Jeffrey Dahmer was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. At age 4, he had surgery to correct a double hernia. His family soon moved to Bath, Ohio. He reportedly dissected already dead animals as a child. He struggled with alcoholism and suffered from extremely low self-esteem. After years of constant fighting, his parents underwent a divorce when Jeffrey was 18.
