Jeffrey Dahmer: Killer Cannibal Jeffrey Dahmer once said, “I remember my first sexual encounter because I kept the recipe”. Jeffrey Lionel Dahmer was a serial killer. He was also a cannibal and necrophiliac, which is someone who has sex with a dead person. By the age of 34, Dahmer had killed, dismembered, and ate 17 young minorities.

He would also put ketchup around his mouth, and tell the guards, “Be careful, I bite”. Dahmer’s creepy sense of humor made him lose his life. On November 28, 1994, he was beaten to death by a fellow inmate, Christopher Scarver. They were both in the weight room when Scarver hit him over the head with a metal bar twice.
