Notorious gay serial killer/cannibal/necrophiliac Jeffrey Dahmer made a name for himself in the early 1990s when he was convicted of raping, murdering, and eating seventeen men and boys between 1978 and 1991. He was sentenced to fifteen terms of life imprisonment in February 1992. In November 1994, he was beaten to death by another inmate.

Get your popcorn ready, ’cause Jeffrey Dahmer’s killer is speaking out about that fateful day:


On the morning of November 28, 1994, Christopher Scarver bludgeoned Dahmer to death with a 20-inch metal bar in the shower. He told the NY Post that he did it because Dahmer used to sculpt severed body parts out of prison food, drizzle them with ketchup, and taunt other inmates with them.

“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.”

Scarver was locked up for killing his former boss during a robbery in 1990, in which he walked away with just $15 cash. Though he never personally interacted with Dahmer, he says he had heard about what the 34-year-old cannibal had done and was “fiercely disgusted” by it.

How Jeffrey Dahmer’s killer did it

Are you a serial killer gay? Bet you watched the Dahmer series on Netflix.

On November 28, he and Dahmer, as well as a third man by the name of Jesse Anderson, were sent to clean the prison bathrooms by correction officers. They were unshackled and left them unattended. After getting their cleaning supplies together, the three men split up. Scarver followed Dahmer toward the staff locker room. On his way there, he grabbed a metal bar from the weight room.

“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 proceeded to clobber Dahmer in the head until, he says, “he ended up dead.” Afterwards, he killed Anderson as well. He believes the guards are partly responsible for the killing. Why? They intentionally left the men alone together in hopes that he would murder Dahmer.

“They had something to do with what took place,” he says.

Upon learning of her son’s death, Dahmer’s mother, Joyce Flint, angrily told the media: “Now is everybody happy? Now that he’s bludgeoned to death, is that good enough for everyone?”

Jeffrey Dahmer’s killer, Scarver, was sentenced to two further life sentences for the killings. He claims that he spent 16 years in solitary confinement for killing Dahmer. Today he spends his time writing poetry, which he self-publishes on Amazon.
