Ryan Murphy’s television brand is built on American horror and crime stories, and nothing is more gruesome than The Crimes of Jeffrey Dahmer.
Murphy and his co-creator Ian Brennan turned their attention to the infamous serial killer who murdered 17 men and boys between 1978 and 1991 in the new Netflix series “Dahmer.”
In the Netflix miniseries, Evan Peters, who has appeared in nearly every season of “American Horror Story,” plays Dahmer.
Dahmer’s crimes included cannibalism and necrophilia, which are not for the faint of heart, and his victims were mostly people of color, with nine being black. But what happened to Jeffrey Dahmer today?
JEFFREY DAHMER IS WHO?
Jeffrey Dahmer, also known as the Milwaukee Cannibal or the Milwaukee Monster, was born on May 21, 1960.
From 1978 to 1991, he sought out young men, mostly African Americans, in gay bars, shopping malls, or bus stops and enticed them to his house with promises of sex or money.
Jeffrey Dahmer’s fascination with the dead began at a young age. He saw his father remove animal bones from under the family home when he was four years old, and he was always delighted to hear the sounds they made.
He began by collecting large insects in jars and then, as a teenager, began collecting animal carcasses from roadside ditches.
Jeffrey Dahmer realized he was gay when he reached puberty, but he kept it to himself. Then he fantasized about being in a relationship where he had complete control over his partner. These were gradually incorporated into the dissection.
JEFFREY DAHMER: WHO IS HE TODAY?
In 1991, he was apprehended. So, on February 15, 1992, Jeffrey Dahmer was convicted of 15 of the 16 Wisconsin murders he committed and sentenced to life in prison for each of them.
Jeffrey Dahmer, on the other hand, died today and is no longer in prison.
Jeffrey Dahmer died on November 28, 1994, while incarcerated at the Columbia Correctional Institution in Portage, Wisconsin.
Corrections officers discovered him on the floor of the gymnasium bathrooms around 8:10 a.m., covered in his blood and suffering from severe injuries to his head and face.
Even though he was still alive and breathing at the time, he died an hour later after being rushed to a nearby hospital.
Jeffrey Dahmer died as a result of severe head trauma caused by being hit in the head and face with a 20-inch metal bar.
According to reports, his head was repeatedly bashed against the wall during the assault.
WHO DID JEFFREY DAHMER KILL?
Christopher J. Scarver, a convicted murderer, and inmate at Columbia Correctional Institution were responsible for the murder of Jeffrey Dahmer.
That morning, he, Jeffrey, and then another inmate, Jesse Anderson, were assigned retail work, which required them to clean the prison gymnasium’s restrooms and locker rooms.
Christopher used a metal bar to hit the other two men after officers left the three men alone for about 20 minutes.
When another officer asked him why he wasn’t working when he returned to his room earlier, he confessed to the murders and said, “God told me to do it.” Jesse Anderson as well as Jeffrey Dahmer are no longer alive.
However, in 2015, he publicly stated that the murders of Jeffrey and Jesse were the result of a previous confrontation in which the two men provoked him and made fun of him.
