Here’s Everything We Know About Jeffrey Dahmer’s Father, Lionel

Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, has been causing a world of controversy for the streaming giant Netflix.

The true-crime docu-series, which features Evan Peters in the title role, purports to tell the story of the serial killer through the eyes of his victims.

But as Cosmopolitan correctly points out, Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story is proving to be more sensational than informative — and it’s at the expense of Black and brown families.

The outlet shared thoughts from Eric Perry — the cousin of one of Dahmer’s victims — who has been one of the most vocal opponents of the docu-series.

Peters, however, has a different take on the controversy. “We had one rule going into this from Ryan [Murphy], that it would never be told from Dahmer’s point of view,” he said in a promotional video for the series. “It’s called The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, but it’s not just him and his backstory: It’s the repercussions, it’s how society and our system failed to stop him multiple times because of racism, homophobia. It’s just a tragic story.”

Throughout Dahmer’s life, there have been only a few constants — with one being his father, Lionel, whose story is featured in the first part of the show. Let’s take a look at what we know about him.
