Who killed Jeffrey Dahmer? | The Sun

JEFFREY Dahmer was one of the most notorious killers in US history – and his crimes shocked the world back in 1991.

And now his crimes are getting renewed attention once again, as Netflix bring viewers a new limited series – telling the heinous story of Dahmer's life and demise.

Who killed Jeffrey Dahmer?

Dahmer was killed by fellow Columbia Correctional Institution inmate and convicted murderer Christopher Scarver on November 28, 1994  in Portage, Wisconsin.

On the morning of November 28, 1994, Scarver was assigned to a work detail with two other inmates – cannibalistic serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer and Jesse Anderson who was serving life in prison for murder of his own wife.

While cleaning the prison gymnasium toilet, Scarver removed from a 20-inch metal bar from the prison weight room and brutally hit Dahmer twice around the head.

He then beat Anderson with the same weapon – who was working in a separate room.

Dahmer was declared dead an hour after arriving at the hospital and Anderson died two days later, after doctors removed him from life support.

Scarver told of how he kept a newspaper article, detailing Dahmer’s heinous crimes – which included killing 17 men and boys between 1978 and 1991, having sex with their corpses, storing some of the body parts and eating others.

Just before he killed Dahmer, Scarver who was ''fiercely disgusted'' by Dahmer's crimes said he confronted him with the clipping.

He also revealed that Dahmer’s creepy sense of humour during his time in prison contributed to the killing.

While in prison, Scarver told of how Dahmer would turn prison food into fake limbs covered with ketchup to resemble blood and would leave the fake limbs around the prison where others would find them.

Scaver said: “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.”

He also told The Post that Dahmer got into so many interactions with other inmates, that he needed an escort of one guard at all times.

 In his interview with The Post, he confirmed the incident was no accident and hinted that prison officials may have purposefully left him alone with Dahmer. 

“They had something to do with what took place. Yes,” he said.
