Jeffrey Dahmer was born in Milwaukee in 1960.  When he was a child he took an interest in chemistry and mutilating animals, he was also reportedly molested by a boy at the age of eight.

He joined the US Army in 1979 and got stationed in Germany.  In 1981 he was discharged for disorderly behaviour and alcoholism.  While Dahmer was serving in Germany there were three unsolved murders near his base.

When Dahmer returned to Milwaukee he was soon arrested for exhibitionism.  In 1988 he was sentenced to 10 months jail for fondling a minor.

Upon his release from prison he got a job at a local candy factory and rented a small apartment which later became the famous apartment 213.  Dahmer’s neighbours soon complained of an overpowering bad smell and the noise pollution that emitted from his power saw.  Dahmer’s excuses was that his refrigerator broke down and the meat spoiled and that he was building book-cases.

In 1991 police responded to a neighbours call who discovered a 14-year-old Asian boy, Konerak Sinthasomphone, bleeding and naked who had escaped from Dahmer.  This incident was ignored by police who called it "a homosexual lovers spat". Dahmer killed the boy later that night.

Another one of Dahmers victims, Tracy Edwards, escaped and flagged down a police car.  The police went back to Dahmer’s apartment where they discovered photos of dismembered bodies, a head in the refrigerator, a kettle on the stove full of hands and male genitalia, a heart in the fridge with the words 'to eat later' carved in it and the list goes on.

Dahmer admitted killing a number of young Asian and African-American boys.  After getting his victims drunk or drugged Dahmer photographed, strangled and dismembered his victims.  Dahmer committed acts of necrophilia on his victims and was also a cannibal, this was evident by no other food in Dahmer's apartment except the body parts of his victims.  Dahmer had killed a total of 17 males.

In 1992 Dahmer was found guilty of the murders and sentenced to death.  While waiting on death row Dahmer was murdered by a fellow inmate and was found with a mop handle stuck in his eye.
