Between 1978 and 1991, Jeffrey Lionel Dahmer, also known as the Milwaukee Cannibal or the Milwaukee Monster, was an American serial killer and sex offender who murdered and dismembered seventeen men and boys.
Many of his later murders included necrophilia, cannibalism, and the permanent preservation of body parts, usually the entire or a portion of the skeleton.
Dahmer was born on May 21, 1960, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, as the first of two sons to Joyce Annette, a teletype machine instructor, and Lionel Herbert Dahmer, a chemistry student and later research chemist at Marquette University.
Joyce Dahmer’s ancestors were Norwegian and Irish, while Lionel Dahmer’s ancestors were German and Welsh.
What did Jeffrey Dahmer do for a living?
Dahmer worked at various jobs over the course of his life.
He enlisted in the Army in 1979, but his alcoholism made it difficult for him to perform his duties as a medic, so he was let go in 1981.
After working as a phlebotomist, he ran a sandwich shop.
After being unemployed for two years, he started working in a chocolate factory.
On February 17, 1992, he was convicted of fifteen of the sixteen murders he committed in Wisconsin and sentenced to fifteen terms of life imprisonment.
Dahmer was later sentenced to a sixteenth life sentence for another homicide committed in Ohio in 1978.
Dahmer was beaten to death on November 28, 1994, by Christopher Scarver, a fellow inmate at the Columbia Correctional Institution in Portage, Wisconsin.
