David Dahmer’s Childhood
David Dahmer was Jeffrey Dahmer’s brother. He was born on February 28, 1960 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He had a troubled childhood and was known to be very violent.

Early Years as a Criminal
David Dahmer was born on May 27, 1960, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to Jeffrey Dahmer and Joyce Smith.
Growing up, David was always a bit different from the other children. He exhibited strange behaviors and had difficulty fitting in with his peers.
Eventually, these differences led to bullying by other students which only made Dahmer’s problems worse.
In 1978, Dahmer met 17-year-old Konerak Sinthasomphone at a party. Konerak was from Laos and spoke very little English,
making the two boys feel comfortable around each other. The two began spending more time together and soon became lovers.
Dahmer would later call Konerak his “most perfect sexual partner.”
The two continued to get into trouble together until February of 1979 when police were called to a home where they found Dahmer raping and dismembering 16-year-old Tracy Edwards. At the time of her death, Tracy was pregnant with Dahmer’s child.
Dahmer went on to commit additional murders over the next few months including 18-year-old Christopher Byers who he killed after kidnapping him while he was hitchhiking, 17-year-old Steven Hicks who he bludgeoned with a barbell before murdering him,
19-year-old James Doohan who he strangled with a cord before decapitating him, 16-year-old Kip Kinkel who he drowned after kidnapping him from his school, 15-year-old Kimberly Le
