Fans of the true-crime series were eager to find out more about Dahmer’s victims and family members, including his stepmother Shari Dahmer. Here is everything you need to know about Shari Dahmer.
According to The Cinemaholic, Shari appeared in the Oxygen documentary “Dahmer and Dahmer” to discuss meeting Jeffrey for the first time.
“What I wanted to do, and what most people wanted to do, was mother him,” said Shari. “He was just vulnerable. Even if I wasn’t his stepmother all his life, as a mother you sense those things.”
She said that the only thing that ever stood out about him was his drinking habit, but finding out about his secret life totally amazed her.
Furthermore, Shari divulged that she once went to Jeffrey’s house in an attempt to find incriminating evidence. ‘When I entered Jeffrey’s apartment, I looked through his refrigerator and bathroom,’ she told The Cinemaholic. ‘I pulled back the bathroom shower curtain. His apartment was immaculate at the time.’
