Serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer died behind bars while incarcerated for the horrific murder of seventeen men and boys.
Inmate Christopher Scarver beat the Milwaukee Cannibal to death at Columbia Correctional Institution in 1994.
Who is Christopher Scarver?
Christopher J. Scarver was born on July 6, 1969 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
He dropped out of high school in eleventh grade before struggling with alcohol addiction — when he saw his mom kick him out.
Scarver had landed a job as an apprentice carpenter under the Wisconsin Conservation Corps job program under the guise that he would be hired full-time upon graduation.
He claims he struck the deal with his supervisor, Edward Patts, who was later fired from his position.
As a result, permanent employment never materialized and he began drinking heavily again.
Scarver later decided to confront Patt’s replacement, Steve Lohman, on June 1, 1990 at the training program office.
He demanded money from the supervisor at gunpoint, but Lohman only offered him $15 when he saw Scarver throwing a tantrum.
The Milwaukee native shot his boss once in the head, killing him instantly before approaching construction supervisor John Feyen.
He again demanded more cash before firing two more shots at Lohman’s lifeless body.
Feyen handed the shooter a check for $3,000 and fled before the then 21-year-old was arrested by police.
He was convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison before being incarcerated at Columbia Correctional Institution in 1992.
Shortly after he was incarcerated, Scarver’s girlfriend gave birth to their son, also named Chris.
Where is Christopher Scarver now?
Scarver, now 53, remains behind bars after his triple murders.
He was sentenced to two more life terms for beating Jeffrey Dahmer and another convict to death in 1994.
He is serving his time at Centennial Correctional Facility in Canon City, Colorado.
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.”
What did Christopher Scarver say about Jeffrey Dahmer?
Around the same time that Scarver was incarcerated, Jeffrey Dahmer was also sentenced to life imprisonment in the same prison.
He confessed to despising the serial killer but “never interacted with him” — instead observing Dahmer’s bizarre behavior from afar.
However, he kept in his pocket a newspaper article detailing the cannibal’s disgusting crimes.
In a 2015 interview with the New York Post, Scarver claimed the maniac mocked other inmates by sculpting body parts out of food and using ketchup as blood.
He explained, “He would put them in places where people would be. He crossed the line with some people – prisoners, prison staff.
“Some people who are in prison regret it – but he wasn’t one of them.
“I’ve seen heated interactions between them [Dahmer] and other prisoners from time to time.”
On the morning of November 28, 1994, the couple were assigned to a work detail along with another inmate, Jesse Anderson.
The trio were tasked with cleaning the prison’s gymnasium toilets when correctional officers left them alone.
Scarver, then 25, thought the two men were taunting him and turned to see them “giggling softly”.
He and Dahmer then went to another room where he confronted the evil killer about his heinous crimes.
The father had armed himself with a metal bar from the weight room and told Dahmer he was “deeply disgusted” by his 17 murders.
He recalled: “I asked him if he did those things because I was deeply disgusted. He was shocked. Yes, he was.”
He described how the depraved cannibal began a frantic search for the door but blocked his exit – and dealt him two fatal blows with a 20-inch, 5-pound metal rod.
“He ended up dead. I put his head down,” the inmate said.
Scarver then crossed the gym and brought the same fate to Anderson, who was serving a life sentence for the 1992 murder of his wife.
After confessing to the murders, Scarver was sentenced to two more life terms.
