Who is Jeffrey Dahmer?

Jeffrey Lionel Dahmer, an American serial killer, is the focus of the movie. Dahmer worked at various jobs during the course of his life. He enlisted in the Army in 1979, but his alcoholism made it difficult for him to perform his duties as a medic, thus he was let go in 1981. 

After working as a phlebotomist, he ran a sandwich restaurant. After being unemployed for two years, he started working in a chocolate factory.

After inviting Tracy Edwards to his apartment and allegedly promising him money to remain, Dahmer was ultimately apprehended. Edwards attempted to flee, but Dahmer pursued him into a bedroom while brandishing a butcher knife.

After escaping, Edwards stopped a passing police vehicle and informed the cops inside about the event and the knife in Dahmer's bedroom.

When police entered the bedroom, they discovered pictures Dahmer had taken of the dead bodies and severed limbs of his victims. After a previously catastrophic record of letting him get away with it, they immediately arrested Dahmer.

Dahmer has killed numerous boys and girls. It is a descriptive description seen through the victim's eyes. Over the course of 13 years, Dahmer was found guilty of 15 counts of murder, the majority of which happened between 1990 and 1991 including:
