Few tears were shed for Jeffrey Dahmer when he was murdered by another prison inmate in 1994. The notorious serial-killing cannibal objectified and victimized young men for decades, then horrified the country when authorities unearthed the lurid details.
Now his murderer has spoken out (coincidentally shopping around his story to publishers), after spending 18 years in solitary confinement for the murder of Dahmer and another unfortunate “wrong-place-wrong-time” inmate who happened to be on the same work detail.
Christopher Scarver was a 25 year old convicted murderer serving a life sentence when he, Jeffrey Dahmer and Jesse Anderson were inmates at Wisconsin’s Columbia Correctional Institution on November 28, 1994.
Scarver was convicted of fatally shooting Wisconsin Conservation Corps job program supervisor Steve Lohman in the head because the victim could produce only $15 when Scarver robbed him at gunpoint. Site manager John Feyen cheated death by giving Scarver a $3,000 check. (Agreed…stranger than fiction.)
On November 28, 1994, Scarver, Dahmer and Anderson – all convicted murderers – were left unshackled and unattended to clean a prison bathroom. Scarver grabbed a metal bar from the weight room and confronted Dahmer about his crimes. Disgusted by Dahmer, Scarver murdered Dahmer (and Anderson for good measure). Scarver received 2 additional life sentences and solitary confinement from which he emerged 18 years later.
Now Scarver is selling his story. According to Scarver, the murderous rage resulting in Dahmer’s and Anderson’s deaths was caused by…diet problems. Scarver claims his psychotic rages are caused by eating bread and refined sugar.
Scarver now lives in a medium-security (?!) prison and writes poetry.
Rumor has it that he still takes checks.
