Cannibalism, necrophilia, and memories
The ten-part series will retrace the serial killer's chaotic childhood, then the 13 years in which he killed men without being worried. His first known crime was Steven Hicks, a 19-year-old hitchhiker, in 1978, when he was 18 years old. Jeffrey Dahmer had joined the military at his first murder as a teenager after falling into alcoholism. In 1991 he was arrested and sentenced to 17 murders, chiefly African-American men. He raped the body after killing them and before cutting them. He also tried to lobotomize some of his victims and kept "memories," like their skull or genital attributes. He also admitted to eating parts of his victims and was nicknamed the cannibal of Milwaukee, the city where he was born.
In 1994 Jeffrey Dahmer died, serving 16 life sentences, in prison killed by an inmate.
