What Jeffrey Dahmer Was Like As A Kid

Updated 14 Jun 2019 65.6k views10 items

Jeffrey Dahmer raped, murdered, and otherwise dismembered 17 men and boys beginning in 1978--the same year he graduated high school--and ending with his arrest in 1991. What could have happened in Jeffrey Dahmer's childhood to create such a serial killer? Dahmer's crimes were particularly heinous, as he would drug and rape men before killing them. He even poured acid or boiling water into holes he drilled in their brains. After murdering his victims, Dahmer would often preserve their bones or genitalia. He even used skulls to masturbate.

The remains of his victims that Dahmer kept, as well as Polaroid photos he took, made his eventual arrest an easy one--when his last intended victim escaped and ran into the street, police found plenty of evidence of Dahmer's crimes. 

As crazy as his crimes may sound, there are also plenty of crazy Dahmer stories from his childhood. The troubled young man had exhibited strange behavior for years before eventually killing

Dahmer ended up being ultimately sentenced to 16 terms of life in prison; however, he was murdered in prison after only three years. His insanity plea did not work, as Dahmer was deemed to be sane while committing his crimes. If only someone could have realized that the strange, young Jeffrey Dahmer needed help.
