Relatives of some of the victims of serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer give him a piece of their minds in this video, which was recorded at his trial, which lasted two weeks. Born in West Allis, Wisconsin, he murdered 17 young men (his victims were between the ages of 14 and 36) from 1978 and 1991, although most of the murders took place after 1987.
Although he was arrested for drugging and sexually abusing a 13 year old boy in 1988, became a registered sex offender and sentenced to 5 years’ probation, it wasn’t until 1991 that he was arrested for the murders. By the time of his arrest, he was already murdering approximately one person a week. He would often drug and rape his victims. In addition to this, he would also attempt to turn them into little sex zombies by drilling a hole into their skulls and injecting either hydrochloric acid or boiling water into the frontal lobe area of the brain – while they were alive. He also engaged in necrophiliac acts before dismembering the bodies and besides preserving some of the body parts, such as the penis, he would save some of the organs in the fridge for consumption later. At least he was getting his protein, right?
When he was finally arrested, Jeffrey Dahmer was originally indicted on 17 murder charges, which were later reduced to 15, and with the sheer amount of evidence against him, Jeffrey Dahmer pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity. However, he was found quite sane and guilty on all murder charges, but because capital punishment had been abolished in Wisconsin, he was sentenced to 15 life terms in prison, which is equivalent to 957 years, the maximum penalty that was available.
Dahmer expressed remorse and “wished for his own death“… well, his wish came true when another inmate, Christopher Scarver (also a convicted murderer), bludgeoned him and yet another killer, Jesse Anderson, to death with a 20 inch metal bar when corrections officers had left the three of them to do janitorial work in 1994. Dahmer died of severe head trauma on the way to the hospital at the age of 34.
The mother of David Thomas, one of the victims, said in the video that she hoped that Jeffrey Dahmer should “never be able to walk the face of the earth or be able to harm anyone else again“. Most of the victims’ families were glad that Jeffrey Dahmer is dead and I certainly don’t blame them.
