Jeffrey Dahmer killed seventeen men between 1978 and 1991. Most of his victims were young, homosexual or bi-sexual black men, whom Dahmer subjected to sexual assault prior to murdering them.
He achieved notoriety after his arrest, following the discovery of his victims’ decaying bodies in acid vats in his apartment, including severed heads in his refrigerator and other human body parts around his home, an altar of candles, and human skulls. Dahmer took photos of each stage of his victim’s death, including the sexually explicit acts he performed on his victims at each stage.
The explanation offered by Dahmer himself was that he was attempting to remove free will from his victims to create an "automaton", compliant to his wishes and his sexual desires.
Many people were later outraged to find out that police returned one of Dahmer’s naked, dazed, bleeding, still alive victims, Laotian teenager Konerak Sinthasomphone, to Dahmer after he had escaped. Dahmer told officers that Konerak was his adult homosexual lover, who was 19, and had had too much to drink. The boy was only 14 years old.
In 1991, another man, Tracy Edwards, was able to escape from Dahmer’s apartment and flag down a police car. Police were led back to Dahmer’s apartment, where the remains of eleven victims were found.
After being charged with fifteen counts of murder, he entered a plea of guilty but insane. During the trial the list of his deviances were catalogued and included: Skulls in locker, cannibalism, sexual urges, drilling holes into the skulls of his living victims, necrophilia, and drinking alcohol all the time, trying to create a shrine from human remains, lobotomies, defleshing, taxidermy and going to grave yards. A court in Milwaukee sentenced Dahmer to fifteen consecutive life sentences, which required a minimum of 936 years imprisonment.
In prison he was paired up with two highly dangerous men on a work detail: Jesse Anderson, a white man who had murdered his wife and blamed it on a black man, and Christopher Scarver, a black delusional schizophrenic who thought he was the son of God, who was in for first-degree murder.
The morning of November 28, 1994, these three men were left alone to do their work. Twenty minutes later, the guards came back to find Dahmer’s head crushed, and Anderson’s fatally injured body nearby. Scarver claimed that God had told him to murder these men. Jeffrey Dahmer was pronounced dead at 9:11 A.M.
