He had just graduated high school, so Dahmer was fairly young. At this point, his dad had moved away and his mom, following the divorce, leaving Dahmer an empty house to fulfill his curiosity of murder. He picked up a hitchhiker, Steven Hicks, and took him to his empty parents’ house. Dahmer relaxed with him and made him feel safe. When he wouldn’t do as Dahmer wanted, he hit Hicks in the head and strangled him to death with a barbell.
Once Dahmer was finished with the body he some times would keep a souvenir and then dispose of the body by eating the flesh or using chemicals to dissolve the flesh and throw the bones out.

Dahmer was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on May 21, 1960 to parents Lionel Dahmer and Joyce Dahmer. Growing up people said that he was a happy and energetic baby until he was four years old.

His father Lionel noted, that Dahmer seemed to grow inward and would sit for hours without emotion(Dahmer, 1994). There has been no information provided about Jeffery being the victim of sexual abuse, the bickering between his mother and father was intense.

Because of this unique characteristic, the audience can connect with characters on a more personal level, witnessing the development of characters throughout the story, or rather, a coming of age. Backderf, having experienced this coming of age with the serial killer, knows Jeffrey Dahmer was more than a monster; he was a shy, disturbed young man whose thoughts coerced him into madness. As a result, Backderf conveys the timeline of Dahmer’s downfall through panels and subtle narration that allow the audience to feel sympathy for the demonized Dahmer. For example, Backderf utilizes a common comic strip technique known as a “splash page” with great regularity. These pages contain a single image that convey a dramatic emphasis on certain scenes.

Before the age of 13, he would convince his sisters to play a game he called “gas chamber.” Gas chamber consisted of his sisters blindfolding him and having them lead him to a chair where he would die a painful death because of the “gas.” At 13, Kemper had killed his family’s cats by slaughtering one and burying the other one alive. After that event, Kemper’s mother forced him to move to his grandparents farm, which was where his killing continued. At the age of 15, Kemper shot and killed both of his grandparents; he shot his grandmother, after an argument, in the kitchen. He shot his grandfather in the driveway when he got home.
Unfortunately the Marines, Navy, nor Army didn’t enlist him due to him being underage and underweight along with having a baby face, it didn’t help Audie Murphy (Murphy 2002, p. 7).

Especially when she went through desperate measures to ensure her husband’s health is in good hands. To approach in detail, Torvald Helmer was once in such critical condition, that if he wasn’t transferred to a Southern location for medical assistance, he would be dead. Torvald Helmer was critically ill and needed financial support to be cared for.
