Dead of the Day: Jeffrey Dahmer, May 21, 1960 – November 29, 2017

Who embodies death more than serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer? Also called the Milwaukee Cannibal, one of the most famed serial killers of all time (a dubious honor) hideously raped, murdered and dismembered 17 men and boys during his reign of terror. Not even particularly popular in prison in Wisconsin, Dahmer was murdered himself, in the big house, in 1960.
