They Just Revealed The Truth About The Man Who Killed Jeffrey Dahmer…

Serial killers often prey on members of vulnerable communities, which is highlighted in Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story.

Jeffrey Dahmer, one of the world’s most notorious serial killers, murdered 17 people between 1978 and 1991. How did he go undetected for over a decade? Well, no one knows (besides the fact that his neighbor literally warned police about him with no prevail).

When a serial killer is finally caught, investigations into their crimes reveal much about the society that allowed their prolific offenses to occur. It is seldom the case that a murderer is some sort of criminal mastermind, perfectly covering their tracks to avoid detection. Rather, a combination of external factors allows them to leave such staggering body counts in their wake.

A serial killer might prey on overlooked communities or seek targets that lack familial connections, hoping that a lackluster police presence in an underserved area or the absence of concerned family members will allow them to kill without scrutiny.

Dahmer, who frequently lured victims to his apartment with the promise of money, targeted people who moved from place to place — a fact that also left reporters with scant details of their lives.

Dahmer should have been brought to justice long before his arrest in 1991, and any number of prior incidents could have kept him off the streets and his victims safe. However, Dahmer’s lenient sentencing for assaulting an underage boy makes the serial killer continues his gruesome acts.

Prior to his arrest for murder, Dahmer was made to spend a year in prison after he sexually assaulted a 14-year-old boy, Somsack Sinthasomphone. Dahmer had already killed several of his victims by this point, but a longer sentence, coupled with more thorough follow-ups on his actions post-prison, could have potentially brought his crimes to life earlier.

During the trial, the judge remarked that Dahmer reminded him of his grandson, which led him to allow Dahmer work release during his incarceration, as well as keep the nature of his crime hidden from his employer.

More details of this gruesome murderer’s story from AWM:

Dahmer’s final victim was Tracy Edwards. He lured Edwards into his abode after getting permission to take naked photos of Edwards. However, Edwards knew something was wrong when Dahmer handcuffed him. Edwards escaped and told police about Dahmer’s devious activities. Dahmer was arrested and connected to other murder victims. While on trial, Dahmer confessed to all fifteen charges against him, pleading guilty. He received fifteen life sentences plus seventy years in prison.

However, Dahmer would not live out his days in prison. Christopher Scarver saw to that.

Like the killer, Scarver was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He was an inmate at the Columbia Correctional Institution, which is located in Portage, Wisconsin. Scarver was in prison for murder after he allegedly killed his boss for not paying him the money he was promised.

Scarver noticed Dahmer in prison and knew who he was and how he targeted Black men for his crimes. When Scarver and Dahmer were together, Scarver claimed that Dahmer poked him in the back, so he used a 20-inch metal bar to beat Dahmer senselessly.

Scarver cornered Dahmer and said, “I asked him if he did those things ’cause I was fiercely disgusted.”

Dahmer was taken to a hospital, but he could not survive the beating her received from his fellow inmate.

Scarver suspected the prison guards left him alone with Dahmer so the serial killer could receive some prison justice since the law went too easy on him because he was white. Scarver has since spent his time doing more positive things, like releasing poetry in 2015 entitled God Seed: Poetry of Christopher J. Scarver.

In an interview with Inside Edition in 1993, Dahmer admitted, “I always knew that it was wrong. The first killing was not planned.”

Dahmer would have sex with some of the victims’ corpses, keep body parts in jars, and even practice cannibalism.

By the time police caught Dahmer, he had killed 17 men and boys, including:

  • Steven Hicks, 19
  • Steven Tuomi, 24
  • Jamie Doxtator, 14
  • Richard Guerrero, 25
  • Anthony Lee Sears, 26
  • Raymond Lamont Smith, 33
  • Edward W. Smith, 27
  • Ernest Miller, 22
  • David Thomas, 23
  • Curtis Straughter, 19

  • Anthony Hughes, 31
  • Konerak Sinthasomphone, 14
  • Matt Turner, 20
  • Jeremiah “Jeremy” Weinberger, 23
  • Oliver Lacy, 23
