Who Was Jeffrey Dahmer?

Jeffrey Dahmer was a serial killer and was born on May 21, 1960, in Milwaukee. They were a family of four people, Joyce (his Mom), Linel (his dad), and a younger brother Devid. His parents were not in a good relationship. His mom used to take medicines for anxiety and depression. His father used to study chemistry and due to his research, he would stay away from the house for a longer period of this. This affected their relationship and the family felt left out.

Jeffrey was diagnosed with a double hernia in his scrotum and had multiple surgeries. His parents used to fight on this topic. His father believed that after the surgery Jeffrey would not have any problems in the future. But his mom did not want his child to bear the pain at a young age. The surgery brought a lot of change in him and Jeffrey was not the same after that.

What Is The Story Behind Jeffrey Dahmer’s 72 Polaroids?

Jeffery Had committed about 17 murders in his life. He used to take photographs of his victims with his camera. He would cut their body parts and then click pictures of the dead body in sexual positions. Then he would keep the body parts in the freezer. The reason for taking pictures of the body still remains a mystery. 

He was constantly bullied in the school and did not have friends. Since childhood Jeffery was anti-social. He used to pick insects and bugs in a jar and bring them home. His dad discovered Jeffrey’s interest in dead bugs so he took him on a drive and brought a dead raccoon with him. His dad dissected the raccoon in front of Jeffrey and from there he picked interest in the dead body and internal organs.

According to the people who studied his case, after killing people he used to feel lonely and that is why he would click pictures and keep the body parts of the dead with him. These helped him to overcome his sadness and loneliness. Later these pictures helped the police to find the culprit, when they searched his room the police found 72 Polaroids.
