Jeffery Dahmer’s Father Lionel Dahmer Said He Missed Warning Signs in Dr. Phil Interview

Dr. Phil will give insight into Jeffrey Dahmer’s mind and deranged ways. The three-part Dr. Phil special on serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer features an exclusive interview with Dahmer’s father, Lionel. 

“At first, I couldn’t fathom how he turned out to be this far down the continuum. I mean, we’re all on a continuum, we all do bad things, we all sin,” Lionel tells Dr. Phil. “He was at the extreme of the continuum. i couldn’t at first understand how he could have done those things.” 

Inside Edition hears Dr. Phil describe the research he and his team did. “a treasure trove of information and insights” in the interview he conducted with Dahmer’s father. And though Lionel Dahmer was shocked by his son’s crimes, Dr. Phil says the serial killer’s dad was not shocked by the fact that Jeffrey Dahmer was different. 

“He knew that his fixation on these dead animals and dissecting them was not normal, but he admits that he missed warning signs,”He says.  

This special by Dr. Phil comes after the Netflix blockbuster series about the notorious killer. In which Lionel Dahmer shows his son learning the art of taxidermy, Dahmer might have developed some kind of phobia by experimenting on dead animals in his vulnerable years.   

Dr. Phil interviews also the sister and victim of Dahmer who famously unloaded upon the killer during his 1992 sentencing. 

“What did you feel a presence when you looked him in the eye?”Dr. Phil questions the woman. 

“That I was face to face with Satan himself,”She responds.
