The evil deeds of Jeffrey Dahmer shocked the world when his crimes were first unearthed and now Netflix is placing the serial killer into the spotlight in its latest drama series.
Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story explores the life of the Milwaukee Cannibal, detailing his childhood, his horrifying killing spree and eventually, his time behind bars.
In 1994, Dahmer was killed in prison by a fellow inmate and with the release of this new Netflix series, viewers have been left wondering how old the serial killer would be today in 2022.
Jeffrey Dahmer was born on May 21, 1960, which means that when he committed his first murder in June 1978, he was just 18 years old.
The killing of Steven Hicks took place just weeks after Dahmer graduated from high school.
Dahmer would not kill again until the murder of Steven Tuomi in November 1987, at which point the serial killer was 27 years old.
Over the next four years, the Milwaukee Cannibal would go on to kill another 15 victims until he was finally arrested at the age of 31 on July 22, 1991.
Dahmer was 34 years old when he was killed by a fellow inmate at Columbia Correctional Institution in Wisconsin.
After being arrested in 1991, Dahmer admitted to his crimes and pleaded guilty to 15 counts of murder in Milwaukee and a 16th in Ohio, resulting in him receiving 16 life sentences.
After three years of incarceration, Dahmer was killed on the morning of November 28, 1994, by Christopher Scarver who beat the serial killer using a metal bar.
Jeffrey Dahmer would be 62 years old if he was still alive as of the release of Netflix’s Monster series in September 2022.
Had Dahmer not been killed, he would still be in jail today as his 16 life sentences equated to an enormous 957 years of prison time according to Crime Museum.
With such a long sentence and no chance of parole, Dahmer would have died in prison regardless of the actions of Christopher Scarver.
Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story is available to stream now on Netflix after releasing on Wednesday, September 21, 2022.
