Edmund Emil Kemper II or simply ‘E.E.’ played a very important role in young Edmund Kempers life. E.E. himself being exceptionally tall, he served in WW2 and later went on to provide a rather comftable life for his family with a job as electrician.
But he and Eds mother Clarnell had a stormy relationship, she being described as the more dominat part of the relationship, Clarnell would complain about money and critize E.E. about his soft handling of Ed and his stricter attitude toward his two daughters.
Due to this situation at home E.E. would do anything to get away, even taking an employment in testing nuclear weapons in the South Pacific.
He wasn’t part of Edmunds formative years and left his son fully to his abusive mothers ‘care’,
Ed would describe Clarnell as “a very mean, controlling, impossible to please person, who was on his back, basically the day he was born”.
In 1957 Edmund Emil II left the family and would settle in Los Angeles to remarry and have a stepson.
By age 15 young Ed would go on to search for his father who would take him in. By the time Ed realized he had to share his father with the family E.E. had established he became jealous and hostile.
After one month E.E. sent his son back to his mother. Continuing the cycle of Eds continuous rejection, until in 1964 Ed was sent to live with his grandparents, where he shot and killed them both.
