Jeffrey Dahmer’s murderer has opened up about the build-up to his killing of the cannibal, revealing that his victim used to re-arrange his food so it resembled a human-being.
Christopher Scarver murdered Dahmer in 1994. The pair were both inmates at the Columbia Correctional Institution when Scarver crushed Dahmer’s skull with a metal bar that he’d taken from the prison’s weight room.
And Scarver has revealed to the New York Post that he decided to murder Dahmer because the serial killer had been slowly antagonizing him by celebrating his horrific crimes, which saw him murder, rape, and dismember 17 men and boys between 1978 and 1991.
Scarver explained that Dahmer would mold his meals into limbs and then drizzle packets of ketchup over his food so that he could pretend he was devouring blood.
Scarver, 45, explained, “He would put them in places where people would be. He crossed the line with some people – prisoners, prison staff. Some people who are in prison are repentant – but he was not one of them.”
Scarver admitted that he saw numerous altercations and arguments between Dahmer and other inmates, and even though he tried to keep his distance from the prisoner after he arrived in the Wisconsin prison in 1992, he slowly found himself becoming more and more agitated by Dahmer’s constant jokes about his hideous crimes.
Then on the morning of November 28, 1994, Scarver reached breaking point after he found himself alone with both Dahmer and another inmate, Jesse Anderson, cleaning a bathroom.
The trio were unshackled and left unattended as they went about their chores. When Scarver, who was serving time for murder, went to retrieve his mop and fill up a bucket he was poked in the back by either Anderson or Dahmer.
“I turned around, and [Dahmer] and Jesse were kind of laughing under their breath,” Scarver explained. “I looked right into their eyes, and I couldn’t tell which had done it.” The trio then split up, but Scarver decided to not only follow Dahmer, but also confront him with a newspaper clipping that he had which depicted Dahmer’s atrocities.
He then brandished the aforementioned metal bar and asked him if he’d committed these crimes. Dahmer then tried to exit, but Scarver blocked him and hit him with the metal bar, which crushed his skull.
Scarver, who at the time was only aged 25, then came across 37-year-old Anderson, who looked to see if any officials were near but was then smacked in the head by Scarver’s bar.
Scarver is adamant that prison officials left him alone with Dahmer, so that he could murder the serial killer. “They had something to do with what took place,” Scarver insisted, however he refused to go into further detail because he was concerned about his own safety. “I would need a good attorney to ensure there would not be any retaliation by Wisconsin officials,” Scarver added.”Or to get me out of any type of retaliatory position they would put me in.”
Scarver, who was originally imprisoned for murdering his former boss during a 1990 robbery, is currently serving three life terms.
