When he wanted to go afterwards, he hit him with a barbell. "I didn't want him to go," was Dahmer's later statement after his arrest - 16 murders and 13 years later. In 1988 he worked in a chocolate factory.
At that point, he was sentenced to five years suspended probation for attempted rape. The victim was the 13-year-old Somsack Sinthasomphone.
In May 1991, Dahmer lured the 17-year-old Konerak into his new apartment and drugged him. Miraculously, Konerak escaped the apartment and ran naked on the streets of Milwaukee. Two concerned women called the police. It was only much later that Konerak is Somsack's brother - Dahmer's victim from 1988.
Jeffrey Dahmer also came and was able to convince the police and the two women that the young Konerak was his lover, with whom there was a disagreement. Just like Ted Bundy, Jeffrey Dahmer had the ability to convince his environment with his rhetorical skills.
Despite protests by the women, the two police officers accompanied the serial killer and the minor Konerak back to his apartment. Once in the apartment everything seemed normal for the sheriffs. There was a smell of putrefaction: a dismembered body lay in Dahmer's next room. The fatal error took its course after the policemen left. Dahmer dismembered Konerak calmly and then stored his head in the freezer. Complaints from neighbors about the smell of Dahmer's apartment were ignored.
On July 22, 1991, less than two months later, the victim Tracy Edwards also managed to escape from Jeffrey's apartment. This time the police checked the rotten smell in the refrigerator, where several heads and other parts of the body were lying. Jeffrey Dahmer was subsequently sentenced to 957 years.
In November 1994, prisoner Christoper Scarver killed Jesse Anderson and Dahmer. The police exclude racist motives from Scarver, although the victims of both killers were predominantly African-American in origin. Serial killer killer Scarver subsequently described his murders as “God's deed”.
