Jeffrey Dahmer Part I: The Milwaukee Cannibal

November 15, 2020

In part one of this series on Jeffrey Dahmer, instead of doing a complete rehash of all his individual murders and all the grotesque details, the trial so on, since everyone knows who Jeffery Dahmer is, and his case has been covered by tons of true crime podcasts, documentaries, and tv shows, this stories has been told time and time again. So instead we wanted to discuss more of the mysteries that still surround this highly talked about serial killer.

On July 27, 1981 in Hollywood Florida, a six-year-old boy went missing from a Sears store, and On July 22, 1991, almost 10 years to the day, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, a 31-year-old man is arrested for the attempted murder of a young man. Soon it emerges that this attempted murder is on the lower end of the spectrum of evil as it is soon revealed that the 31-year-old man has murdered at least 17 people, and as time goes on and more details emerge, the depths of his depravity and unimaginable desires grow ever deeper. Dahmer appeared as an open book in his confessions and interrogations and even granted access to in-depth interviews to the media, but what about those 10 years and the many miles between those two locations?
