During his three-year stint in prison, the infamous cannibalistic serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer became known for his twisted sense of humor.
“If he saw a guard that was nervous and standing near enough to hear him, he would say, ‘I bite.’ Usually, the guard would jump away and that would make Jeff laugh,” former minister Roy Ratcliff recalled.
Ratcliff also said Dahmer had put up a sign on the wall of his cell that read, "Cannibals Anonymous Meeting Tonight."
“He sort of played with his persona to exaggerate it and make people more fearful. This was just his way — morbid humor to deal with his hopeless situation.”
Little did Dahmer expect that his morbid humor would cost him his life.
On November 28, 1994, while cleaning the prison gymnasium toilet, convicted murderer Christopher Scarver bludgeoned the cannibal with a 20-inch metal bar. He then proceeded to beat another inmate, Jesse Anderson, who was assigned to work with the pair, with a wooden stick.
