Jeffrey Dahmer

Jeffrey Dahmer was a notorious serial killer who killed about seventeen young males and boys. Most of the victims were African-American or other minorities, but they were also homosexuals. Dahmer, a 31-year-old good-looking man from Milwaukee, would cruise gay bars and choose his victims by their skin color (mostly dark), attractiveness, and their physique. Jeffrey Dahmer would lure them into his apartment and that’s where he would begin his infatuation with his supposedly new lover. Dahmer would perform some of the most horrifying acts a human being could ever commit. In some cases Dahmer would drill holes in the victims head and then pour acid through the skull, he would keep the heads as a “souvenir”. He would also tear the bodies’ limb from limb and keep a certain body part from the victim to remind him of their endless beauty. Jeffrey Dahmer was a sick and twisted man. In his eyes he believed he did no such thing wrong. He blamed his outrageous behavior on alcohol. But one thing Jeff Dahmer had was wits because he did know how to out smart a judge. Dahmer at one time spoke on his own defense and the things he would say would make you think twice maybe he is truly sorry for his actions and deserves a second chance or maybe it’s just an extraordinary act which he plays well. The judge fell right into his trap in which lead Dahmer to be on probation for five years, serve a sentence for a year in the House of Correction and Dahmer would still be able to work during the day and return to jail at night. I would have to consider Jeff Dahmer has a brilliant yet wicked psychopath. Dahmer eventually got his ways but what the judge didn’t realized is that Dahmer would continue to hunt and kill even after Dahmer’s father wrote the judge a letter pleading him not to release his son until he received proper psychiatric treatment.

Serial killers tend to murder strangers rather than people they know.   Their victims normally have something in common such as age, race, educational background, gender, occupation, or facial features.   Serial killers normally have an image of the perfect victim, but will sometimes settle for anyone, if he cannot find his preference.      Victims who are from broken homes, runaways, prostitutes, and they who suffer from drug and alcohol abuse normally fall prey to serial killers.   Serial murders sometimes share common characteristic; however, their approach to killing might differ.   According to Fahui Wang, some serial killers are organized and others are disorganized.   Some serial killers are very organized, and they plan their attacks with care; they tend to be very selective in choosing their victims, and oftentimes, follow the same patterns when committing a crime.   Their crimes are planned in detail, and they involve various ways in which the murders will occur.  ......

Jeffrey Dahmer

...Jeffrey Dahmer Reed Criminology Instructor Steven Cable Word count: 787 words Abstract Jeffrey Dahmer was an intensely troubled child who grew up in an environment rejecting him fuelling his loneliness. As an adult his instability only escalated. This has revealed that parental upbringing is of core importance in a child’s development of social skills. As seen with Jeffrey Dahmer he did not receive that socialization bond be it with his parent or other people in his life. All the way through his childhood, Jeffrey Dahmer was ignored and developed a way of perceiving himself as an outsider, rejected by society. This loneliness and sense of rejection grew until it aggravated his compulsion to commit the monstrous crimes of murder, necrophilia, and cannibalism. As seen from his biography he didn’t have close relationships that could have deterred him from committing the crime as the social control theory suggests. In his loneliness Jeffrey filled that void with dismembering animals, a behavior later seen in his crimes. It can thus be concluded that creation and nurturing of social bonds are very essential in childhood socialization and in the development of stable psychological state of mind. Jeffrey Dahmer’s Criminal Theories Jeffrey Dahmer has had many different theories applied to him, such as the social control theory, rational choice theory, and many other psychological theories. The sociological theory of deviance that best fits the criminal behavior of......

...unrealistic images of female beauty presented by the media and their negative effects on women. (Hansell & Damour, 2008) The Case of Jeffrey Dahmer Jeffrey Dahmer was born on May 21, 1960. He lived in a wealthy suburb on Akron, Ohio, in an estate. His father was a successful research chemist and blames his son’s behavior on the medications his mother took while pregnant with him (Meyer, Chapman, & Weaver, 2009). His mother suffered from hysteria, depression, suicidal ideation, and psychosomatic illnesses (Martens, 2011). Dahmer’s first grade teacher wrote a note to his parents telling them the Dahmer acted as though he felt neglected since his younger brother was born. He remembers his home as being constantly tense because of his parents fighting. Dahmer felt guilty for being born because his mother suffered from postpartum depression and had a nervous breakdown after his birth (Meyer, Chapman, & Weaver, 2009). There were many things Dahmer did as a child that was peculiar. He displayed angry, shy, and impulsive behavior (Martens, 2011). He had a fascination with dead animals, liked to repeatedly listen to his friends’ hearts by placing his head on their chest, collected animals that had been dead on the side of the road, cut off their heads and placed them on sticks (Meyer, Chapman, & Weaver, 2009) . In junior high, Dahmer said that he masturbated daily and constantly dreamed of having sex with boys his age. He started thinking of using corpses for......

...Behind the Mask of a Serial Killer ENG/147 AAIA1EJ2I4 December 1, 2014 Kevin Phillips Behind the Mask of a Serial Killer Throughout hundreds of years, serial killers have reigned terror on many people. Some of the most notorious serial killers include Charles Manson, Jeffrey Dahmer, and Ted Bundy. Many people have pondered and wondered what motivated serial killers to kill multiple people. Many psychologists believe that most serial killers’ problems are more of a form of mental disorder, as other people believe that the problems stemmed from their environment. While there is no definitive test for serial killers, there are some important characteristics that can help law enforcement profile and catch these serial killers. Early Signs Law enforcement should examine the early childhood of possible serial killers by observing children with troubled fantasies. According to Feud he wrote, “The grandiose infantile narcissistic ego is characterized by states of magical or omnipotent thinking (Freud 1914)”. This means the fantasies are an illusion and it becomes powerful enough to fulfill these fantasies that are thriving in the mind. Therefore by monitoring early children’s fantasies then, they could be treated to dissolve and maintain these early warning signs of potentially becoming a serial killer in the future. Psychological abuse has also played a major role into the background of a serial killer. Seventy-two......

Why We Have Serial Killers

...Why do we have serial killers in this world of ours? Is not life hard enough? Now we also have to worry about someone out there going nuts and deciding to kill people for who knows what. Every now and then a new one turns up somewhere in this grand country of ours. Why don’t we take a moment and consider some recent serial killers right here in America. Let’s see, we’ve had John Wayne Gacy, the crazy clown killer, who liked to bury his victims under his house. And then there was good old Jefferey Dahmer who liked to keep body parts in his refrigerator. And let’s not forget our intellectual killer, the infamous Ted Bundy, of whom the Judge said, “You would have made a good lawyer.” He liked to lure college aged girls into his volkswagon before killing them. You’ve had The Green River Killer, The BTK Killer, and that guy who killed his whole family and left classical music playing in the house before he changed his identity and eventualy worked in a church. There was Richard Speck of Chicago, and The Boston strangler from, well, you know. How about The Zodiac Killer? Who liked to kill at random and then taunt the police with letters. That was a great movie. I highly recommend that one. Then, there was Henry Lucas, who said he killed over 200 women over a twenty year period in the midwest, and last but not least, Coral Watts, who liked to beat women to death and let their bodies dissolve in his bathtub. He also said he killed about 200 people. But, his real reason for......

...A Jeffrey Dahmer Story Tyler Jones Understanding Criminal Minds December 2, 2014 Jeffrey Dahmer Fantasies can be strengthened by great amount of sex drive that assists in unusual behaviors; sexual murders are based on fantasies. The purposes of the fantasies are to take control of the victims; the killer wants the control because he/she has sought it since childhood. It is known that very few serial killers have healthy relation with their parents. “Jeffrey Dahmer was born on May 21,1960, in Milwaukee; his parents were Lionel and Joyce Dahmer. Joyce had problems during her pregnancy and started taking drugs to treat her sickness” (Fischoff, 1996). After Jeffrey was born he had difficulties with his legs and needed help with his legs for four months. Despite this problem he seemed to grow up as a healthy beautiful child, but at one point his mother started to refuse to breast-feed him. Since she could not handle breast-feeding, this increased her consumption of antidepressant and psychotropic drugs. “After a few years the couple moved six times in their first years of marriage. In 1962, the family moved to Iowa. Lionel had been accepted to a doctoral program in chemistry; in this period Jeffrey got sick very often and required several injections to treat the infections” (Fischoff, 1996). “When he started preschool his interest for insects and animals was starting to take form, in fact, he helped his father in nursing a owl they found.

Jeffrey Dahmer

...Forensic Chemistry Jeffrey Dahmer: The Milwaukee Monster It was May 21st, 1960 when Jeffrey Lionel Dahmer was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to Lionel Dahmer and Joyce Flint. Dahmer was raised there as an only child. He was a child that was full of life, interested in everything you would assume your average boy to be interested in. He loved to wrestle with his father and help him around the house all the time. Outgoing and curious, Dahmer was everything any set of new parents could ask for and more. One thing interesting was his early fascination for animals. He loved to help his dad clear the animal bones from under the house where animals had died. As the bones were dropped in to a bucket, Dahmer was overwhelmed with joy at the sounds they made. As he grew older, the fascination of the sound of bones became a fascination with turning animals in to just bone - he began to kill them. In 1968, Dahmer’s family moved to Akron, Ohio to a small town call Bath in the Bath Township. That same year, he became a brother to David Dahmer. It seems as though from that point on things started going downhill for Dahmer. As he neared junior high, Dahmer became much more introverted. Although he was always the class clown throughout both junior high and high school, students still knew something seemed to be off with Jeffrey Dahmer. As Dahmer grew from the boy he was in to the teenager he was becoming, he was going through a hard time in his life. His parents marriage had been......

Dahmer, Jeffrey

...Mia Alonzo Mr. Oliverez English 2 8 May 2016 Jeffrey Dahmer There are plenty of serial killers in American history. Devastating as it may be, they’re still a part of it. There have been hundreds of serial killers documented and identified over the decades in America (statistics), but there have been a handful that have stood out from the rest. One of them was a man named Jeffrey Lionel Dahmer. Given the circumstances of his murders, his psychological profile, or just the initial public shock of it all, it all stems from where he started- his childhood. He stood out from the rest of America’s 20th century serial killers, and for a good reason. Jeffrey Dahmer was known as as The Milwaukee Cannibal and The Milwaukee Killer. These nicknames, given by the media provided a hook, and ensured their story be read or heard. He he was convicted of rape, murder, taking the lives 17 men and boys throughout a span of 13 years, from 1978 to 1991 (CBS). Jeffrey Dahmer’s killings involved necrophilia, cannibalism, the preservation of body parts, and lobotomy (crime museum). Lobotomy was a psychosurgery procedure that involved inserting a long metal “pick” of sorts and inserting it through either the nose, or through the gap above the eye to the to the frontal lobe of the brain. It was used to treat, ironically, severe psychological disorders in the 1940’s and 50’s (How Stuff Works). He was obviously not performing one for medical reasons, but instead just to satisfy his sexual......

A Sane Killer

...A Reasonably Sane Killer Jeffrey Lionel Dahmer was born may 21st 1960, in West Allis, Wisconsin. He was the son of Joyce Annette and Lionel Herbert Dahmer, and an older brother to David Dahmer. By all accounts he was born into a seemingly normal family, in a middle class white neighborhood. He attended and completed Revere High School, and then attended Ohio State University for a short period of time, but was asked to leave due to his drinking habits. Dahmer underwent Hernia surgery when he was eight years old, and it is said to have changed his personality from that point on. Growing up, Dahmer realized at a young age his fascination with dead creatures. He would patrol his neighborhood for dead animals and then bring them back to his home or the woods and dissect them. Although Dahmer did not torture or kill animals, he had pets of his own at home; he was interested in seeing what was inside of them. At the age of thirteen, Dahmer also had the realization that he was homosexual, causing him major confusion, and sexual frustration. After the age of thirteen he began to distance himself from reality more and more. He suffered from being the victim of bullying all through his school years, due to his strange uncommunicative personality. He was also suffering from loneliness and rejection from his peers and family. Dahmer severely lacked social skills in his teenage and childhood years. At this point in his life he was starting to have very impulsive fantasies......

Necophilia

...and were sexually deviant. The serial killers who engaged in necrophilia never killed their relatives. They also showed a lack of empathy in their actions. So many serial killers practice acts of necrophilia, from their distort obsession of female body parts to actual sexual intercourse. Ed Kemper, Andrei Chikatilo, Jeffery Dahmer, and Ted Bundy are just a few of the documented serial killers known for practicing necrophilia. However, Jeffery Dahmer and Theodore Robert “Ted” Bundy are perhaps the most notorious of the serial killers who practice necrophilia. Jeffery Dahmer was 18 years old when he committed his first murder to a hitch hiker he picked up named Steven Hicks. Jeffery Dahmer who as a teen showed signs of isolation and alcoholism went on to later be indicted on 17 murder charges from 1978 to 1991. He used his victims as youthful submissive sexual partners. Dahmer killed and dismembered his victims keeping their heads or other body parts as souvenirs. Jeffery was found guilty on 15 counts of murder and sentences to 15 life terms in jail where he later was beaten to death by an inmate named Christopher Scarver. Jeffery Dahmer’s father Lionel Dahmer wrote a book called “A Father’s Story” where he gives insight into his son’s path of destruction.

Jeffrey Dahmer

...Jeffrey Dahmer was born May 21st, 1960, the first child for Lionel and Joyce Dahmer, after a difficult pregnancy that had Joyce on various prescription drugs. Jeff and his little brother David were raised in Bath Township, Ohio. Unlike many other killers, Jeffreys parents were not abusive. Joyce had some relatively mild psychological problems, but Lionel tried to be as loving a father as possible, struggling to reach his quiet and isolated son. As a small child, Jeff seemed happy enough, playing with his dog or riding his bike, but was fascinated with death. When Lionel removed some animal bones from under the porch, the remains of small creatures killed by small local predators, Jeff seemed quite pleased by the sound they made dropping back into the bucket. His father dismissed it as childhood curiosity. Jeff was the class clown, known for doing things as ridiculous as faking seizures for laughs. In fact, he was lonely and isolated in school, with few friends. By high school, he was a full-blown alcoholic, drinking before, after, and even during class. When his parents divorced, his father was the one to move out of the house. When Jeff was 18, Joyce took David and left. Jeffrey was alone in the house with little food and a broken refrigerator until his father and his new wife found out about the situation and moved into the house. Trying to help his son, Lionel assisted Jeffrey get into the University of Ohio. But it was already too lateJeff Dahmer......
