‘Why I killed Jeffrey Dahmer’: Christopher Scarver discusses killer’s death and ‘prison-wide plot’ for the first time.

In 1994, serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer finally got what was coming to him when fellow inmate Christopher Scarver beat him to death in a prison bathroom. Christopher Scarver, who was sentenced to two life terms in prison for killing Dahmer and another man at Columbia Correctional Institution in 1994, said the confessed cannibal would leave the fake limbs around the prison where others would find them. “He crossed the line with some people — prisoners, prison staff,” the newspaper quoted Scarver as saying. “Some people who are in prison are repentant — but he was not one of them.” “If he saw a guard that was nervous and standing near enough to hear him, he would say, ‘I bite,'” the newspaper quoted the pastor, Roy Ratcliff, as saying. “Usually the guard would jump away and that would make Jeff laugh.” “He sort of played with his persona to exaggerate it and make people more fearful,” Ratcliff said. “This was just his way — a morbid humor to deal with his hopeless situation.” He told the Post that he killed Dahmer and another inmate, Jesse Anderson, after an altercation while they were together unsupervised on a work detail.Christopher Scarver has for the first time talked about why he killed fellow prisoner Jeffrey Dahmer, who was serving 16 life sentences for the murder, rape and dismemberment of seventeen men and boys. In an interview with The Post last Friday, Scarver accused prison authorities of being involved in the murders, but refused to elaborate out of fear of retribution by Wisconsin officials.

Scarver said that he fatally struck Dahmer twice over the head with a metal bar after growing unnerved by the killer, who he claims would fashion severed limbs out of prison food and drizzle them with with packets of ketchup as blood. Despite his support for a new probe, Endicott said he does not believe that prison officials were complicit in the slayings — and that the original investigation found that Scarver had acted alone. But Endicott also said that two guards — Donovan Dittberner and Robert Theiler — were disciplined for leaving their posts in the gymnasium where Dahmer, Scarver and Anderson were on cleaning detail that fateful day in November 1994. So when he was left alone with Dahmer and Jesse Anderson, another inmate, on November 28, 1994, he claimed that he knew what corrections officers wanted him to do — and he did it. “They had something to do with what took place,” he argued.

Of course, the jokes get a little dark when you consider the fact that Dahmer murdered, molested, and (in some cases) ate 17 human, non-prison-food men between 1978 and 1991. Corrections officers, Endicott said, discovered a simulated penis made out of sausage and cheese inside Dahmer’s prison cell that he planned to use in one of his sick jokes.
