Jeffrey Dahmer, often known as “the Milwaukee Cannibal,” was one of the most infamous murderers in American history.

For killing and dismembering at least 17 men and boys between 1978 and 1991, Dahmer was apprehended and given a 16-life sentence in 1992.

What happened to Jeffrey Dahmer’s apartment?

Police in Milwaukee found 11 bodies in Apartment 213 at 924 North 25th Street, putting a stop to the serial killer’s sick reign of terror.

Dahmer lived in the apartment at the 49-unit Oxford Apartments complex for 14 months.

When it was prominently featured in Netflix’s Monster: The Dahmer Story, it attracted notice once more.

The apartment had a fridge, a cream sofa, a carpet roll, a fish tank in the living room, a bed, a tiny TV, a dresser, and a barrel of acid in the bedroom, according to FBI images acquired after Dahmer’s arrest in 1991.

The blood-stained apartment, which the New York Times referred to as the “killing factory,” was never rented out following Dahmer’s murderous rampage.

The building was removed at the families of the victims’ request, and Campus Circle Project, a “collaborative community revitalization programme,” purchased the property in 1995.

It was still empty in 2022.

When he was taken into custody, authorities found a grisly scene that included seven skulls, two hearts, pairs of severed hands, skeletons, and dismembered torsos, as well as Polaroid pictures of the victims, tools (saws, knives, and a drill), and acid.

While Dahmer’s trial was ongoing, the apartment remained unaltered.

A local civic group made the decision to purchase Dahmer’s auctioned possessions, including the fridge (where police discovered decapitated heads), needles, and knives, in order to keep them from becoming gory memorabilia.

The families of the victims received compensation in the form of the $407,225 obtained during the auction because Joseph Zilber, the leader of the civic organisation, burned the objects rather than keeping them.

At the time, Zilber stated that his goal was to “permanently remove these implements of death.”
