About Jeffrey Dahmer in brief
Jeffrey Dahmer was born May 21, 1960, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, schizotypal personality disorder and a psychotic disorder. Dahmer committed the murder and dismemberment of 17 men and boys from 1978 to 1991. Many of his later murders involved necrophilia, cannibalism, and the permanent preservation of body parts. In his early teens, Dahmer had a brief relationship with another teenage boy, although they had never had intercourse. By the time he reached puberty, he discovered he was gay; he did not tell his parents. On November 28, 1994, he was beaten to death by Christopher Scarver, a fellow inmate at the Columbia Correctional Institution in Portage, Wisconsin, after serving a 16th term of life imprisonment for an additional homicide committed in Ohio in 1978. He is survived by his wife, Joyce, and their two children, Jeffrey and David, who were born in 1968 and 1989, respectively, in Doylestown and Bath Township, Ohio. He also leaves behind a son, Lionel, who was a chemistry student at Marquette University and a daughter, Jennifer, who went on to become a successful businesswoman. He died of natural causes at the age of 56. He had a long and violent criminal record, including 15 counts of first-degree murder and 16 counts of second-degree sexual assault. He committed his crimes between 1978 and 1991, and was sentenced to life in prison on February 15, 1992, with a minimum term of 15 years.
He served 15 years for each of the 16 murders he had committed in Wisconsin; he was also sentenced to 15 years in prison for the additional homicide in Ohio, which he committed in 1978; he served 16 years in 1992 and 1994, and died in 1994, aged 56. Dahmmer was known as the “Milwaukee Monster” and the “Cannibal of Milwaukee” because of the number of bodies he dismembered and preserved in his possession. He has been called the “Wisconsin Serial Killer” and “The Milwaukee Cannibal” by some media outlets. The Milwaukee Monster was convicted of 15 murders and sentenced to death in 1992; he died in prison in 1994; he had served 14 years of his 15-year sentence. He left behind a wife and two children; his children are now in their 20s and 30s, and his wife has a daughter and a son-in-law, both of whom are in their late 20s. He never had any children of his own. He became fascinated with dead animals at an early age. He collected large insects, such as dragonflies and butterflies, in jars. He later collected animal carcasses from the roadside, occasionally accompanied by one or more friends, and dismemvised these animals either at home or in nearby woodland. He stored the parts in jars in the family’s toolshed, explaining that he was curious as to how animals \”fitted together\”. Dahmer once decapitated the carcass of a dog before nailing the body to a tree and impaling the skull on a wooden cross in woods near his house.
