Inside Jeffrey Dahmer’s obsession that led him to wear yellow contact lenses and aviator sunglasses favored by serial killers

JEFFREY Dahmer’s glasses were inspired by his fascination with the Gemini Killer and Emperor Palpatine, one author said.

Self-published author Gisela K., who studied Dahmer and his case for her book The Milwaukee Monster, told The US Sun that Dahmer became obsessed with the antagonists of The Exorcist III and Star Wars.

Self-published author Gisela K, who studied Dahmer for her book, told The US Sun that he wore yellow contacts “to literally get into character and go to the gay bars to find his next victim.”

Dahmer wore bright yellow contacts “to literally get into character and go to the gay bars to find his next victim,” she said.

“Exorcist III became a key issue at his trial because it was his favorite movie, which he watched at least two to three times a week for about six months before he was caught,” Gisela wrote in her book.

“It was released in the US in August 1990 and he paid over $100 to have it in his possession.

“He was so well received by the main antagonist, the Gemini Killer, that he bought yellow contact lenses to look and feel like him.”

Gisele said Dahmer would obsessively talk about the films on his lunch breaks while he was working at a chocolate factory.

“FBI profiler Robert Ressler argued that Dahmer’s interest in the film was about the power of the possessed over the minds and bodies of the rest of the world and over reality,” Gisele wrote in her book.

During a police interrogation following his 1991 arrest, Dahmer told investigators that The Exorcist III was his favorite film.

He said the film “helped fit his imagination” and that it could “create illusions,” according to FBI documents reviewed by The US Sun.

He held his final victim, Tracy Edwards, at knife point and forced him to watch The Exorcist with him before Edwards escaped and told police about Dahmer, ultimately leading to the killer’s arrest.

By that time, he had killed 17 people, and he told investigators he kept hunting to satisfy his urges, according to FBI documents.

After his arrest, police found human skulls, hearts, a bag of organs and numerous severed body parts at his home.

GLASSES PART OF THE SERIAL KILLER LOOK

The glasses look has been part of many well-known serial killer looks over the years.

Hitc.com has compiled a list of other serial killers who wore aviator goggles during their killing spree.

Scottish killer Dennis Nilsen, who murdered at least 12 young men and boys in London between 1978 and 1983, wore aviator goggles.

Dennis Rader, also known as BTK, who murdered 10 people in Wichita and Park City, Kansas between 1974 and 1991, also wore aviator goggles.

British serial killer Harold Shipman, who had an estimated 250 victims, and the unidentified Zodiac Killer also wore similar frames.

DAHMERS BACKGROUND STORY

Dahmer was known as “The Milwaukee Cannibal” and murdered 17 people between 1978 and 1991. He usually found his victims in gay bars or a mall.

Dahmer cut up most of his victims, kept body parts as trophies, and cannibalized some of his victims for sexual gratification, he told investigators, according to FBI documents.

Dahmer lured his victims – almost all of whom were either Hispanic or Black and part of LGBT communities – back to his apartment and offered to pay them for nude photos.

His apartment was equipped with $400 worth of security cameras, according to FBI documents, and had various locks on the bedroom, bathroom, and front door.

Once inside, he followed a similar MO that began sneaking tranquilizers into his victims’ drinks.

In the FBI files, Dahmer said he used fans to try and get rid of the smell, which was a key part of the Netflix series because his neighbor Glenda Cleveland couldn’t escape the smell coming in through the air vents.

Dahmer was eventually arrested on July 22, 1991 after one of his victims, Tracy Edwards, escaped and led officers to his home.

Searching his home, officers discovered a nightstand drawer full of disturbing Polaroid photos of his victims and their dismembered bodies.

As of September 14, 1991, he was charged with 16 murders, many of which were committed at his home in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Dahmer received 16 consecutive life sentences, most recently in May 1992, for the murder of his first victim, hitchhiker Steven Hicks, 18.

Fellow inmate Christopher Scarver murdered Dahmer in prison in February 1992.
