Glenda Cleveland, Jeffrey Dahmer’s Childhood Neighbour

Glenda Cleveland


Glenda Cleveland is an American citizen who worked in a data entry position in the city of Milwaukee while living with her 17-year-old daughter, Sandra Smith. She lived in an adjacent building and in reality, Dahmer’s actual neighbor was another Black woman named Pamela Bass.

When her daughter and niece discovered Sinthasomphone, Cleveland was not there. She made several tries to contact the authorities, but she was informed that they would not investigate Dahmer. Cleveland can be heard asking a police officer if the police were going to look into Dahmer in a now notorious phone conversation.

Cleveland: “Yeah, uh, what happened? I mean my daughter and my niece witnessed what was going on. Was anything done about the situation? Do you need their names or information or anything from them?”

Bass was the one Dahmer would offer sandwiches, she told interviewers in The Jeffery Dahmer Files. In the show, however, it seems Bass was partially erased, and elements of her personality were apparently written into Cleveland’s character.

Where Is Glenda Cleveland Now?

It is not idea where is Glenda Cleveland today. She might be shifted from there. The sources say that after the arrest of Dahmer, she used to live in the 25th Street apartment until 2009 and then moved to an apartment which was less than a mile away from there.

According to USA Today, Glenda Cleveland was one of the nine children and she was raised on a farm by her parents who always stressed on telling the truth and helping others.

In the show called The Jeffery Dahmer Files, it seems that Bass was partially erased and some of her characteristics were written into Cleveland’s character.
