Jeffrey Dahmer The father of an American serial killer is nearly found with a severed head
A previously unpublished interview with the serial killer’s father shows that many murders could have been prevented.
Between 1978 and 1991, Jeffrey Dahmer raped, murdered, and cannibalized 17 young men in Wisconsin and Ohio, United States. The story of serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer has been retconned time and time again in numerous films and documentaries, most recently in the hit Netflix ten-part series “The Beast.”
The father almost found out the secrets
A previously unpublished interview with Jeffrey Dahmer’s father has now surfaced, revealing explosive details of the story and putting the case in a different light, as The Daily Mail reports. Because: A father almost discovered his son’s horrific secret.
Jeffrey Dahmer’s father, Lionel, reflected in an interview with the famous American psychologist and TV presenter Dr. Phil talks about a missed opportunity to uncover his son’s serial murder.

Dahmer’s close relationship with his father is depicted in the controversial and hugely successful Netflix series Monster. Dr. Phil aired the three-day special “In The Presence of Evil: Face to Face with Jeffrey Dahmer” in the US this week, which aims to tell the killer’s “true story” and explore what made him a serial killer.
In the interview recorded in the 1990s, the 86-year-old father recalls an incident that nearly exposed his son. Because Jeffrey barely stopped the father from opening the wooden box containing the severed head of Anthony Sears (26), who was murdered in 1989.
The father suspects pornography in his son
Lionel Dahmer suspected that the box contained pornography, about which the mother repeatedly complained. He searched for a tool to open it, but Jeffrey caught his father and complained that he was not given “one square foot” of his own space.
In the end, Jeffrey convinced his father to wait until the next day to open it. Also to protect the grandmother who was sitting in the next room and overheard the argument between the two. But Lionel should never look in the box.
“Somehow I’m happy, but somehow not.”
“In a way I’m glad, but in a way not, because I didn’t ask more about it at the time. Because I would probably have gone crazy if I’d seen the content,” says Lionel. The next day Jeffrey let his dad take a look — and there were porn magazines in the box. .
After Jeffrey’s arrest, the father and son discuss the incident again. I asked him, “What would you have done, Jeff, if you had opened it?” ’ And he said something like, ‘It would have been game over,’ something unemotional, noncommittal.” Which is why Lionel is sure: He could have saved lives if he had taken more action at the time.
