DAHMER NETFLIX. Evan Peters stars as serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer in the new Netflix series. But relatives of the victims made their anger heard when “Dahmer” was released.
[Mis à jour le 27 septembre 2022 à 14h37] Since going live on September 21, Dahmer has been one of the most-watched programs on Netflix. But Ryan Murphy’s mini-series on one of the most terrible American serial killers is not unanimous, even less among the families of the victims. Scott Gunkel, an LGBT activist who has crossed paths with the killer and certain victims in the past, tells Fox that “Monster: The Story of Jeffrey Dahmer” “rekindles a certain trauma for the LGBT community. Especially for those who have experienced the victims. They all had families. It’s unfortunate to always have new series or films coming out on these cases. It’s difficult to turn the page.”
On Twitter, one of the cousins of Errol Lindsey, murdered by Jeffrey Dahmer in 1991, shared his anger at the release of the Netflix series: “I don’t tell anyone what to watch or not, I know that true crime shows are very popular right now, but if you are interested in victims, my family is furious that this show exists. It makes us relive this trauma again and again, and why do that?” He also blames the platform for streaming not to have contacted the victims: “it is part of the public domain, so they have no obligation to warn (or pay) anyone. My family discovered the series at the same time as everyone world.”
Represented in “Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story”, Rita Isbell, Errol Lindsey’s sister, told Insider that she did not participate in the creation of the series or have watched the ten episodes: “I don’t I don’t need it, I lived it, I know exactly what happened”. If she considers that the reconstruction of her intervention during the faithful trial, she adds that Netflix never sought to contact her. She notably criticizes the streaming platform for “making money on this tragedy.” “I am old now. I live very comfortably. But the victims have children and grandchildren. If the series had allowed them to have a financial contribution, in any way, all this would not have seemed so cruel and careless.”
Created by Ryan Murphy, this ten-episode series looks back on the terrible journey of the man who was nicknamed the “Cannibal of Milwaukee”, while denouncing the societal and institutional abuses that led him to commit 17 crimes in 13 years. Jeffrey Dahmer, born May 21, 1960, is a serial killer who murdered 17 people between 1978 and 1991. His crimes also include dismemberment, rape and cannibalism.
Who Killed Jeffrey Dahmer?
Jeffrey Dahmer was sentenced in 1992 to 957 years in prison, but was killed two years later during his incarceration: he was attacked in 1994 by another inmate, Christopher Scarver, who had been imprisoned for life for the murder of his former supervisor . This one would have attacked him because he estimated that Dahmer did not regret his crimes. He dies from his injuries. Scarver is again sentenced to life.
