Jeffrey Dahmer was beaten to death by another inmate at Columbia Correctional in Wisconsin on November 28, 1994.
Jeffrey Dahmer Brother, David
Jeffrey Dahmer had a younger brother named David, six years his junior, who was born to parents Lionel and Joyce in 1966. Jeffrey’s older brother David gave him his name, which is said to have caused Jeffrey resentment because he felt as though David took their parent’s love and attention away from him. Although the two brothers had different personalities – with David being described as outgoing compared to Jeffrey’s shy personality – Lionel told Larry King in 2004 that they enjoyed each other’s company nonetheless.
