Jeffrey Dahmer, surely you have heard this name, especially after the netflix series released in 2022; Dahmer.

How Did Jeffrey Dahmer Get Caught?

Jeffery preyed on his victims by offering them money and inviting them into his apartment, men will either go for the kinky money offer or in the hope of some sensual moments with no clue of what they are walking into. That’s how he invited Tracy Edward.

Dahmer’s arrest was possible on July 22 because Edward, one of his victims, managed to escape and contact the police informing them, he had been kidnapped by a “freak”, and had been kept captive. This fateful incident put an end to Dahmer’s cruelty. When police reached at Jeffrey’s apartment, he acted as if he wasn’t bothered by the accusation but rather took the officers to his bedside dresser for the keys to the handcuffs he laid on Tracy, claiming to the police he was just performing some kink. But that’s when events turned.

The officers found a knife hidden under the bed, upon further investigation of the apartment they found polaroids of dismembered bodies. Having been caught Jeffrey resisted but was manhandled by the officers. But it was the beginning of unraveling his gruesome crimes.

Police also found 5 severed heads preserved in the refrigerator, with two human hearts, an arm, torso and other different human organs. This was a true horror like a frozen hell. He had also preserved two penises cut from bodies of the victims in a drum, filled with two skeletons and a pair of hands.
