One of the lesser-known figures brought back to the spotlight is Glenda Cleveland, Dahmer's neighbor whose persistent efforts to stop him were reportedly ignored by police.

The police and Dahmer walked Sinthasomphone back to Dahmer's apartment, where he was murdered shortly afterward.

"We tried to give the policemen our names, but he just told us to butt out," Smith told the Associated Press at the time of Dahmer's arrest.

Unlike in the Netflix adaption, Cleveland was not present when her daughter and niece found Sinthasomphone but, she made repeated attempts at calling the police only to be rebuffed?

In a now infamous phone conversation, Cleveland can be heard inquiring to a police officer about investigating Dahmer.

According to USA Today, after she discovered missing person signs for Konerak Sinthasomphone, Cleveland repeatedly called the police — even the FBI — but no one ever took her call.

Dahmer killed five more victims after Cleveland attempted to alert the authorities.

After being convinced by Dahmer that he and Sinthasomphone were just having a domestic dispute, the three officers escorted the two back to Dahmer's apartment.

After public outcry following Dahmer's arrest, two of the officers, Balcerzak and Gabrish, were fired, according to a report from the Washington Post at the time.

In 1995, The city of Milwaukee agreed to pay a settlement of $850,000 to the family of Sinthasomphone, according to the Spokesman-Review.

According to Decider, both men were awarded back pay of $55,000 each and in 2005 Balcerzak was elected as president of the Milwaukee Police Association.

Following Dahmer's arrest five months after Cleveland contacted the police, she was given formal honors by the Common Council and the County Board and celebrated by local women's groups and even...the Milwaukee Police Department

In spite of the attention, Cleveland just wanted to "get back to normal." It was a statement she had repeated to many of the reporters that showed up at her door asking about Dahmer
