Serial killer, rapist, cannibal, and necrophile Jeffrey Dahmer is murdered in jail by another inmate
Dahmer and 2 other inmates, Jesse Anderson and Christopher Scarver, were tasked with cleaning the jail’s showers. Scarver attacked both men with a 20-inch metal bar, causing extensive head injuries. Both were found alive, though both later died of their injuries: Dahmer died an hour after arriving at the hospital while Anderson died 2 days later. Scarver, who was diagnosed with schizophrenia after being convicted for the murder of his supervisor over money, claimed God told him to kill Dahmer and Anderson (who was convicted of killing his wife by stabbing her 5 times in the face and head then stabbing himself 4 times in the chest to attempt to throw suspicion off himself).
According to one source, Dahmer did not say anything before being attacked while another states his Last Words were “go ahead and kill me. I don’t care.”
