This past summer, “The Jeffrey Dahmer Story,” a new documentary by the Chicago Sun-Times, revealed disturbing details of the sad life of Dahmer’s father, a millionaire Chicago businessman who was convicted in 2002 of murdering five people and mutilating and cannibalizing four others.
“A family with secrets”
Dahmer, now 58, confessed to the killings while serving 13 consecutive life sentences plus 30 years in prison. His father was sentenced to life, and his mother to 25 years in prison.
In 1996, Dahmer’s ex-wife and stepdaughter were convicted of first-degree murder in connection with the killings, but they were not permitted to testify at trial. The woman’s testimony could have changed the outcome of the sentencing, which was set for July.
The Sun-Times report noted that “despite the lack of evidence against his parents, his father’s crimes against them and their victims were never brought to court by police or prosecutors in the years leading up to their deaths.”
A source with knowledge of Dahmer’s life told the Sun-Times: “Jeff has told people who know him, ‘It was a family with secrets.'”
In an April 2014 interview with “Outside the Lines,” actor John Cusack commented: “So I think I would be inclined to believe that the family would rather keep Jeffrey Dahmer’s secret. If it was known, the media would sensationalize it to the point that he’d be in jail in a couple weeks. It’s all about the media. It’d be all about sensationalizing the story.”
Dahmer, he added, has “got a lot of guilt that keeps it in his mind.”
Cusack and his fellow actor Ashton Kutcher appeared on HBO’s “No Reservations” and discussed the subject of the Dahmer clan’s hidden secrets.
“I think it really is true that there are a lot of secrets,” Kutcher said. “Jeff’s father did get away with killing children, and that’s something that bothers him… Jeff had that much guilt to deal with.”
