The family of one of Jeffrey Dahmer's victims said they're 'retraumatized' by Netflix's reenactment of the 'emotional' courtroom breakdown and claimed the streaming giant never 'notified' them.
Thulhu's cousin, Errol Lindsey, was 19 when he disappeared from a Milwaukee mall and would become Dahmer's 11th known victim. He was reportedly lured to Dahmer's apartment to pose for nude photos.
'I’m not telling anyone what to watch, I know true crime media is huge [right now], but if you’re actually curious about the victims, my family (the Isbell’s) are pissed about this show,' Thulhu wrote on Twitter.
'It’s retraumatizing over and over again, and for what? How many movies/shows/documentaries do we need?'

A quick Google search also displays a wide variety of other documentaries that have been released since the sensational case hit courtrooms.
Thulhu went on to say Netflix didn't even 'notify' the family of the creation of the new hit series, because it's 'all public record, so they don’t have to notify (or pay!) anyone.'
