The Milwaukee Cannibal's heinous crimes are back in the news thanks to Netflix's new series, Dahmer.
But for some people, seeing Evan Peters transform in to the serial killer cannibal isn't enough... they want to know more facts about the real life Jeffrey Dahmer.
How tall was Jeffrey Dahmer?
Jeffrey Dahmer stood at 6 ft 0 in, or 185.0 cm. In his police and prison mug shots, he seems to hover around the 6" mark, but we can only assume his thatch of blonde hair made it look like he was slightly over the 6 foot mark.
He certainly wasn't the tallest serial killer ever. Ed Kemper stood an enormous 6 ft 10!
How old was Jeffrey Dahmer when he died?
Jeffrey Dahmer was 34 when he was bludgeoned to death with a gym weight by Christopher Scarver, on November 28, 1994. They were both inmates at Columbia Correctional Facility in Wisconsin. He told the New York Post that Dahmer had taunted him and other inmates by making his prison meals in to limb shapes and covering them in ketchup.
He said: “I asked [Dahmer] if he did those things [killing and eating men] ’cause I was fiercely disgusted. He was shocked. Yes, he was. He started looking for the door pretty quick. I blocked him. He ended up dead. I put his head down."
Scarver smashed him twice over the head, crushing his skull. Dahmer was dead before arriving at hospital.
What did Jeffrey Dahmer say about killing his 17 victims?
“It's a process, it doesn't happen overnight, when you depersonalize another person and view them as just an object for pleasure and not a living breathing human being. It seems to make it easier to do things you shouldn't do.”
