In the life of Tracy Edwards after escaping torture by Jeffrey Dahmer, including murder charges in the death of a homeless man

MIT JEFFREY Dahmer is back in the headlines this week following the release of Netflix’s new limited series Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story. Dahmer’s latest victim – and his criminal history that followed his narrow escape – is back in the limelight.

One night in 1991, Tracey Edwards was invited to Dahmer’s house to see The Exorcist and have a drink.

Shortly thereafter, Dahmer handcuffed Edwards and threatened him with a knife. Edwards later claimed that Dahmer also brought him into the bedroom and said he wanted to eat Edward’s heart.

During the evening, Edwards managed to escape Dahmer’s home and rushed to report him to the police.

While his heroic and narrow escape led to Dahmer’s arrest, confession and conviction, twenty years later Edwards was charged with the murder of a homeless man.

According to ABC News, Edwards was arrested and charged with throwing a man, Jonny Jordan, to his death from a bridge in Wisconsin in July 2011.

Edwards was also homeless at the time and had reportedly been since 2002.

The charges were related to an apparent argument between Edwards, Jordan and another homeless man, Timothy Carr, on the bridge. A witness reportedly said Edwards and Carr pushed Jordan off the bridge, ABC News reported.

In January 2012, Edwards was sentenced to just a year and a half in prison after pleading guilty to assisting a felon in a plea agreement with prosecutors, per Fox News.

Edwards had several run-ins with the law throughout his life and was arrested for drug possession, theft, vandalism, failure to pay child support and skipping bail, according to ABC News.

Immediately after Dahmer’s arrest, Edwards was also indicted by a grand jury on charges of sexual assault against a 14-year-old girl in Lee County, Mississippi, according to the Associated Press.

Very little has been reported about Edwards in recent years.

His escape from Dahmer marked the end of a long killing spree by the serial killer, who killed and dismembered 17 men and boys between 1978 and 1991.

Despite the horrific nature of Dahmer’s crimes, he has continued to receive massive media attention in recent years.

Shaun J. Brown, 35, known for his work on The Great Indoors, will play Edwards.

Dahmer's horrifying crimes will be featured in Netflix's new limited series: "Monsters: The Story of Jeffrey Dahmer."
