Jeffrey Dahmer’s House Was Located at Oxford Apartments at 924 North 25th Street, Apartment 213, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin: What Is on the Site of His Apartment Building Now? Photos & More!
According to FBI files, Jeffrey Dahmer lived in his house at Oxford Apartments at 924 North 25th Street, Apartment 213, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Additionally, he spent some time living at his grandmother's house, which is located at 2357 S 57th Street in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Dahmer mostly targeted gay men of color who he met at local bus stations, clubs, shopping centers, and adult bookstores. According to The New York Times, he would get the men to join him by offering beer or cash in exchange for them appearing naked. Dahmer would then drug the drinks of his victims before killing them. The newspaper at the time stated that he kept the body parts of many victims in his refrigerator and even consumed some of their parts. After being apprehended, Dahmer gave the police an explanation by saying, "I didn't want them to leave."
While living at the Oxford Apartments, Sopa Princewill, the building manager, received numerous complaints from his neighbors. Strange smells, stuff dropping, and even the sound of a chainsaw were all reported by the locals. But when questioned, Jeffrey Dahmer offered a bevy of explanations and justifications for the sounds and smells. He claimed that either his tropical fish had perished or his freezer had broken, causing the food to rot. The management didn't report the strange odors or noises to the authorities.
According to The New York Times, Dahmer's apartment was filled with weapons, which led law enforcement to believe it was a killing factory. Police discovered a barrel of hydrochloric acid, which he used to dissolve the men's bodies and preserve their skeletons, as well as ether and chloroform, which were likely used to sedate his victims. Three torsos were decomposing inside the 57-gallon barrel, according to the cops.
According to FBI documents, a total of 11 distinct beheaded and dismembered corpses were found in his house by the authorities. According to records, they also discovered a hypodermic needle, an electric drill, as well as several knives and sawblades.
Jeffrey Dahmer initially lived with his stepmother and his father when he was discharged from the army in 1981 as a result of excessive drinking. According to Distractify, Jeffrey continued to consume alcohol in large quantities before being taken into custody for disorderly behavior. After that, Jeffrey's father transferred him to Wisconsin to live with his grandmother, Catherine Dahmer. From then, things worsened further.
Jeffrey had started killing by 1987. According to Biography, he murdered Steven Tuomi, his second victim, in a hotel room and then took the body back to his grandmother's house to dismember it. In addition to dismembering Steven Tuomi over the nine years he stayed with his grandmother, it is believed that he also killed three additional individuals there.
Eventually, in 1988, Jeffrey's grandmother asked him to leave her house, but he wouldn't leave until 1990. According to Distractify, at that time, the killings continued in Jeffrey's apartment on North 25th Street. At the time, Catherine was unaware of her grandson's misdeeds.
The Campus Circle Project, the owner of the apartments where Jeffrey Dahmer lived, decided to demolish the 49-unit Oxford complex in order to help the community. On November 16, 1992—the same year Dahmer was sentenced to 16 life terms in prison for his crimes—the demolition work got underway.
As of now, there are some trees and grass where Jeffrey Dahmer's apartment building formerly stood. The perimeter is surrounded by a black rot-iron fence, although there are no plants or a garden there. There have been no successful attempts to transform the area into a memorial garden, a playground, or new homes.
Additionally, Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story is now available on Netflix.
