Jeffrey Dahmer is the most recent name when it comes to psycho killers. This most brutal American serial killer and sex offender, also known as Milwaukee Monster or Milwaukee Cannibal, was born on 21 May 1960.
Between 1978 and 1991, Dahmer committed 17 horrible male murders. His method of operation included dismemberment, rape, cannibalism, necrophilia, and permanent preservation of victims body parts or skeleton parts.
Dahmer was found to be mentally healthy during his trial despite being diagnosed with Schizotypal personality disorder (StPD), borderline personality disorder (BPD), and a psychotic disorder. However, on February 17, 1992, he was sentenced to fifteen sentences of life imprisonment after being found guilty of fifteen of the sixteen murders he had committed in Wisconsin. Later on, he was given a sixteenth term of life imprisonment for another murder committed in Ohio.
On November 28, 1994, fellow prisoner Christopher Scarver brutally beat Dahmer to death at the Columbia Correctional Institution in Portage, Wisconsin.
FBI File Reveals Polaroid Collection of Jeffrey Dahmer’s Gruesome Murders
Jeffrey Dahmer targeted and killed 17 men, then dismembered, had sex with and photographed their dead bodies. He collected disturbing mementos from the murders and Polaroid pictures, which were only discovered after his arrest in 1991.
On the evening of July 22, 1991, police searched Dahmer’s apartment, number 213, at 924 North 25th Street in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, after his final victim, Tracy Edwards, managed to escape while still wearing a handcuff on one wrist.
When police entered the apartment, they discovered the knife in Dahmer’s room along with the handcuffs’ key.
An open drawer had about 80 Polaroid pictures of Dahmer’s victims that were posed, naked, and dismembered. In 1994, The American Journal of Forensic Medicine and Pathology published that Dahmer snapped the photos as he “wanted to keep them as mementos to keep him company.”
Heads that had been separated from their bodies, bleached skulls, and a 57-gallon acid vat used to liquefy flesh were found by police.
Moreover, prepackaged body parts to eat of 11 different people were also found in his fridge.

Dahmer’s Childhood to First Kill
Most stories indicate that Dahmer had a typical upbringing. As he grew older, he became introverted and uncommunicative. When he entered puberty, he started to exhibit little to no interest in hobbies or social interaction, instead choosing to use excessive drinking and animal autopsy examination as his forms of pleasure.
He continued to drink throughout high school, but it didn’t stop him from obtaining his 1978 graduation. Just three weeks later, the 18-year-old committed his first murder.
After his parents got divorced, Dahman was left alone in the family home. He took the opportunity to turn the dark thoughts that had been growing in his mind into action.
He picked up Steven Hicks, a hitchhiker, and offered to take him back to his father’s place so they could drink beer. However, when Hicks made the decision to go home, Dahmer slammed him in the back of his head with a 10-pound dumbbell.
Later, he dissected, crushed, and scattered the unnoticeable remains all through his backyard. Afterward, he admitted to killing Hicks just because he wanted him to stay. Nine years had passed before he killed someone again.
