Jeffrey Dahmer lived in Apartment 213. It has since been demolished. Dahmer, 31, was met by two police officers at his home on 924 North 25th Street, Suite 213.

The living room was small, but it had a large, comfortable armchair, a healthy potted plant on a tall pedestal, an oriental rug, blue curtains at the window, some nice pictures on the wall, and one framed picture of a naked male model, according to Brian Masters’ book The “Shrine of Jeffrey Dahmer.” The room had nothing shady or filthy about it. In fact, it appeared to be surprisingly clean and well-kept for the neighborhood.

There were also VHS tapes of Cocktales, Chippendale’s Tall, Dark, and Handsome, Rock Hard, Hard Men 2, Hard Men 3, Peep Show, and Tropical Heat Wave.

The police were informed by Dahmer that his bedroom contained the key to his handcuffs. One officer decided to follow Dahmer because he had a bad feeling about it. A bloody knife was found under the murderer’s bed, and the open chest drawer contained images of naked men.

The Polaroids contained images of severed heads, missing limbs, and rotting torsos, which shocked the police when they looked through them.

A drum filled with decaying body parts was one of the horrifying clues that detectives and forensic scientists discovered. Later, Dahmer claimed that he had murdered 17.

The only evidence of what happened to a number of his victims, including his first, was contained in Dahmer’s 60-hour confession and the photos he took as souvenirs.
