'Why I killed Jeffrey Dahmer' Prisoner Reveals How Serial Cannibal Taunted Inmates, Fashioning Limbs Out Of Prison Food
21 years ago, whilst in prison, Jeffrey Dahmer [Left], who was notorious for his sick crimes or cannibalism, was killed by a vigilant inmate. That inmate has spoken out about his experiences for the first time.
Dahmer, who was 34 at the time, was serving 16 life sentences after being found guilty of murder, rape and the dismemberment of 17 men and boys – offences committed between 1978 and 1991 with later killings are thought to have involved both necrophilia and cannibalism.
Christopher Scarver murdered Dahmer in 1994 whilst behind bars in the Columbia Correctional Institution.
On Dahmer, Scarver said that he would spend his time taunting fellow inmates over his crimes. After being locked up in 1990 for killing his boss in a robbery, Scarver said he hated having to be in close proximity with the cannibal – he said that Dahmer would arrange his food to look like body parts and cover it in ketchup to resemble blood.
“He crossed the line with some people – prisoners, prison staff. Some people who are in prison are repentant, but he was not one of them.“
“I saw heated interactions between [Dahmer] and other prisoners from time to time. I never interacted with him.”
Dahmer and another inmate had been assigned to clean the prison bathroom when Scarver cracked. He was being mocked by the two when he confronted Dahmer with a newspaper clipping of one of his horrific crimes.
“I asked him if he did those things because I was fiercely disgusted. He was shocked. He started looking for the door pretty quick. I blocked him.”
After that he crushed Dahmer’s skull with a metal bar from the gym, killing him. He then did the same to Anderson, the other inmate, who had been jailed for killing his wife.
Scarver alleges that prison staff wanted Dahmer dead, and left him alone with the killer. Christopher Scarver since spent 16 years in solitary confinement and remains in prison, serving 3 life terms.
