'Chilling' Interview With Serial Killer Jeffrey Dahmer Resurfaces

'Chilling' Interview With Serial Killer Jeffrey Dahmer Resurfaces

The infamous criminal explained the thought process behind his horrific crimes


A 'chilling' interview with notorious serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer has resurfaced on social media.

In 1992, Dahmer - otherwise known as the Milwaukee Cannibal - was convicted of murdering 15 men and boys, having confessed to 17 killings.

His crimes were some of the most gruesome ever heard in a US courtroom, with the killer dismembering, eating and having sex with the bodies of his victims.

Watch him explain what drove him to carry out his sick crimes here:

In the clip, which has gone viral on TikTok, Dahmer explained why he started eating his victims.

He said: "If I couldn't keep them there with me whole, at least I felt that I could keep their skeletons.

"Branching out, that's when the cannibalism started, eating of the heart and the arm muscle. It was a way of making me feel that they were a part of me."

The video has been viewed 2.1 million times since it was shared on Monday (11 April), exposing a whole new generation to his appalling deeds.

One person commented: "His self awareness is what chills me to the bone, he knew exactly what he was doing and why he was doing it. That's the scariest part."

Another said: "The thing is, he would be seen as any normal person physically. The cold, disconnected way he describes it… it's chilling."

A third added: "How was she not scared to just sitting there and talking to him???? I was scared through the screen!!!!"

The clip is taken from a 1993 interview with Inside Edition, in which he opened up about his killing spree, which spanned from 1978 to 1991.

"The compulsive obsession with doing what I was doing overpowered any feelings of revulsion," he said in the interview.

"I tried to overcome the thoughts, and it worked for a while, but eventually I gave in."

Watch the interview here:

Dahmer was killed the year after the interview by fellow inmate at Columbia Correctional Institution Christopher Scarver, who bludgeoned his head with a metal bar.

Explaining why he did it, Scarver told the New York Post: "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."
