Christopher Scarver

Christopher Scarver talks about why he killed Jeffrey Dahmer and the “prison-wide plot” for the first time in “Why I Killed Jeffrey Dahmer.”

The inmate says that the murder was made easier by the jail guards.

Christopher Scarver has finally explained why he killed Jeffrey Dahmer, a fellow prisoner who was serving 16 life sentences for killing, raping, and dismembering 17 men and boys, more than 20 years after the murder.

Scarver said he killed Dahmer by hitting him twice in the head with a metal bar. He said he did this because he was scared of the murderer, who he said would make severed limbs out of jail food and put ketchup packets on them to look like blood.

Scarver, who is now 45, told The New York Post, “He would put them where people would be.”

“He went across the line with some people, including prisoners and jail workers. Some people in jail are sorry for what they did, but he wasn’t one of them.”

Scarver says that Dahmer was always backed up by at least one guard when he was out of his cell because of fights with other inmates at Wisconsin’s Columbia Correctional Institution. It is thought that Dahmer’s crimes included necrophilia and cannibalism.

“I saw Dahmer and other prisoners fight sometimes,” said Scarver, who was in prison for killing his boss during a robbery and was serving time.

He said he never talked to Dahmer and tried to stay away from him until the morning of November 28, 1994, when guards let him go free so he and Dahmer and another inmate, Jesse Anderson, could clean the bathrooms together.

Scarver says that while he was getting his bucket filled, someone hit him in the back with a mop.

He said, “When I turned around, Dahmer and Jesse were kind of laughing under their breath.” “I looked right into their eyes, but I couldn’t tell who had done it.”

The three men then go their separate ways. Scarver follows Dahmer into a locker room, where he corners him and shows him an article about Dahmer’s crimes that he had been keeping in his pocket. Dahmer was shocked and quickly “started looking for the door.” Scarver hit his head with a metal bar twice, breaking his skull.

“He ended up dead. I lowered his head, “he said.

When Scarver saw that there were no administrators around, he gave Anderson the same blows.

“Pretty much the same thing happened,” Scarver said. “He got his head cut off.”

He said that none of this was a coincidence and that Dahmer’s punishment officers hated him, wanted him dead, and left him alone with Scarver because of this.

“They were responsible for some of what happened. Yes, “Scarver said, “Just before I hit Dahmer with the 20-inch, 5-pound metal bar, the guards left.”

Scarver didn’t say more because he was afraid of getting in trouble.

“I would need a good attorney to assure there would not be any reprisal by Wisconsin officials or to get me out of any type of retaliatory position they would put me in,” he said.

An inquiry that followed the murders discovered that Scarver had worked alone. Scarver received 2 life verdicts for the murders.
