Where can I see the originals of Jeffrey Dahmer’s polaroids?
Jeffrey Dahmer has been back in everyone’s minds following the release of Netflix’s series Dahmer. His horrific crimes still stand the test of time and terrify those who dig a little deeper. With a body count of 17 people across 14 years. His horrific crimes first came to light in 1991, when he was arrested for murder, necrophilia, dismemberment, and cannibalism. But who exactly was Jeffrey Dahmer and why did he commit such heinous acts?
In this article, we’ll take a closer look at Jeffrey Dahmer’s life and explore his legacy from the tragic Polaroids left behind.
Growing up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Jeffrey was an introverted child who struggled with severe depression. He had difficulty fitting into society and as he grew older became increasingly isolated from his family and peers.
By high school he had become fascinated by dissection – sometimes taking home animals he found dead on the side of the road to preserve them. He went on to study at Ohio State University but quickly dropped out due to alcohol abuse issues brought upon by growing mental health struggles.
It wasn’t until 1978 that Dahmer committed his first murder when he killed 19-year-old Stephen Hicks while they were hitchhiking together in Ohio. After killing Hicks, Dahmer brought him back to his grandmother’s house where he proceeded to dismember him before burying his body parts in her garden. This would set off a long spree of murders spanning numerous states – all involving similar patterns & tactics.
From then onwards, Jeffrey Dahmer began experimenting with drugging & chloroforming his victims so that he could take erotic photographs or perform sexual acts on them afterward. The evidence for these depraved practices can be seen through police finding several Polaroids taken by himself featuring his lifeless victim’s post-mortem; which has been described as “a crucial piece of evidence” during the trial.
Most importantly, however, investigators believe it also serves as a unique insight into why Jeffery even committed such heinous crimes in the first place.
The media interest surrounding this case led to investigations being conducted beyond murder charges, including suspicion around whether there may have been others involved in the killings; especially when it comes down to those polaroids – something still up for debate today.
Ultimately though, what happened during those dark moments will remain unknown forever due to its sheer complexity & ongoing mystery still hanging above them!
Jeffrey Dahmer died an ignoble death at Columbia Correctional Institution (CCI) – one year into serving 15 consecutive life sentences – after being attacked by fellow inmate Christopher Scarver who claims he heard voices directing him to do so. Regardless, what remains is both an eerie reminder of human potential for evil & reminder of how incredibly fragile life really is.
