Twenty years ago, serial killer and cannibal Jeffrey Dahmer was murdered in prison by an inmate. His name was Christopher Scarver. Recently, he came forth and explained his reason for killing Dahmer, saying that he despised him for his unrepentant ways and his obsession with blood, and was disgusted by him. They both arrived at the Columbia Correction Institution in 1992, Dahmer for the murder, rape, and cannibalism of 17 boys and Scarver for the murder of his boss. Dahmer had been sentenced to 16 life sentences.

According to Scarver, Dahmer would make his food look like human body parts and limbs, and then put ketchup on them to make them look like they were covered in blood. He would also often tease and taunt other prisoners. Scarver stated that Dahmer "crossed the line with some people - prisoners, prison staff. Some people who are in prison are repentant, but he was not one of them." Not wanting to become a target of Dahmer's taunting, Scarver would never talk to him or go near him, though he witnessed many heated interactions between Dahmer and other prisoners.

However, on November 28, 1994, they had their first - and last - interaction. Scarver, Dahmer, and another inmate by the name of Jesse Anderson were all made to clean a bathroom without any supervision, which was odd because Dahmer always had a guard with him due to the friction he had with everyone there. While Scarver was cleaning, he felt someone poke him in his back. He turned around and found both Dahmer and Anderson standing there "laughing under their breath."

Scarver then pulled out a newspaper article about Dahmer's crimes out of his pocket and asked him if the stories were true. Dahmer said yes, looking surprised that he'd just been asked that. "I asked him if he did those things because I was fiercely disgusted. He was shocked. He started looking for the door pretty quick. I blocked him," Scarver stated. It was then that he hit Dahmer in the head twice with a metal bar he'd grabbed from the weight room, crushing Dahmer's skull. “He ended up dead. I put his head down,” he stated. Afterward, he went to Anderson, who was serving a life sentence for the murder of his wife, and hit him in the head as well. Both Dahmer and Anderson died from the blows to their heads.

Scarver believes that the staff was in on the murder of Dahmer, that they had planned for it to happen. They knew how much Scarver hated Dahmer and then left him alone with Scarver. They have yet to comment on Scarver's allegation, however. Even if they do comment, I doubt they'll admit it. Scarver says that he served 16 years in solitary confinement for the prison murders. He is still in prison today, as he had been sentenced to two extra life sentences.
