U.S. serial killer and s*x offender Jeffrey Lionel Dahmer (May 21, 1960 – November 28, 1994) killed and dismembered seventeen male victims between 1978 and 1991. He was also known as the Milwaukee Cannibal and the Milwaukee Monster. Later killings often included necrophilia, cannibalism, and the preservation of body parts, usually the bones.
Dahmer was determined to be legally competent despite being diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, schizotypal personality disorder, and psychotic disorder(famous people with borderline personality disorder). On February 17, 1992, he was found guilty of fifteen of the sixteen murders he was accused of in Wisconsin and given fifteen consecutive life sentences.
After committing another murder in Ohio in 1978, Dahmer received his sixteenth life sentence. Christopher Scarver, an inmate at the Columbia Correctional Institution in Portage, Wisconsin, was responsible for Dahmer’s death by beating on November 28, 1994.
On May 21, 1960, Dahmer was born to Joyce Annette (née Flint), a teletype machine instructor, and Lionel Herbert (Herb) Dahmer (a Marquette University chemistry student and later a research chemist) in Milwaukee, Wisconsin; he was their first of two sons. Joyce Dahmer had Norwegian and Irish ancestry, while her brother Lionel had German and Welsh.
Evidence suggests Dahmer had a rough start to life, with reports of being neglected as a baby. However, some reports claim that both Dahmer’s parents lavished attention on him as a baby and toddler. However, his mother was known to be anxious, eager for attention and sympathy, and combative with her husband and their neighbors.
Lionel’s academic work kept him from the family as Dahmer started first grade. When he was there, his hypochondriac, depressed wife expected constant attention and spent more and more time in bed. One time she used Equanil in an attempt to end her life.
Consequently, neither parent spent much time with their kid, and he grew up feeling “unsure of the solidity of the family,” recalling the high levels of tension and frequent disagreements between them when he was little.
Formerly an “energetic and cheerful boy,” Dahmer became noticeably depressed after undergoing double hernia surgery just before his fourth birthday. Dahmer was viewed as shy and quiet in primary school; one teacher recalled seeing traces of abandonment in him due to his father’s absence and his mother’s illnesses, which worsened when she was pregnant with their second child. Dahmer did, surprisingly, have a few pals back when he was in elementary school.

Jeffrey Dahmer’s Career
Dahmer was an outcast as a student at Revere High School. By 14, he was consuming beer and strong alcohol during the day, hiding it in his school jacket. When a classmate asked why he drank Scotch in history class, he said it was “my medicine.” Dahmer was mostly uncommunicative but polite, clever, and had average grades as a freshman. He played tennis and band in high school.
Dahmer didn’t inform his parents he was gay in adolescence. In his early teens, he dated another boy but never slept together. By Dahmer’s subsequent admission, he began fantasizing about dominating and managing a subordinate male partner in his early to mid-teens. His masturbatory fantasies eventually focused on chests and torsos. These fantasies morphed into the dissection.
When he was 16, Dahmer fantasized about knocking out a handsome guy jogging and s*xually exploiting him. Dahmer once hid in bushes with a baseball bat for this man, but he didn’t pass by. Dahmer later admitted this was his first effort to subdue someone.
Dahmer was known as a class clown at RHS, where he conducted pranks such as bleating and imitating epileptic episodes or cerebral palsy. Dahmer sometimes performed for booze money. 1978 Revere High School yearbook photo of Dahmer. Dahmer’s grades dropped by 1977. His parents engaged an ineffective tutor.
In the same year, his parents sought marriage counseling. They kept fighting. Lionel and Joyce divorced amicably after Lionel uncovered Joyce’s infidelity in September 1977. Lionel moved out of the house in 1978 and temporarily lived in a motel.
Dahmer graduated in 1978. A teacher saw Dahmer consuming alcohol near the school parking lot weeks before graduation. Dahmer told the teacher he had “a lot of problems” at home and that the guidance counselor knew about them. Joyce and David moved to Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, with relatives that spring. Dahmer was 18 and still at home. In 1978, Dahmer’s parents divorced. Joyce received child custody and alimony.
Jeffrey Dahmer’s Death
Dahmer escaped his cell at 6:00 a.m. on November 28, 1994, to complete his daily work detail. Two other inmates, Jesse Anderson and Christopher Scarver accompanied him. The three spent around 20 minutes alone in the jail gym showers without supervision. Dahmer was found at 8:10 a.m. on the floor of the gym restrooms with significant head wounds; he had been bludgeoned about the head and face with a 20-inch (51-centimeter) metal bar.
The assault had also included multiple blows to the charge, which he had taken by hitting the wall. Despite being brought there while still conscious, Dahmer was confirmed dead at a local hospital. Two days after being assaulted with the same implement, Anderson passed away.
Scarver told authorities he had struck Dahmer with the metal bar while Dahmer was cleaning a staff locker room and attacked Anderson when Anderson was cleaning a cellblock’s inmate locker room. Scarver was convicted of murder in 1990 and served a life sentence. Scarver claims Dahmer kept quiet while being assaulted.
Scarver, who was assumed to be schizophrenic, attacked both men and then went to his cell to tell a guard: “The Lord commanded me to go forward with it. Tragically, both Jesse Anderson and Jeffrey Dahmer have passed away.” Scarver insisted he had not plotted the murders in advance but later told police he had hidden the 20-inch iron bar he used to kill both men under his clothes.
Dahmer’s mother Joyce gave a fiery statement to the press once she heard of her son’s death: “Is everyone content now? Is it satisfactory to everyone that he has been bludgeoned to death now?” Although it appears that the majority of Dahmer’s victims’ relatives are relieved by his death, their reactions are not uniform.
The prosecutor who tried the case against Dahmer warned against making Scarver a folk hero, saying that even though Dahmer was a monster, his death was still murder. Scarver received two extra life sentences for the 1995 killings of Dahmer and Anderson on May 15th.
Dahmer requested that his body be cremated and that no services be held in his honor. Dahmer’s parents were given equal shares of his ashes after his cremation in September 1995.
