Infamous serial killer and cannibal, Jeffrey Dahmer, was bludgeoned to death in prison back in 1994 – while serving 16 consecutive life terms.
The serial killer and sex offender, who committed the rape, murder and dismemberment of seventeen men and boys between 1978 and 1991 was not a popular inmate at the Columbia Correctional Institution in Wisconsin. But I don’t think we had to tell you that.
However, one man in particular despised him. And his name is Christopher Scarver.
Scarver, pictured above right, is the man who killed Dahmer over twenty years ago, and he recently spoke to the NY Post out about it:
He’d drizzle on packets of ketchup as blood. It was very unnerving. He would put them in places where people would be.
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.Advertisement
Scarver went on to explain how Jeffrey would always have a personal security escort at all times when out of his cell, because of the issues certain inmates had with him.
He then explained how he would always keep his distance from Dahmer, with the intention of never becoming the butt of one of his sick jokes – but this all changed on November 28, 1994.
The pair, as well as a third inmate, Jesse Anderson, were “led unshackled” into the bathrooms to clean them by prison staff. They were then left unattended.
Then while Scarver got on with his job, someone poked him in the back. Both Dahmer and Anderson continued to make fun of him and giggle between themselves. So he snapped.
Prepared for the situation, Scarver grabbed a metal bar from the weight room and followed Dahmer into a locker room. He confronted the serial killer with a news article he purposely took with him.
I asked him if he did those things ’cause I was fiercely disgusted. He was shocked. He started looking for the door pretty quick. I blocked him.
Scarver then took the metal bar to Dahmer’s head, and with two swings of the bar, crushed his skull before going on to kill Anderson. And with that, one of the most notorious serial killers in history was dead – on the floor of a prison locker room.
