Notorious serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on May 21, 1960, into the household of Lionel and Joyce Dahmer. He was energetic and happy until the age of 4.A surgery to correct a double hernia seemed to effect a change in the boy.By his early teens, he was disengaged, tense and largely friendless.Dahmer claims that his compulsions toward necrophilia and murder began around the age of 14, but it appears that the breakdown of his parents' marriage and their acrimonious divorce a few years later may have been the catalyst for turning these thoughts into actions.After he graduated from high school Dahmer picked up a hitchhiker named Steven Hicks and took him home to his parents' house. He proceeded to get him drunk.Hicks tried to leave and Dahmer killed him by striking him in the head and strangling him with a barbell. He dismembered the corpse of his first victim, packed the body parts in plastic bags and buried them behind his parents' home.He later ate the remains, crushed the bones with a sledgehammer and scattered them across a wooded ravine.Dahmer's killing spree lasted for more than 13 years. During that time he sought out mostly African-American men at gay bars, malls and bus stops, lured them home with promises of money or sex, and gave them alcohol laced with drugs before strangling them to death.He would then engage in sex acts with the corpses before dismembering them and disposing of them, often keeping their genitals or skulls as souvenirs.He took pictures of his victims at various stages of the murder process, so he could recollect each act afterward and relive the experience.
