officers entered the apartment, they found 83 Polaroids of bodies in various stages of dismemberment. There were more shocking discoveries in the kitchen. There were four fully in fleshed skulls still there, sitting in a refrigerator, one of the officers said. He opened the icebox. He heard a scream. It was only later that he realized that was he himself, who had screamed. Mhm. TV news cameras rolled as what was left of the victims was carried out. The 57 gallon drum filled with the torsos of three men, a freezer with dismembered limbs and flesh metal cooking pots with mummified hands and genitals. This time there was no lie. Dhamar could tell to save himself. He was walking, had a pretty defeated manners. Shoulders are hunched. His head was down. He was sweating profusely. Kind of had a kind of a faint kind of a whining, like a baby crying noise about him. At the police station, detectives began a marathon interview with the suspected killer. Dahmer at first blamed the booze instead of himself, saying he wouldn't have been caught if he hadn't been so drunk. But Bomber was now clearly scared. The look of terror and almost hysteria that he had on his face at the interrogation room. That first night, as he was coming down off the alcohol and finally realizing that the gig was up, he was caught. Uh, he he did cry. Several times he went into a rage. Besides asking to kill himself, he stood up and bounced around a couple times. Once Dahmer's sobered up, no one could guess at the gruesome details to follow. He made this statement. When I tell you what, I'm going to tell you, you're going to be famous and I tried to say, Look, Jeff, there's nothing that you can tell me that is going to freak me out And he laughed at that. He said, You don't know. You don't know what I've done. Dahmers spent the next six weeks with the detectives recounting the murders of 17 men, a 159 page confession. It seemed cathartic to dominate to finally get the deeds of the last 13 years off his chest. With the information from his confession, investigators went back to Dahmer's childhood home in Bath, Ohio. They raked up the shattered bones of Steven Hicks, Dahmer's first victim the Milwaukee County coroner started matching skulls with torsos, and the police began the sad task of notifying families. Dahmer pleaded guilty but insane. The issue of his sanity would be the sole question before the jury. You know immediately that it's going to be probably an insanity defense. What can you argue? You can't claim self defense. You can't say you don't know how those bodies got there. Wisconsin had no death penalty, so if the jury found him saying he would spend the rest of his life in prison if they found him in saying he would be imprisoned in a mental facility, Dahmer himself couldn't understand why he enjoyed fantasizing about murder. Definitely thought he was the devil. Jeffrey thought he was so evil that he was equal to the devil and he knew there was something wrong with him. But he didn't know what it was, but he never categorized himself as being insane. The man who entered the Milwaukee County courtroom in January 1992 appeared completely normal until the words of his confession were read in court by Lieutenant Dennis Murphy. He related this was a person he really liked. He indicated that he had fileted his heart and kept it in the freezer, and he also kept his bicep. He indicated that he had eaten the thigh muscle of this subject, but it was so tough he could hardly chew it. He then purchased a meat tenderizer and used it on the bicep. Dahmer's father, Lionel, sat in the courtroom beside his second wife, Sherry, stunned by what he heard. No one softened the blow for us. No one told us. No one prepared us with any of these details. How could this be? How could I have not known about it? Dahmer's crimes seem to be devastating proof of insanity. What else could explain the actions of a man who had sex with the dead, dismembered their bodies, preserved their skulls and ate their flesh all for sexual gratification. But the law has a very strict interpretation of insanity. Dahmer's defense team had to prove two things, one that he indeed suffered from a mental disease and that it kept him from knowing right from wrong necrophilia. A compulsion to have sex with the dead is recognized as a sexual disorder, but it does not make one legally insane, he argued. that the necrophiliac drive was such that he could not control it. But we don't accept that in the United States as a defense, no more than we accept a pedophilic drive of the man who wants to have sex with Children. Mhm. Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I understand you have arrived at verdicts and this man, In a 10 to 2 decision, the jury found Jeffrey Dahmer's legally sane. Mhm. Some relatives of Dahmer's victims sat quietly in court. Others cried prior to his sentencing. They were allowed to express themselves before the judge. I owe that to control you. You know I'm gonna kill you. Not that anybody. Once order was restored, Dormer spoke publicly for the first time. I feel so bad for what I did to those poor families, and I understand their rightful hate. I have seen their tears, and if I could give my life right now to bring their loved ones back, I would do it. I am so very sorry. Many questioned the emotional depth of Dahmer's apology whether a man who killed so routinely had the conscience to feel remorse. The judge sentenced Dumber to a 937 year prison term, but it would last only a few tormented years. Mhm. Jeffrey Dahmer's final home was the Columbia Correctional Institution in Portage, Wisconsin. His former residence at the Oxford Apartments in Milwaukee stood as a painful reminder of the lives that ended there. So in November 1992 it was demolished in his prison cell. At the age of 32 Dahmer's life became a conflicted introspection, trying to sort out the blame for his killing nature and seeking divine forgiveness for it. He had spent time in church as a boy and with his grandmother as an adult, but had lost his religion during the murder spree. Damn ER placed the blame for the murders. On his atheistic beliefs and the theory of evolution, he said. If it all happens, naturalistic Lee, what's the need for a God can't I set my own rules? Who owns me? I own myself. Yet Jeffrey was still a contradiction, for he was always quite willing to blame the devil for taking over his soul. The serial killer wondered now what would happen to him when he died. Damn, I decided he wanted to be baptized, evangelist Roy Ratcliffe was called by the prison minister to talk with the inmate in April 1994. He was a very affable, congenial, likable sort of person. I always felt like I was dealing with a small boy in a grown up man's body. He could get really excited and interested in meat or cool things that little boy would get involved in. One month later, Damour was taken to the Prison Medical Center, where he was baptized in a whirlpool. On the way, we walked by other prisoners who were coming by with mops and brooms and various cleaning devices, and they looked up and the only one they saw whom they recognized was Jeff. And so they called out in a very friendly banter. Hey, JD, how's it going? And he called back then I'm going to be baptized. This is great. Dumber appeared to be making a remarkable transformation in prison. He would ask questions. He would, he would say, But wait, what about this? What about that so uncharacteristic of the earlier years, you know, go back to senior year in high school, you wouldn't get any of that. He was so interactive and so concerned about our welfare, you know, he was reaching out. He was. He was re humanizing. But those dark, haunted fantasies remained with Jammer. I'll probably have to live with it for the rest of my life. I wish it would go. I wish there was some way to completely get rid of the the compulsive thoughts, the feelings. Damn, I got another reminder of his past When he was visited by Theresa Smith, Jeffrey had killed her brother Eddie first thing when he did, when he when he came in and apologized for killing my brother, I asked him why my brother and he said he's seen the way he dance, you know, and he liked the way he looked and he said I was just attracted to him. He said he had strangled him, and then he was trying some new experiment or something with preserving the the skull and the body and whatever, and it didn't work, so he had to destroy them. Dahmer had spent his entire adult life as the Predator, but now in prison he became the prey. The notorious serial killer was a target for other inmates. In August 1994 he was attacked in the prison chapel with a crudely fashioned knife. He survived. Yeah, but on November 29th, 1994 inmate Christopher Scarver, who called himself Christ bludgeoned Dumber with a metal rod from the prison gym. Mhm, Dahmer died on the way to the hospital. Among his last wishes, Donner had asked to be cremated. His ashes were split between his mother and father. There are statements in his will and testament that say, I don't want a marker. I don't want to grave. I don't want a funeral. I don't want any kind of He's saying I don't I want to be wiped out. But the horrible questions that his life of killing posed do continue, and they defy answers. There's a mystery of mysteries and will never be solved. Even if he lived, I don't know that what he was all about would ever be solved except maybes. It's hard when there's no explanations. Sure, there were red flags in Jeff's life, but no one knew about him. He was so secretive, so careful
