Jeffery Dahmer By: Jordan roberts

tYPE OF SERIAL KILLER

Jeffery Dahmer would be classified as an organized killer because all of his crimes were related in some way and the things that he would do to the victims was very similar each time he committed these crimes.

Jeffery Dahmer's childhood

Jeffery was born on May 21 1960. Jefferies childhood was very normal until he grew a little older, at around the ages of 10 to 15 he began to become more uncommunicative and showed little interest in hobbies and social interaction. In High school he began to have interests in dead animals and began to drink heavily. His father forced him to enroll in the army but he got kicked out for alcoholism.

Joyce Dahmer- Jeffery Dahmers madre

Joyce worked as a teletype machine instructor, but the carrying of Jeffery was hard and she became easily annoyed. So the family moved in with Joyce's mom.

There were constant fights between Joyce and Lionel. This began to make "cracks" in their marriage. That led to their divorce on July 24, 1978. This is a very big impact on Jeffery's life because he took all of this to heart.

What did Jeffery do?

Between the years of 1978 and 1991, Dahmer murdered 17 males. rape , dismemberment, necrophilia, and cannibalism was involved in many of his murders.

Jeffery was beaten to death on November 28,1994 by an inmate at the Columbia Correctional Institution, where he had been incarcerated.

How his murders could have been solved better

To stop Jeffery Dahmer from doing what he did could have been helped by putting him in therapy when he started having interests in dead animals this would have made him not become as unsocial and as uncommunicative as he was. His crimes could have been better solved if after he was arrested for indecent exposure then he should have been watched to see if he does any thing suspicious and once he was doing anything suspicious then they could have arrested him and stopped him from killing anymore people.

How I can use this to help solve other serial killer cases

I will be able to use this to help me solve other serial killer cases because If at a crime scene i start to notice tendencies that I can link to other crimes then I will be able to faster find who the serial killer is and stop him from causing anymore crime. Also it shows me how once someone is arrested one time that you should keep an eye on them to see if they do anything that is suspicious or if he commits anymore crimes .
