According to reports, Jeffrey actually not only assaulted but also killed Jesse Anderson, another convict who killed his wife. It is said that Jeffrey, Jesse and Christopher were doing their assigned cleaning duty and the prison guards only left them alone for 20 minutes when this all happened.

However, one thing to note is that “both Dahmer’s and Anderson’s murders provoked huge repercussions for race relations in Milwaukee, as most of Dahmer’s victims were people of color—mostly black or Hispanic—and Anderson initially led the police in pursuit of two black men who he said have committed his crime.

Detectives later confirmed that these crimes were not racially motivated. In 2015, Christopher Scarver gave an interview to the New York Post when he said that his crimes were not the reason he killed the monster. In fact, it was his eyes and the audacity to poke fun at his misdeeds.

Some of Dahmer’s pranks were like using ketchup packets to mimic blood, then shaping the prison food into different body parts. But Gerald Boyle, who tried hard to defend Dahmer, said a serial killer would never mock himself. He said, “Dammer was such a toast. He would never do these things,” “He killed people, but he didn’t make fun of them. I never saw him do anything that would lead me to believe he would imitate the death he caused. I just don’t believe it.”

Christopher Scarver told his side of the story, and even today he is serving his sentence at Centennial Correctional Facility, Colorado. He currently has schizophrenia which is harmful not only to him but also to others.
