You never truly know the evil a man is capable of until you find them rooted in the most astonishing situation.
The same story goes for Jeffrey Dahmer, who looked sane and calm but was later tagged as the most chilling American serial killer and s*x offender in modern history.
Between 1978 and 1991, Jeffrey Dahmer notably abused, killed, dismembered, and even ate over 16 people (mostly African-American). He was not only a serial killer; he was also a cannibal.
Jeffrey Dahmer was born in 1960 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to a middle-class family. Although his family was not extremely rich, his parents tried to provide as much as they could.
However, Jeffrey was not like every other child. While other children love to play with toys, Jeffrey preferred relating to things peculiar to death and pain.
He would notably collect the carcasses of dead animals and sit to listen to the sounds of rattling bones. When he was in high school, he moved to Bath Township, Ohio, with his family.
Jeffrey, who wasn’t concerned about his family’s financial and mental status, became an alcoholic. His high school report notably stated how he often hid liquor in his jacket. While exploring his teenage years, Jeffrey involved in a lot of things to feel among.
At a time, he pulled jokes about having seizures in school. Jeffrey grew, but he grew for the worse. Every day, it was as though added to his life made him a worse version of who he ever was.
During his exploration, he realized that he was gay but while being gay is not a wrong s*xual identification, what was abnormal about his s*xual interest was the uninteresting s*xual fantasies.
Jeffrey began to think of how to r*pe the men he found attractive. Rather than enjoy a relationship like every sane person would, he began to harbor a sort of master-slave s*xual relationship.
Actualization Of Desires
Soon after his high school graduation, Jeffery’s parents divorced. He decided to stay with his mother while his brother lived with his father in a nearby motel.
While anyone would have thought it was a good idea for Jeffery to stay with his mother, Jeffery saw it as an opportunity to actualize his fantasies.
On days his mother wasn’t around, he would go around town to see who could actualize his satisfy his intentions.
On one of his days out, Jeffery Dahmer met 18-year-old hitchhiker Steven Mark Hicks who was on his way to a concert.
Dahmer initiated a conversation with the innocent boy and eventually convinced him to drink at his house before going for the show.
