Christopher Scarver murdered fellow inmate and infamous serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer in 1994 and never spoke of it again until 2015. More than 20 years later, Scarver offered chilling insights into the serial killer’s twisted behavior behind bars.

Scarver reportedly grew to despise 34-year-old Dahmer, who was serving 16 life sentences for the murder, rape, and dismemberment of 17 boys and men. Dahmer also admitted to acts of necrophilia and cannibalism, earning him the nickname the “Milwaukee Monster” or the Milwaukee Cannibal.”

Once behind bars, Dahmer allegedly taunted his fellow inmates, including Scarver. Dahmer reportedly arranged his meals to resemble body parts and slathered them with ketchup to mimic blood. Scarver, who is serving time for killing his boss during a robbery, insists that Dahmer did not feel any remorse for his crimes.

Scarver, Dahmer, and another inmate, Jesse Anderson, had a deadly showdown when Scarver snapped in 1994. Anderson and Dahmer were allegedly teasing Scarver while he was on cleaning duty. The three men were left alone, and Scarver cornered Dahmer, confronting him about his depraved crimes. Scarver then reportedly used a metal bar from the prison weight room to crush Dahmer’s skull, and also killed Anderson.

Scarver maintains that the prison staff wanted Dahmer dead and thus left the men alone. The prison did not comment on Scarver’s story.

Scarver spent 16 years in solitary confinement for the killings and is still serving three life terms.
