AFTER serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer was sentenced to prison for the murder of more than a dozen men and boys, he faced a similar brutal fate that one inmate said was directed by God.
Christopher Scarver, then 25, was admitted to Columbia Correctional Institution in Wisconsin around the same time as Dahmer in 1992 after being convicted of murdering and dismembering 17 men and boys from 1978 to 1991.
In a 2015 interview with the New York Post, Scarver revealed that he despised Dahmer while they were incarcerated, explaining that the madman mocked other inmates by sculpting body parts out of food and using ketchup as blood.
“He would put them in places where people would be,” Scarver said.
“He crossed the line with some people – prisoners, prison staff. Some people who are in prison repent – but he wasn’t one of them.”
Scarver, who had served a life sentence for the murder of his former boss two years earlier, told the Post that Dahmer had so many interactions with other inmates that he needed an escort from a warden at all times.
While he claimed never to have interacted with him during their time in prison, Scarver revealed that on November 28, 1994, that changed.
That morning, Scarver, Dahmer, and a third inmate named Jesse Anderson were left unattended while cleaning the bathrooms.
Scarver claimed someone stabbed him in the back, and while he couldn’t say who did it, “Dahmer and Anderson were laughing softly” as he turned.
“I looked them straight in the eye and couldn’t tell who did it,” he told the Post.
Soon after, Scarver and Dahmer moved into “a staff locker room,” according to the report, where Scarver brought a metal bar from the weight room.
There Scarver confronted Dahmer about the 17 murders and said he was “deeply disgusted”.
“He started looking for the door pretty quickly,” Scarver said in the 2015 interview. “I blocked him.”
Dahmer was then hit twice in the head with the metal rod. He succumbed to his injuries in hospital a little later.
Shortly after attacking Dahmer, Scarver entered a locker room where Anderson had been working.
“He stopped for a second and looked around,” Scarver revealed. “He checked to see if any officers were there. There was none. Pretty much the same [happened] – got his head stretched out.”
At the time, Scarver confessed to the murders and said God told him to do it.
In his interview with The Post, he confirmed that the incident was not an accident and hinted that prison officials may have left him with Dahmer on purpose.
“They had something to do with what happened. Yes,” he said.
After confessing to the murders, Scarver was sentenced to two more life terms.
Scarver, now 53, remains behind bars after the 1994 murders.
In April 2015, the convicted murderer released from prison a novel titled God Seed: Poetry of Christopher J. Scarver. The Amazon description describes the book as “a poetic vision of the world as seen through prison walls.”
His involvement in Dahmer’s death is coming back into the spotlight as Netflix has released a new limited series about the madman’s horrific crimes called Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story.
The 10-episode show stars American Horror Story’s Evan Peters as Dahmer, as well as former teen icon Molly Ringwald, Oscar-nominated actor Richard Jenkins and Claws in the lead role of Niecy Nash.
