With “Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story” on Netflix dominating the internet, true crime enthusiasts have one burning concern that the show neglects to address: what became of Jeffrey Dahmer? (Not to mention what transpired with his father Lionel, mother Joyce, and brother David).
The dramatization centers on a serial murderer from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, played by Evan Peters, who was found guilty of killing 15 men and boys between 1978 and 1991, including Tony Hughes and Konerak Sinthasomphone.
What Does the Jeffrey Dahmer Netflix Series Reveal?
The 10th episode of the Netflix series, which debuted on September 21 and has since shot to the top of the streaming site, is a subject of controversy due to how Dahmer’s crimes are portrayed; in an interview with Insider, a relative of one victim called the show “harsh and careless.” Hughes remarked in an October interview with the Guardian that she didn’t know how the TV show could have been made.
As the show draws to a close, viewers will see Dahmer in prison and the reactions of both the public and other prisoners to his widely reported trial. The story concludes with his death in 1994 and the ensuing legal dispute between his parents over Dahmer’s brain preservation.
“Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story” follows the convicted murderer from his early years through his trial and horrifying killings in each episode.
How did Jeffrey Dahmer die?
According to the New York Times, Dahmer, who was 34 years old when he passed away, was attacked and killed on November 29, 1994, at a jail in Wisconsin.
Michael Sullivan, the secretary of the Wisconsin Department of Corrections, told the New York Times that he died from “massive head injuries,” which he most likely sustained between 7:50 and 8:10 a.m. According to the article, Dahmer was discovered at the Columbia Correctional Institution in a bloody puddle close to the restrooms.
The Times also stated that a broomstick covered in blood was discovered close by.
Christopher Scarver, a fellow prisoner and Dahmer’s killer explained to the New York Post in 2015 why he killed the murderer. The now 53-year-old claimed that Dahmer would “make mutilated limbs out of prison food to mock the other prisoners.”
He went too far with inmates and guards, among other individuals. He stated to the publication, “While some prisoners are regretful, he was not one of them.
There was discussion about what to do with his brain after his death.
Regarding Dahmer’s body, his parents couldn’t agree on what to do with his brain, which was kept for a year in formaldehyde. In 1995, his mother Joyce told the Journal Sentinel that she wanted research done on his brain to determine whether biological reasons contributed to his behavior.
According to the Los Angeles Times, his son’s wishes were carried out by his father Lionel, who wanted his brain incinerated. In the end, the brain was cremated.
Right now, where is Christopher Scarver?
Scarver was first incarcerated in 1990 for the murder of a Wisconsin Conservation Corps employee. Scarver was given two more life sentences plus thirty years in prison in 1995 for the murders of Dahmer and another prisoner, Jesse Anderson.
Though he is still serving many life terms in jail, he has written poetry on his own. According to the Amazon bio for his 2015 poetry collection, Scarver now writes songs, music, short tales, poems, and jail procedures in addition to doing art.
American Christopher Scarver was found guilty of murder. He is well-known for having slain Jeffrey Dahmer, a serial killer, in 1994 while both of them were detained at Columbia Correctional Institution.
Scarver was a trainee carpenter in the Wisconsin Conservation Corps, but he was unable to work there full-time after his supervisor left.
After that, in 1990, Scarver demanded money from Steve Lohman, the new supervisor of the Wisconsin Conservation Corps, while claiming to be having auditory hallucinations. Scarver was furious that he had only been given $15 and killed Lohman by shooting him in the head.
