Jeffrey Dahmer: Who Was He?

Between 1978 and 1991, American serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer murdered 17 men and boys. Over

Over the course of more than 13 years, Dahmer tracked down his victims, who were primarily Black males, at gay bars, shopping centers, and bus stops. He then lured them home with offers of money or s3x, gave them alcohol that was drugged, and strangled them. He would perform sexual actions on the corpses after which he would dismember them and dispose of them, frequently saving the skulls or genitalia as mementos. He routinely captured his victims in various phases of the murder process on camera, allowing him to later recall and relive each crime. In 1991, Dahmer was apprehended and given 16 life sentences. In 1994, fellow prisoner Christopher Scarver killed him.
