Dahmer was born on May 21, 1960 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He was the first of his parents’ two sons. His mother, Joyce Annette (née Flint; February 7, 1936 – November 27, 2000), taught people how to use teletype machines. His father, Lionel Herbert Dahmer (born July 29, 1936), studied chemistry at Marquette University and later worked as a research chemist.
Lionel Dahmer’s ancestors came from Germany and Wales, Joyce Dahmer’s from Norway and Ireland.
Some sources say Dahmer was not nursed as a baby. Other sources, however, state that both of Dahmer’s parents spoiled him as a baby and toddler, although his mother was known to be tense, craving attention and pity, and argumentative with her husband and neighbors.
When Dahmer entered the first grade, Lionel spent most of his time at the university. When he was home, his hypochondriac and depressed wife kept asking for his attention and spending more and more time in bed. At least once, she used Equanil to attempt suicide. So both parents didn’t spend much time with their son. He later said that from an early age he felt “insecure about the stability of the family” because he recalled his parents being very angry with each other and arguing a lot when he was young.
Dahmer was an “active and happy kid,” but he’s changed a lot after having surgery on two hernias just before his fourth birthday.
In elementary school, Dahmer was considered shy and quiet. One of his teachers later said that she saw early signs of abandonment in him due to his father’s absence and his mother’s illnesses, which worsened when she was expecting her second child. Still, Dahmer had a few friends when he was in elementary school.

The family moved to Doylestown, Ohio in October 1966
 When Joyce had a baby in December, Jeffrey had to choose the name for his new brother. He chose David. Lionel received his degree and that same year began working as an analytical chemist in nearby Akron, Ohio.
Dahmer was interested in dead animals from a young age. He may have been interested in dead animals when he was four years old and saw his father retrieve animal bones from under the family home. Lionel said that Dahmer was “strangely excited” about the sound the bones made and became obsessed with them. He initially called them his “fiddlesticks”. Sometimes he would search under and around the family home for more bones. He also looked inside the bodies of living animals to find out where their bones were.
In 1968 the family moved to the community of Bath in Summit County, Ohio. This was their third home in two years and their sixth home since they got married. The house was on an acre of woods, and Dahmer began collecting large bugs, such as dragonflies and moths, and the bones of small animals, such as chipmunks and squirrels, in a small cabin a short walk from the house. Some of these bones were kept in formaldehyde jars at the hut.
Two years later, while having chicken dinner with Lionel, Dahmer asked him what would happen if he soaked chicken bones in bleach. Lionel was happy that his son seemed interested in science, so he showed him how to safely bleach and store animal bones. Dahmer used these techniques to preserve the bones he collected. He also began collecting dead animals, including roadkill, which he would dissect and bury near the cabin. Sometimes he placed the skulls on makeshift crosses. One of Dahmer’s friends said he told him he was interested in how animals “fit together.” In 1975, Dahmer cut off the head of a dead dog, nailed his body to a tree, and stuck the dog’s head on a stick in the woods behind his house. He later invited a friend to see the exhibit and said he found the bones by accident as a “prank.”
Lionel taught his son how to preserve animal bones the same year that Joyce began taking more Equanil, laxatives, and sleeping pills each day. This made it even more difficult for her to talk to her husband and children.
Ever since he was a freshman at Revere High School, Dahmer has been known as a weirdo.
[n 3] By the time he was 14, he was drinking beer and liquor during the day. He often hid his alcohol in the jacket he wore to school. He told a classmate who asked him why he drank scotch in a morning history class that the alcohol he drank was “my medicine.” The staff thought Dahmer was polite, very smart, and had average grades in his freshman year, although he didn’t talk much. He enjoyed playing tennis and was in the high school band for a short time.
Dahmer found out he was gay when he turned 13, but he didn’t tell his parents. Early in his teens, he had a brief relationship with another teenager, but they never met. Dahmer later said that he began fantasizing about dominating and controlling a totally submissive male partner when he was in his early to mid-teens. His masturbatory fantasies gradually changed so that he focused his fantasies on men’s chests and upper bodies. Over time, these fantasies became mixed up with dissections. When Dahmer was about 16, he had a fantasy that he would KO a certain male jogger he found attractive and then use his body sexually. Dahmer once hid in the bushes with a baseball bat to wait for this man, but he didn’t come by that day. Dahmer later said that this was his first attempt at attacking someone and making them obey him.
Dahmer was sort of a class clown at RHS. He often played pranks, which became known as “doing a dahmer”. For example, he would bitch and pretend he had an epileptic seizure or cerebral palsy at school and in stores. Dahmer sometimes did these things to get money so he could buy alcohol.
Reverie, the 1978 Revere High School yearbook, includes a picture of Dahmer.
By 1977, Dahmer’s grades had dropped. His parents paid for a private tutor, but it didn’t work out very well. That same year, his parents tried to save their marriage by going to a counseling center. They kept fighting all the time. In September 1977, Lionel found out that Joyce was having a brief affair. He and Joyce decided to divorce and told their sons they wanted to do it amicably. In early 1978, Lionel moved out of the house and stayed for a while in a motel on North Cleveland’s Massillon Road.
Dahmer dropped out of high school in May 1978. A few weeks before graduating, one of Dahmer’s teachers saw him downing several cans of beer while sitting near the school parking lot. When the teacher threatened to tell the principal, Dahmer told him he had “a lot of problems” at home and that the school counselor knew about it. In the spring of that year, Joyce and David left the family home and moved to Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin to live with relatives. Dahmer had just turned 18 and was still living at home with his family. On July 24, 1978, Dahmer’s parents finally separated. Joyce has to keep her younger son and gets child support.
Steven Hicks was killed
Dahmer killed his first human three weeks after graduating from high school in 1978. On June 18, Dahmer picked up a nearly 19-year-old hitchhiker named Steven Mark Hicks. Dahmer tricked the young man into coming to his house by telling him he was drinking. Hicks, who was hitchhiking to a rock concert in Chippewa Lake Park, Ohio, agreed to walk Dahmer to his house because Dahmer promised to buy them “a few beers” when they got there.
Dahmer said seeing Hicks shirtless in the street made him feel sexual. However, once Hicks started talking about girls, he knew that any sexual advances he made would be rejected.
After a few hours of talking, drinking, and listening to music, Hicks said, “I didn’t want him to leave, and he didn’t want to leave.” Dahmer beat Hicks to death with a dumbbell that weighed 10 pounds. He later said that he twice hit Hicks from behind with the barbell while Hicks was sitting in a chair. When Hicks passed out, Dahmer strangled him to death with the barbell. He then stripped off Hick’s clothes, looked at his chest with his hands, and masturbated while standing over the body.
The next day, Dahmer cut up Hicks’ body in his basement. Afterward, he placed the body parts in a shallow grave in his backyard. A few weeks later he dug up the bones and took the flesh from them. He placed the meat in acid and then flushed the acid and meat down the toilet. He used a sledgehammer to smash the bones and scattered them in the woods behind the family home.
