Yes, Christopher Scarver, who killed Jeffrey Dahmer in prison, is still alive in 2022, He is currently imprisoned at the Centennial Correctional Facility in Colorado. As of now, he is 53 years old. As many Reddit users wanted to know, Christopher Scarver killed Jeffrey because he was sick of Jeffrey's behavior and believed God wanted him dead. 

The new 10-part documentary series on Netflix, Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, explores the life and deeds of infamous serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer. Between 1978 and 1991, Dahmer, also known as the Milwaukee Cannibal, killed and dismembered 17 men and boys. The serial killer was also known to eat their remains on occasion.

Over the course of ten episodes, the series, which starts with his arrest, explains to viewers how he got started on his murdering rampage and all the circumstances that allowed his crimes to go unpunished for so long. He was ultimately captured in 1991 and given many life terms, making sure he would never be released from prison.

However, a number of individuals, including some who were in prison, had turned against him because of the horrifying depth of his actions. Other prisoners twice attacked Dahmer while he was in prison. He survived the first one but was unable to survive the second one when Christopher Scarver brutally attacked him. Similarly, many Reddit users have been wanting to know if Christopher is still alive in 2022. Well, let's find it out.

Christopher Scarver, Who Killed Jeffrey Dhamer, Is Still Alive and Imprisoned at the Centennial Correctional Facility in Colorado: Why Did He Kill Jeffrey in Prison? How Old Is He Now? Reddit Update!

Yes, Christopher Scarver, 53, is still alive. He is currently imprisoned at the Centennial Correctional Facility in Colorado. Before he killed Jeffrey Dahmer and Jesse Anderson, he had already been serving time in prison. He was then given a sentence of two further life sentences in jail.

When he met Jeffrey Dahmer, Christopher Scarver was already serving a life term at the Columbia Correctional Institute in Wisconsin for the murder of his supervisor. Christopher, Anderson, and Dahmer had been on a regular work detail at the prison gym on November 28, 1994. Scarver beat both Dahmer and Anderson to death while they were left alone for twenty minutes.

Around 8:10 a.m., Dahmer was discovered beaten and bleeding on the gym's bathroom floor. After being taken to the hospital immediately, he was declared dead an hour later. Two days later, Anderson passed away from his injuries and died as well. It was discovered that a 20-inch metal bar had assaulted both of them.

Christopher Scarver put the bar back on the exercise machine he had taken it from and headed to his cell. Later, he said he was sickened by Dahmer's acts and thought the serial murderer was not sorry. He claimed that Dahmer intended to use the food to form limbs and other body parts and that ketchup would serve as blood. He explained,

He would put them in places where people would be. He crossed the line with some people — prisoners, prison staff. Some people who are in prison are repentant — but he was not one of them.

Christopher Scarver also said that he was poked in the back before attacking Dahmer and Anderson. He said, "I turned around, and [Dahmer] and Jesse were kind of laughing under their breath. I looked right into their eyes, and I couldn’t tell which had done it."

Scarver, who allegedly sang as he entered the courtroom, informed the investigators that the attack was not planned in advance. He said that all he was doing was simply submitting to the will of God and that he was simply a tool used by the spirit.  Some have also suggested that the racial overtones of Dahmer's and Anderson's actions served as the trigger for Scarver's rage.

While Anderson attempted to place the blame for his wife's death on two black men, the majority of Dahmer's victims were people of color. Christopher Scarver, himself a black guy, must have been furious at their behavior. But there is no evidence to support this notion. He continued, "I would need a good attorney to ensure there would not be any retaliation by Wisconsin officials or to get me out of any type of retaliatory position they would put me in." Scarver now claims that one of the causes of his mental condition, which has been examined by multiple jail specialists, is the food within the prison.

Christopher Scarver stated in 2012 that he intended to write a book outlining his motivations for killing Dahmer, as well as specifics like Dahmer's final words to him. He had been in discussions about a book deal with certain publishers, but nothing has happened as of yet. A Mind is a Terrible Thing to Waste, Pain: Poetry of Christopher J. Scarver, The Child Left Behind: Poetry of Christopher J. Scarver, and others are among the poetry collections that Scarver has written and self-published in the meantime.
