pink news We have reached out to Netflix for comment.
Dahmer – Monsters: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story It is told through the lives of victims affected by systemic racism and the institutional failures of the police force that allowed Dahmer to continue killing. It also highlights mistakes made by law enforcement during the search for Dahmer.
Dahmer met many of his victims at bus stops, bars, bookstores and shopping malls. His murders included amputation, necrophilia, and cannibalism, with Dahmer later becoming known as the Milwaukee Cannibals.
Dahmer’s crimes left a lasting mark on Milwaukee’s LGBTQ+ community. As drag performer BJ Daniels said: WISN He recalled working in the city during Dahmer’s crime spree.
Daniels performed at Club 219, a gay bar where Dahmer targeted his victims. During her performance at her 1991 Pride fest, a woman asked if she had seen her son, who later turned out to be one of Dahmer’s victims. I remember asking.
“A woman came up to me and we were doing drugs. She knew we were drag queens. She said, ‘Have you seen my son? “said. She put up a little snapshot,” Daniels said. “Come and find out that this young man, whose photo she showed me, was one of the victims.”
Daniels felt that the documentary “fetishizes this whole horrifying moment in Milwaukee history.”
