Netflix released its latest true-crime series this Wednesday. Titled Dahmer - Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, it is a 10-episode retelling of one of the most notorious serial killers in modern history, Jeffery Dahmer. American Horror Story and X-Men star Evan Peters plays the lead role as the man the media called the Milwaukee cannibal. So for today’s Now You Know podcast, we take a look at some of the lesser-known facts about the deranged killer.

  1. In most stories about serial killers, it is often conveyed that serial killers tend to feel the urge to harm and kill animals at a young age. Jeffrey Dahmer showcased this very trait when he was a teenager and supposedly had a collection of dead animals and bones.
  2. Dahmer killed his first human victim in the year 1978, immediately after he graduated from high school. He picked up a local hitchhiker named Steven Hicks and brought him back to his cabin with the promise of alcohol. But when Hick decided to leave, Dahmer attacked him and strangled him to death. He would go on to kill 17 people in total.
  3. Dahmer started drinking from a very young age, while he was still in school. In fact, his alcoholism would cost him his place at Ohio State University where he intended to pursue a degree in business management.
  4. He would later enroll with the US army and train in San Antonio Texas to become a combat medic. He served in West Germany during the Cold War but was discharged from service due to substance abuse issues.
  5. It wasn’t until 1987 did Dahmer go on a killing spree that continued till his arrest in 1991. After killing his second victim, Steven Walter Tuomi, at the Ambassador Hotel in Milwaukee in 87’, Dahmer stopped suppressing his urges to kill.
  6. Dahmer’s most heinous act was called the ‘drilling technique’. He would drill holes in the victim’s skull to inject hydrochloric acid into the brain. He believed that this would keep them alive in a catatonic state. Dahmer practiced this horrifying act for the first time in 1991 on 19-year old Errol Lindsey. He would continue this with all his subsequent victims.
