Introducing 14-year-old Jeffrey Dahmer, Jamie Doxtetter’s third victim

The new Netflix miniseries Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story chronicles the gruesome and sad murders committed by one of America’s most notorious serial killers between 1978 and 1991.

According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, Jeffrey Dahmer preyed primarily on homosexual youth and young men, many of whom were people of color. The people he later brought back to his house with the promise of money or sex were often those he met in public places such as shopping centres, pubs and bus stops.

According to Biography, after the boys arrived at Dahmer’s place, he drugged them, killed them and then had sex with their bodies before dismembering them. According to the New York Times, Dahmer often kept gruesome memories of his crimes and disposed of his victims’ bones in a 57-gallon jerry can.

His heinous actions were hidden from public view for over a decade. Before he was arrested in 1991, Dahmer had already killed seventeen people. His victims included a woman named Jamie Doxtator.

Who is Jeffrey Dahmer?

Jeffrey Dahmer was born on May 21, 1960 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to Lionel and Joyce Dahmer. Throughout his childhood, Jeffrey was raised the same way as any other child. His mother and father quickly realized that their son had lost his once boisterous enthusiasm, was detached and wanted to be left alone.

During high school, he participated in traditional extracurricular activities, such as music and athletics. However, he admitted that he started thinking about things like murder and necrophilia when he was only 14 years old. After a while, he joined the army, from which he eventually received an honorable discharge.

How did they catch him?

It wasn’t until one of Dahmer’s victims fled his apartment that the police were able to catch him, despite the fact that they had received several reports from Dahmer’s neighbor, Glenda Cleveland.

He goes by the name Tracy Edwards. On July 22, 1991, Tracy ran away from Jeffrey’s house, and the next day the police caught him wandering the streets with handcuffs attached to one of his wrists. He then led the police back to Jeffrey Dahmer’s apartment, where he promised to get the keys to the handcuffs.

However, when the police investigate Dahmer’s bedroom, they discover frightening Polaroid photos that Jeffrey took. When Dahmer was arrested, the police came to further search his apartment.

What they found was more than shocking: chloroform, believed to have been used to drug his victims, a barrel of acid to dissolve the men’s bodies but preserve their skeletal remains, knives, various parts of the body that had been dismembered and gruesome photographs of the victims’ bodies.
