Inside the Mind of Jeffrey Dahmer: Serial Killer’s Chilling Jailhouse Interview

Published 2018-11-27
Warning: This video contains graphic descriptions of violence. Twenty-four years ago, Jeffrey Dahmer was beaten to death in prison while serving 16 life sentences. In 1993, the man known as “the Milwaukee Cannibal” granted Inside Edition a jailhouse interview and was forthright about his crimes. During his reign of terror between 1978 and 1991, Dahmer killed 17 men and boys and kept some of their body parts in freezers inside his home. He was eventually arrested in 1991 when a victim escaped. #InsideEdition

    It’s so crazy how serial killers look and act so normal. The scary thing is thinking about how many people you maybe crossed without knowing being evil as well.

    It’s terrifying how calm and normal serial killers seem, you just never know.
  • ubsession??
    It's scary how calming his voice is and how manipulative he seems
  • Doomed2Existence
    This interview is literally insane. The way he’s able to recognize the bizarreness with such clarity but at the same time almost be completely detached from the carnal side of himself. Very strange man, it’s like he’s split in two mentally
  • Amanda Welker
    How calmly he can analyze himself is just chilling.

    I remember watching this interview for the first time years ago. It never gets old because it's strangely fascinating.
  • Diamond inestroza
    It’s almost unreal seeing him have a conversation like a normal person knowing he did all that
  • Sophie Saros
    He is so calm and the way he can explain exactly why he did what he did with such intelligence and poise, is truly haunting.

    I was actually pretty upset about the Monster series at first. I just watched the whole thing, and I get it now. Watching this made it all more real. I already knew about the crimes, but while I was sucked into the series, I perceived all the pain, grief, anxiety, that all of the victims' families went through... I think, in a way, this reminded people of these victims. They deserve to be remberberd. My heart goes out to them all, you deserve to heal.

    Kudos to Nancy Glass for maintaining that interested yet non judgmental and non reactive expression as he is sharing these shocking details
  • Curiuosgirl
    He got away with a lot of it because the police ignored the woman next door who told on him... repeatedly... What horror she must have experienced, living next to such madness. What a brave soul she was!

    ‘Addiction is a solution to a problem with another problem’ if you know you know. There’s darkness in all of us, some raised right wouldn’t know while those who’ve suffered, struggle to ride the balance.

    Absolutely shameful how the police failed that 14 year old child!!

    Jeff wasn't sorry for any of it. Jeff was sorry that he wasn't careful enough.

    I believe he wanted to be caught. Like others have mentioned he knew it was wrong but just couldn’t stop his addiction. What’s scary is this addiction he couldn’t stop is the same process that happens to many drug users or people with other nasty addictions. It happens the same way but for him and his circumstances, it unfortunately happened to be killing people.
  • BRO WTF. THE WAY HE LOOKED SO CALM AND NORMAL WHEN HE WAS TALKING. that’s terrifying
  • 홀리 [holly]
    its crazy.. you never wouldve thought that a killer could look so innocent. if i hadnt heard his story i would think he was a sweet, kind innocent person. looks can really be deceiving
  • Krystal Gomez
    He is articulating it so well. Its bizzare and in normal words creepy🙂
  • Meep Peep
    The fact that he is so aware and still did it is absolutely terrifying.

    Dahmer definitely one of the most disturbed serial killers in U.S. history, but can’t deny that his honesty and confessions isn’t interesting unlike most serial killers who deny their crimes
