Inside heartbreaking lives of Jeffrey Dahmer’s victims who were slain in ‘Milwaukee Monster’s’ lair as Netflix show airs!

Jeffrey Dahmer’s story continues to shock the world decades after his violent murder spree that killed 17 men and boys.

His reign as the “Milwaukee Monster” ended after he was arrested in 1991 and later convicted of 15 murders, and sentenced to several life sentences.

Dahmer murdered young men between the ages of 14 and 32, many of them from LGBT minorities he encountered between 1978 and 1991.

His method was to dismember and even dismember some of his victims while preserving their body parts for rewards.

Netflix aired a 10-episode drama series about the infamous serial killer on September 21.

Evan Peters plays Dahmer in Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, which largely tells the story of his horrific actions from the point of view of his victims.

Stephen Hicks

Weeks after graduating from high school in the summer of 1978, Dahmer committed his first murder after noticing a passenger on the side of the road.

Dahmer lured 18-year-old Stephen Hicks, who was on his way to a concert in Ohio, into his car with a beer and brought him home.

The two began drinking at home, and after rejecting Dahmer’s sexual attempts, he hit Hicks with dumbbells before strangling him.

Then the young Dahmer, who owned the house to himself when his parents were out of town, dissected his victim’s body and buried it in the garden.

He kept digging up the corpse, dissolving it in acid, and crushing the bones with a sledgehammer.

Stephen Tommy

It took nearly a decade before he next killed Dahmer after confronting 25-year-old Stephen Tome at a bar.

At this time, Dahmer was living with his grandmother in West Alice, Wisconsin.

He had also served a stint in the US Army in West Germany, but was deemed unsuitable for military service due to his excessive off-duty drinking.

Dahmer persuades Tommy to join him in his hotel room, and awoke to find the other man lying under him in bed covered in bruises.

In interviews, Dahmer has said he does not remember killing Tommy but cut his body in an attempt to get rid of him, beheading him in the process.

James Doxator

After Tommy was murdered, Dahmer continued to regularly search for his victims—the third of which came just three months after Tommy was murdered.

That victim was a 14-year-old American prostitute named James Doxator who paid $50 to pose for nude photos before strangling him and leaving his body in his basement.

He will later get rid of Doxtator in the same way as Tuomi.

Richard Guerrough

Dahmer met his next victim, 22-year-old Richard Guerrero, outside a Milwaukee bar.

Dahmer offered him $50 to take him back to his grandmother’s house, where Dahmer drugged him and strangled him with a leather belt.

Then he had sex with Guerrero’s corpse and dismembered his body.

Anthony Sears

Anthony Sears, a 24-year-old aspiring model, met his killer at a bar.

Dahmer persuaded Sears to accompany him to his grandmother’s house, where he drugged and strangled him.

He also kept the gruesome trophies from the murder – Sears’ head and genitals – because he found Sears “exceptionally attractive”.

Then, there was a hiatus between Anthony Sears and the subsequent murder victims as Dahmer was sentenced to a year in prison for sexually assaulting 13-year-old Caison Synthasomphon in September 1988.

Raymond Smith

In May 1990, Dahmer moved out of his grandmother’s house after a stint in prison, and now resides in an apartment at 924 North 25th Street in Milwaukee.

Soon he met a 32-year-old sex worker named Raymond Smith.

Dahmer offered Smith $50 to take home with him. Then he drugged and strangled him to death.

Dahmer took photographs of Smith’s corpse before dismembering his body, preserving his skull, which he kept next to Sears’ remains.

In a 1993 interview, Dahmer said he portrayed his victims as a way to remember their “look and physical beauty”.

“I also wanted to keep… If I can’t keep them there whole, at least I can keep their skeletons.”

Edward Smith

Dahmer was aware of his seventh victim, 27-year-old Edward Smith.

They had apparently been seen together in clubs before, and at Dahmer’s trial, Smith’s brother alleged that Smith “tried to be friends with Jeffrey Dahmer”.

However, Dahmer killed him and hid some parts of his body in his freezer until they began to decompose and disintegrate.

Ernest Miller and David Thomas

Two of Dahmer’s victims were killed during September 1990: 22-year-old Ernest Miller and 22-year-old David Thomas.

Miller was killed first, and unlike most of Dahmer’s victims who were drugged and strangled to death, Miller’s throat was slit.

Three weeks later, Dahmer met Thomas and was able to bring him back to his apartment.

Dahmer then drugged and strangled him, but chose not to keep any of his body parts.

Curtis Strugger

Dahmer used his usual trick of offering money for nude photos of 17-year-old Curtis Strauger, who agreed to return to Dahmer’s apartment.

Like many, Dahmer then drugged, strangled, photographed and dismembered him.

He kept various parts of his body, in order to eat meat and save them as trophies.

Errol Lindsey

19-year-old Lindsay suffered one of the most agonizing deaths as he survived one of Dahmer’s gruesome experiences.

Luring Lindsay back to his apartment, Dahmer drugged him – then drilled a hole in his head and poured hydrochloric acid into it.

Dahmer had hoped to put Lindsay in a permanent, submissive state, but Lindsay woke up after the operation, claiming to have a headache.

In response, Dahmer drugged him again before strangling him and decapitating the young man.

Lindsay’s skull was kept as a trophy and Dahmer tried to preserve his skin but after it became too fragile, Dahmer reluctantly disposed of it.

Anthony Hughes

Dahmer met the first victim, 31-year-old Anthony “Tony” Hughes, at a Milwaukee gay bar.

Hughes, who appeared in the sixth episode of the series played by Rodney Burford, had permanently heard him as a child because of the medications he was taking.

It also appears that he was dumb.

The two reportedly met at a gay bar where Hughes “talked” to people by writing on a notebook and that he communicated with Dahmer in the same manner.

According to the Associated Press, “Hughes went to dance at a Milwaukee gay bar on May 24, 1991. Jeffrey Dahmer picked him up, took him home, drugged him, tore his body and kept his skull.”

However, it is possible that Hughes did eventually work with his killer, as his mother said in an interview that her son “took a new job two weeks ago and didn’t get his first pay.”

His mother could not communicate with her boyfriend because she bears only his first name – Jeffrey.

Hughes was Dahmer’s twelfth victim.


Shortly thereafter, Dahmer lured 14-year-old Konrac Synthasomphon – the younger brother of the boy he assaulted again in 1988 – to his apartment.

Dahmer tried to “dig” again on Sinthasomphone.

While Sinthasomphone manages to escape, Dahmer convinces him to return.

Then he continued to experiment with digging again, eventually killing him.

Matthew Turner

Matthew Turner, 20, died, just like many others.

Dahmer met the young man at a bus stop and offered to take him to Milwaukee for a professional photo shoot.

In his apartment, Dahmer strangled and dismembered Turner.

Dahmer then kept some parts of Turner’s body in his freezer.

Jeremiah Weinberger

Just days after killing Turner, Dahmer set off on a two-week killing spree starting with 23-year-old Jeremiah Weinberger.

Dahmer lured Weinberger from a Chicago bar to his apartment, promising to spend the weekend with him.

Instead, Dahmer drugged him and injected boiling water into his skull, putting him in a coma that would kill him two days later.

Shortly thereafter, Dahmer met 24-year-old Oliver Lacey, who accepted Dahmer’s offer to take nude photos of him in his apartment.

The two engaged in sexual acts together before Lassie was drugged.

Dahmer had hoped to extend his time with Lacey, trying to drug him with chloroform to render him unconscious, but his attempts were unsuccessful.

He eventually strangled Lacey, and had sex with his corpse before dismembering it.

Lacy was kept as a sick trophy as well, with his head and heart in Dahmer’s fridge and his skeleton in the fridge.

Joseph Bradehoft

Days after Lacey’s murder, Dahmer learns that he has been fired from his job.

After hearing the news, he lured 25-year-old Josef Bradehoft to his apartment and strangled him.

Dahmer left Bradehoft’s body on his bed for two days before beheading him.

On July 22, 1991, Dahmer’s luck finally ran out.

Just days after Bradehoft was murdered, 32-year-old Tracy Edwards was lured into his apartment by offering him nude pictures.

Edwards manages to escape and bring the officers to Dahmer’s apartment.

The police found more than enough evidence to know that Edwards was not the only victim of Jeffrey Dahmer.

Dahmer was beaten to death by Christopher Scarver, a fellow inmate at the Columbia Correctional Institution.

He died at the age of 34 on November 28, 1994, in Portage Prison, Wisconsin.
