Christopher Scarver, the convict and in-mate who murdered Jeffrey Dahmer, said that he grew to despise the man.
Scarver, who arrived at the Columbia Correctional Institution in Wisconsin, in 1992, landed there around the same time Jeffrey did. He said he knew right off to stir clean of the serial killer.
Dahmer, Christopher explained, would fashion severed limbs out of prison food to taunt the other inmates. He’d use packets of ketchup to represent blood. Worse yet, he’d then put the eatable ‘limbs’ where other people were forced to see them. It was very unnerving,” he added. “Some people who are in prison are repentant, but Dahmer wasn’t one of them.”
Scarver revealed that he did keep an eye on Dahmer from a distance, But, he added, he never approached the sick humored, mad man. “I saw heated interactions between Dahmer and other prisoners from time to time,” Christopher said. “But I never interacted with him myself.”
Christopher said that Dahmer always had to have a personal escort when he was out of his cell because of his conflicts with other inmates.
SO HOW DID HE GET THE CHANCE TO MURDER SERIAL KILLER JEFFREY DAHMER
However, on the morning of November 28th in 1994, all of that distance changed for Dahmer and Christopher. On that particular morning, Jeffrey, Christopher and a third in-mate named Jesse Anderson, were led, unshackled, to clean the gymnasium bathrooms. The correction officers then left the three men alone to do their duties.
At some point, Christopher had filled a bucket with water and was retrieving a mop, when someone poked him in the side. He turned to find both Jesse and Jeffrey laughing at him.
Christopher, who was sickened and appalled at the sinister crimes Jeffrey had committed against young men, allowed the moment to pass and instead carried on with his duties.
Then Christopher followed Dahmer toward the staff locker room. Once inside, Christopher grabbed a 20-inch, 5-pound metal bar and turned on Dahmer.
“I asked him if he did those things.” I was fiercely disgusted, Christopher admitted. “Dahmer was shocked, but he said yes, he did them.”
With two swings of the bar, Scarver murdered Milwaukee’s Cannibal by smashing in his skull.
Scarver doesn’t believe that he ended up in that room with Dahmer by accident. Everyone, including the prison guards, knew he hated Dahmer and believed he should be dead.
Scarver initially pleaded insanity to the charge of murder against serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer but later changed it to “no contest” in exchange for a transfer to a federal penitentiary.
Christopher, who was already serving a life term for killing his former employer in 1990, was sentenced to two more life terms for killing Dahmer. (And Jesse Anderson. He murdered him, just moments later, with the same metal bar, in the exact same fashion.)
I guess that’s called no harm, no foul?
