after writing a judge a letter of regret, he was granted early release one year into his prison sentence, per The Times.

At the time of Konerak’s murder, Dahmer was still on probation for Somsack’s assault.

On May 27, 1991, Dahmer’s neighbour Glenda Cleveland, her daughter Sandra Smith, and her niece, Nicole Childress alerted authorities of a disoriented, bleeding boy, later identified as Konerak, roaming the streets near their home, PEOPLE previously reported.

According to court documents from a suit, the Sinthasomphone family filed against the city of Milwaukee and the two responding police officers, Konerak “was seen wandering dazed and naked on the corner of 25th and State in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.”

Police officers responded. Dahmer arrived shortly after the officers and convinced them that Konerak was his drunk lover.

“Despite the vigorous protestations of several African-Americans on the scene, the officers and Dahmer led Sinthasomphone back to Dahmer’s apartment, where the body of one of Dahmer’s victims lay unnoticed in an adjoining room. Concluding that Dahmer and Sinthasomphone were adult homosexual lovers, the officers ultimately left Sinthasomphone with Dahmer,” the suit states.

“Thirty minutes later, he became Dahmer’s thirteenth victim,” the suit states.

Dahmer was convicted of the murder, rape, and dismemberment of at least 17 men and boys in Milwaukee from 1978 to 1991.
