Nancy’s interview comes as Netflix’s Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story has broken streaming records.
Created by Ryan Murphy, the show has become Netflix’s ninth most-popular English-language TV series of all time, in the span of just two weeks.
Monster has been considered for 496.1 million hours to this point, with not less than 56 million households who’ve watched all 10 episodes of the collection in accordance with Variety.
Who is Jeffrey Dahmer?
Dahmer was convicted of 16 murders in 1992, and sentenced to 16 life sentences in prison.
He was bludgeoned to death with a metal bar in November of 1994 by Christopher Scarver, another inmate at the Columbia Correctional Institution in Portage, Wisconsin.
The gruesome story of Dahmer has past been chronicled in the 2002 movie Dahmer, in which Jeremy Renner played the titular role; as well as 2017’s My Friend Dahmer, in which Ross Lynch played a teen version of the nascent serial killer.
The streamer measures the popularity of their shows by counting hours viewed in the first 28 days, meaning the show still has 16 days to gain an even higher spot on the chart.
Starring Evan Peters as the serial killer known as the Milwaukee Cannibal, the show has held the number one spot on the English-language TV chart since its release, and is also the second most watched English-language series in a week ever, only beat out by season 4 of Stranger Things.
It retells the story of Dahmer from the perspective of his victims, and explores major mistakes Wisconsin police made in handling the probe of the notorious mass murderer, who made national headlines for acts of cannibalism and necrophilia.
The show features at least 10 incidents in which authorities nearly took Dahmer into custody, but didn’t, extending the twisted crime spree.
However, Ms Glass said a degree of poetic licence has been afforded its writers in order to bring his gruesome story to the screen.
While Monster depicts Dahmer’s father Lionel as a concerned dad who believed his son was an alcoholic loser, Glass said this simply wasn’t true.
‘The father never thought anything was wrong,’ said Glass, adding that Lionel was an ‘odd’ man who perhaps wouldn’t have noticed red flags in Jeffrey’s behaviour.
‘So I do want to say that while the Netflix show is fantastic, it’s a scripted show. It’s not meant to be a documentary,’ she added.
Glass revealed the show’s storyline about Dahmer’s neighbour Glenda Cleveland was also fictional.
In the series, Cleveland is portrayed as Dahmer’s next-door neighbour in the Oxford apartments and has several troubling encounters with him.

Cleveland makes multiple complaints to the police about a foul smell emanating from Dahmer’s apartment, but her calls go ignored because she is black.
In reality, Cleveland lived in a different building and never met Dahmer.
‘That didn’t happen,’ Glass said of Cleveland’s portrayal, adding: ‘There was a neighbour who noticed a smell, but didn’t complain.’
Cleveland did, however, make several attempts to alert local police and the FBI about Dahmer’s behaviour after her niece ran into one of his victims, Konerak Sinthasomphone, trying to escape his apartment building.

Glass also said the detail about Dahmer’s father Lionel teaching him how to dissect animals as a child was unlikely to have happened.
‘I’m not sure that’s true,’ said Ms Glass, who developed a friendship with Dahmer’s parents in the ’90s.
In the series, Lionel and his son are seen driving around looking for roadkill to dissect in their garage.
Lionel, who worked as a research chemist, is seen teaching his son how to slice up the dead animals as a demented form of fatherly bonding.
In reality, Lionel never taught his son about dissecting, discarding and preserving animal parts, and only found out his son performed these grotesque acts on humans after he was arrested.
Ms Glass additionally mentioned the element about Dahmer’s father Lionel instructing him dissect animals as a toddler was unlikely to have occurred. (Pictured: actor Dallas Roberts as Lionel Dahmer and Molly Ringwald as Shari Dahmer, the killer’s stepmother, within the Netflix present Monster)
