A path of sorrow was left in the wake of notorious serial killer, sex offender, and cannibal Jeffrey Dahmer.

The Dahmer family name was forever tarnished by his heinous acts, which included the murder and dismemberment of 17 men and boys between 1978 and 1991.

Who is Shari Dahmer?

After marrying Lionel Dahmer in 1978, Shari Jordan became the stepmother of one of the most prolific serial killers in history.

Joyce, Jeffrey’s mother, and he had recently divorced after their union fell apart.

Shari spent a lot of time with Jeffrey and David, Lionel’s two teenage sons, and soon assimilated into the Dahmer family.

She first met Jeffrey in Columbus, Wisconsin, where he was staying by himself after Joyce left.

Shari referred to him as “weak” and said she instantly wanted to “mother” him in a two-part Oxygen documentary titled Dahmer On Dahmer.

She asserted that although the killer was “extremely excellent at concealing his thoughts,” he was “embarrassed and humiliated” of his parent’s divorce.

Shari elucidated: “Mothering him was what I wanted to do and what most people wanted to do.

“Simply put, he was weak. As a mother, you can perceive those things even though I wasn’t his stepmother all of his life.

“When his mother left, and he wanted to stay behind, he became very lonely, and that’s when the first murder occurred.”

The stepmom recalled finding Jeffrey passed out in a drunken stupor and that she quickly realised he had a drinking problem.

She allegedly threatened to have him break into the liquor cupboard and replace the empty bottles with water.

Although she referred to him as a “closet drinker,” she asserted that there were no other indications of his unhealthy habits.

Shari and Lionel frequented Jeffrey’s home, which she recalled as always being “absolutely immaculate” and “spotless.”

Where is Shari Dahmer now?

Shari and Lionel stood with Jeffrey throughout the trial and frequently visited the murderer in prison despite learning of his terrible murder spree.

However, the pair chose a life of seclusion once the Dahmer name gained international recognition, refusing to defend his horrible deeds.

Later, Lionel wrote a book titled A Father’s Story in which he described The Milwaukee Cannibal’s early years.

According to The Cinemaholic, Shari is still living with her husband in Seville, Ohio, even though she is in her 80s.

She claimed in the past that in their tranquil neighbourhood, “nobody bothers” the couple.
