Dahmer: The statements of Rita Isbell

Her hair was like mine, she wore the same clothes. That’s why it felt like I was reliving it all over again. She gave me back all the emotions I felt at the epoch “.
Isbell reported that Netflix never contacted her about the miniseries and criticized the way the company speculated on the tragedy. “I feel like Netflix should have asked us if we were sorry or how we felt knowing they were doing it. They didn’t ask me for anything. They just did,” she continued. “I could also understand if they gave part of the proceeds to the children of the victims … The victims have children and grandchildren. If the show compensated them in some way, it wouldn’t seem so gullible and careless. It’s sad that they are simply making money from this tragedy. This is pure greed. “
