Jeffrey Dahmer Height: American serial killer and sex offender Jeffrey Lionel Dahmer, also referred to as the Milwaukee Cannibal or the Milwaukee Monster, murdered and mutilated seventeen men and boys between 1978 and 1991.
Despite having been given diagnoses for borderline personality disorder, schizotypal personality disorder, and a psychotic disorder, Dahmer’s legal sanity was determined during his trial.
He was found guilty of 15 of the 16 murders he had committed in Wisconsin, and on February 17, 1992, he was sentenced to 15 terms of life in prison. Later, for a second murder committed in Ohio in 1978, Dahmer was given a sixteenth life sentence.
Jeffrey Dahmer Height / How tall was Jeffrey Dahmer?
Jeffrey Dahmer stood at 6 ft 0 in, or 185.0 cm. In his police and prison mug shots, he seems to hover around the 6″ mark, but we can only assume his thatch of blonde hair made it look like he was slightly over the 6 foot mark.
He certainly wasn’t the tallest serial killer ever. Ed Kemper stood an enormous 6 ft 10!
How old was Jeffrey Dahmer when he died?
On November 28, 1994, Christopher Scarver beat Jeffrey Dahmer to death with a gym weight while he was 34 years old. They were both convicts at the Wisconsin’s Columbia Correctional Facility. He claimed to the New York Post that Dahmer had turned his jail food into limb forms and covered it in ketchup as a way of poking fun of him and other prisoners.
He said: “I asked [Dahmer] if he did those things [killing and eating men] ’cause I was fiercely disgusted. He was shocked. Yes, he was. He started looking for the door pretty quick. I blocked him. He ended up dead. I put his head down.”
Scarver smashed him twice over the head, crushing his skull. Dahmer was dead before arriving at hospital.
