Anouke Sinthasomphone’s younger brother, Konerak Sinthasomphone, was also named Sinthasomphone. In 1991, he was the victim of a vicious assault at the hands of serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer.
Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, a new series on Netflix, delves into the life and crimes of one of the most notorious serial murderers to have ever operated in the United States. It was made available to the public on September 21st, 2022.
Where Is Konerak Sinthasomphone Brother Anouke Sinthasomphone Now?
Anouke Sinthasomphone, the brother of Konerak Sinthasomphone, spoke to the media after the two brothers were assaulted by Jeffrey Dahmer. On May 27, 1991, Dahmer summoned the young girl, then just 14 years old, to his apartment to pose for pictures.
After Dahmer had taken images of the youngster while he was just wearing his underwear, he later gave the boy narcotics. After that, Dahmer drilled a hole in the youngster’s skull and injected hydrochloric acid into his frontal lobe. The boy died shortly after that.
He remained there for a while next to Sintasomphone when she was unconscious in order to drink. And after a while, he reportedly exited the apartment while looking for further sources of alcoholic beverages.
When he got back to his apartment, he saw Sinthasomphone sitting outside on the street naked, surrounded by three perplexed women. He had left his clothing inside his apartment. After viewing the boy, the three female witnesses, Sandra Smith, Tina Spivey, and Nicole Childress, called the emergency services.
When Officers Gabrish and Balcerzak arrived to the scene, they found Dahmer standing close to Sinthasomphone. After being questioned about the incident, Dhamer revealed that the boy in question was really his 19-year-old partner who was in an inebriated state at the time.
The officers let Dahmer take the boy inside his apartment, citing the fact that it was a domestic situation. Despite the fact that one of the women tried to intercede since she had seen the injuries on the boy, the officers did not intervene. Jeffrey administered a further injection of hydrochloric acid into Konerak’s head. His head was preserved in the freezer while the rest of his body was dismembered and burned.
The family had not only encountered the serial killer once, but twice during their ordeal. Less than two years before to Konerak’s death, Jeffrey assaulted Somsack Sinthasomphone, one of Konerak’s brothers.
At that time, Anouke Sinthasomphone had already reached the age of 27. While Sounthone is the name of his father, Somdy is the name of his mother. The family had a total of eight children: five boys and three girls. Following Konerak’s passing, the family now includes four sons of their own.
They fled Laos for the United States in March 1979 because the communists there threatened to seize their rice plantation, which was located in a village close to the capital city of Vientiane. They arrived in the United States.
The elder children had already become acclimated to American culture and even have a native-like command of the English language. According to what was written in the New York Times, several of the family’s oldest children had previously had jobs as welders, machinists, or employees on assembly lines by that point.
Anouke had previously given interviews to the press, but his whereabouts in the present day are still unknown. It’s possible that he’s in his 50s now.
