Dustin Duthie is a Canadian man from the city of Calgary. He grew up in his family home in Calgary along with his stepfather, Alan Pennylegion, mother, Shawn Boshuk, siblings, and half-siblings.

As per Investigation Discovery, Duthie's stepbrother, Adam Pennylegion, felt that Duthie had a short temper right from his childhood days. There were several instances during Duthie's childhood wherein he displayed violent behavior, including one where he threw a lighter that wounded Alan's eyelids after the latter teased him about some drawings that he'd found.

His relationship with his family became even more strained after he became an adult, especially with his stepfather, whom he'd threatened with violence. According to Investigation Discovery, Dustin had been using stereoids and training as a boxer, for which he'd worked out extensively. He reportedly dated a woman named Taylor Toller for five years.
