No one can imagine going through such a life-changing ordeal. In case you’re unaware of Konerak’s brother, Somsack, TheCinemaholic shares that he was attacked by Dahmer before Konerak. Even worse, Dahmer was on probation when he brutally murdered Konerak.

As of now, Somsack is currently living with his wife in Wisconsin and has become partial to a private life. After being one of Dahmer’s victims that was able to escape with his life, no one can blame him.
