Dahmer was born in 1960, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to a teletype machine trainer and chemist.

There are conflicting reports as to whether Dahmer was neglected as a child or if he was loved, but there seems to be no doubt that he was from a broken home. His mother suffered from depression and attempted suicide, and his father was away studying for most of his childhood. Dahmer’s parents eventually divorced when he was 18 years old.

Dahmer was a quiet child who underwent surgery for a double hernia at the age of three. The family moved to Ohio when Dahmer was six, and his younger brother David was born.

Dahmer was interested in dead animals, specifically animal bones, from an early age – something he believes began when he saw his father removing animal bones from under their house. He began collecting insects and skeletons of small animals, such as squirrels, and keeping them in jars of formaldehyde. His father showed him how to bleach and preserve animal bones, and Dahmer began collecting road slaughter so he could dissect them and add more bones to his collection.

In high school, Dahmer was an outcast. He drank heavily and described alcohol as a “medicine” to his classmates. While he was believed by teachers to have good academic potential, his grades were average. Having previously been quiet, he began throwing fake spells and making fun of people with cerebral palsy.

In his early teens, Dahmer had a brief affair with another teenage boy, but he did not tell his parents that he was gay. He later admitted that he fantasized about controlling a submissive male partner, and that these fantasies began to dissect.

Damer crimes

Dahmer committed his first murder three weeks after graduating from high school in 1978. One day in June, 18-year-old Stephen Mark Hicks picked him up, lured him to his house for “a little beer,” and hit him with batons. dumbbells; Dahmer then strangled Hicks to death, stripped him of his clothes, masturbated, dissected the body and buried the remains in a shallow grave in his back garden. He later dug up the body so he could dissolve it in acid and crush and scatter the bones.

Shortly thereafter, Dahmer joined the US Army for a few years. Keep drinking a lot. In 1981, he was laid off, and in the mid-1980s, in Milwaukee, he began frequenting gay bathrooms where he drugged and assaulted men. In the late 1980s he committed a second murder, this time to a man who brought him back to the hotel. Then he began carrying out assaults and murders in his grandmother’s house.

Dahmer’s grandmother asked him out, in large part because of his drinking, his habit of bringing back young men late at night and the stench coming from the basement and garage—where Dahmer stored and disposed of his victims. He moved into an apartment in Milwaukee and the murders and dismemberments continued into the ’90s.

Many of his later murders included necrophilia, cannibalism, and permanent skeleton preservation.

Dahmer’s conviction

Although he was arrested several times in his life, once for coming into contact with a young boy, authorities only discovered Dahmer’s murderous activities when he was arrested after one of his victims escaped in 1991. Running down a Milwaukee street with a pair of handcuffs dangling from one wrist, Tracy Edwards told the police that Dahmer was trying to kill him.

That day, in Dahmer’s apartment, the police found body parts and severed heads in the refrigerator, freezer, filing cabinet, and kettle.

In 1992, Dahmer was imprisoned for life. He was unable to convince the jury that cannibalism and necrophilia were the result of insanity, despite being diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, schizotypal personality disorder and psychotic disorder. He was sentenced to 15 consecutive life sentences and told that he would never qualify for parole.

His trial included some of the ugliest evidence ever heard in an American courtroom. Testifying in court, Dahmer said, “I never wanted freedom. Frankly, I wanted death for myself. I knew I was sick or evil or both.”

“Doctors have told me about my illness and now I feel some peace. I know how much damage I have caused. I feel very bad for what I have done to those poor families.”

Dahmer was later sentenced to 16 life sentences for one additional murder in Ohio in 1978.

Dahmer’s death

On November 28, 1994, Dahmer was beaten to death by Christopher Scarver, a colleague at Columbia Correctional Facility in Portage, Wisconsin.

More than 20 years after the accident, Scarver spoke for the first time about why he killed Dahmer.

Scarver said he hit Dahmer twice in the head with a metal rod after becoming alarmed by the killer, who claimed he would take out severed limbs from prison food and flood them with packets of ketchup as blood.

“He’d put them where people were,” Scarver said. New York Post.

“He crossed the line with some people – prisoners and prison staff. Some people in prison were repentant – but he wasn’t one of them.”
