Serial Killer Essay
I am going to write about a serial killer. Serial killer’s are people who kill at least 3 people in a period of time at separate places. They usually kill someone then take a short break then kill again. Sometimes when a serial killer attacks they might do sexual acts on that person. Serial killers can be a single person or more. They usually get an adrenaline rush from the murder. Serial killers sometime have unusual patterns of behavior, emotions and thoughts. I chose serial killer Jeffery Dahmer. Jeffery Dahmer was born on May 21, 1960 in a house where he had everything his heart desired.
When his parent’s marriage fell apart Dahmer began to have psychological issues. Jeffery had catalyst thoughts. The first person that he killed was a guy he picked up from off the highway. He then took him to his home and they had sex, the guy then wanted to leave, but Jeffery stopped him by hitting him in the head with a barbell. Jeffery cut up his body, placed the parts in a plastic bag the he buried behind his home. Jeffery Dahmer starting having drinking issues and the murders spree continued by killing guy that he either met or kidnapped. A lot of times he masturbated to the dead guy body and sometime body parts.
Dahmer murdered 17 men and boys between the years of 1978 and 1991. Majority of is murders took place between the years of 1987-1991. His murder style was to rape and dismember the body parts among other things The police found a lot of evidence; his house was infected with flies and insects. Jeffery Dahmer confessed to some of the murders, and he told police about the human remains he had stored in gallon drums. They found him because a victim went to the police and took them to Jeffery Dahmer’s home. He was given 15 consecutive life term sentencing.
On November 28, 1994, Jeffery Dahmer was supposed to clean an area in the jail with two other inmates. Later that morning prison guards found Jeffery Dahmer beating severely. About an hour had passed and Dahmer died from the beating. It was found out that another inmate beat him in the head with a broom handle. While Jeffery was getting beaten he said that he did not care if he lived or died. His serial killing spree lasted 13 years. Reference: Davis, D. (1991).
