Cannibal serial killer recalls trying to ‘zombify’ victims in chilling interview

Evil serial killer Jeffery Dahmer calmly described in gory detail his warped attempts to turn his victims into zombies in a chilling interview months after his capture.

Dahmer, dubbed the Milwaukee Monster, also told how he 'branched out', turning cannibal and eating parts of those he slaughtered so he felt they were 'part of him'.

In an unsettling TV interview filmed months after he'd been handed several life sentences, he detailed the bizarre experiments he carried out on his victims.

He got away with murder for over a decade but was handed 15 terms of life imprisonment in 1992 after his nauseating crimes were finally uncovered.

During his reign of terror between 1978 and 1991 he killed 17 boys and men in Milwaukee and Ohio, US.

It is now the subject of a new Netflix drama, Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story.

Dahmer, who would seduce, dismember and even eat some victims' organs and other body parts, kept their remains in freezers inside his home. Their skulls and skeletons were also retained.

He even took one victim’s dismembered head and kept it in a locker at work.

The monster made the disturbing admissions in an extraordinary TV interview in 1993 – just a year after he was jailed.

Dahmer told the interviewer Nancy Glass how he planned to turn the skulls and skeletons into an altar – a place where he could control his thoughts.

Although he knew what he was doing was wrong, he said he enjoyed having control and dominance over his victims.

“I always knew it was wrong,” he said.

“The first killing was not planned. I was coming back from the shopping mall back in '78. I’d had fantasies about picking up a hitchhiker and taking him back to the house and having complete control and dominance over him.”

“No one had a clue what was happening for a decade,” he added.

Dahmer would take pictures of his victims but that wasn’t enough as his compulsions were the “only thing that gave me satisfaction.”

The twister killer began trying to zombify his victims to keep them alive longer and prolong his dominance.

Dahmer continued: “I was branching out, that's where the cannibalism started – eating of the heart and the arm muscle, it was a way of making me feel that they were a part of me.

"At first it was curiosity and then it became compulsive, and then I tried to keep the person alive by inducing a zombie like state by injecting first dilute acid solution into their brain or hot water, and it never did completely work.

“I was dead set on going with this compulsion, it was the only thing that gave me any satisfaction.”

Dahmer is played by Hollywood actor Evan Peter in the new Netflix show.

The killer claimed his first victim three weeks after graduating from high school when he was 18-years-old.

His killing spree lasted for many years before he was finally caught after asking three boys to return to his apartment and pose for nude photos.

Dahmer was finally stopped when Tracy Edwards, who had been lured to his lair, managed to flee after being attacked.

Tracy was hailed a hero in July 1991 after he led the police to the home of horrors.

There, police found photos and parts of dismembered victims hidden in the apartment.

Officers were able to arrest Dahmer that day, finally ending the 13-year murder spree of the Milwaukee Monster.

On February 17, 1992, Dahmer was sentenced to 15 terms of life imprisonment. Two years into his service, he was killed at the age of 34 by inmate Christopher Scarver.

Dahmer was found alive with extreme head and facial injuries and was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead in November 1994.
