ERROL Lindsey suffered an agonizing death at the hands of American serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer.
Jeffrey Dahmer, also known as “The Milwaukee Cannibal”, raped, murdered and dismembered 17 boys and men between the ages of 14 and 32 from 1978 to 1991.
Who was Errol Lindsey?
Errol Lindsey lived in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA and was just 19 years old at the time of his murder.
Those who knew him described him as an upstanding and generous person who loved helping others and enjoyed making new friends.
Errol was known as a young man who was very popular in his friends group and was very close to his family, especially his mother and sister.
What happened to Errol Lindsey?
Errol was reportedly sent on an errand to cut a key the day he was murdered, and along the way he crossed paths with Jeffrey Dahmer.
On April 7, 1991, Dahmer met Errol Lindsay and lured him back to his apartment.
There he drugged Errol and kept him alive to conduct a cruel experiment.
Dahmer drilled a hole in his head and poured hydrochloric acid into it, hoping to put the victim into a vegetative state – then murdered the 19-year-old.
He later decapitated Errol and disposed of his body.
Jeffrey Dahmer was arrested months later, on July 22, 1991, after one of his victims, Tracy Edwards, managed to escape and officers were led to his home.
After Dahmer was arrested in July 1991, police found Errol’s skull and identified the victim from dental records.
Who is Rita Islell?
Rita Isbell is the sister of Errol Lindsey.
After the brutal murder of her brother, Rita has spent the last 30 years coming to terms with his death.
In 1991, Rita Isbell sat in court listening to Dahmer claim insanity while his attorneys said he was “out of control” at the time of the murders.
She watched as the family members of Dahmer’s other victims went to the witness stand to confront him.
She described them as all teary-eyed and heads bowed, but she refused to do so.
As she neared the booth, she instead lunged at Dahmer, yelling that he’ll see “what’s out of control.”
She went on to say, “I never want to see her mother go through that again.”
Rita looked her brother’s killer straight in the eye and cried out, “I hate you Jeffrey” as sheriff’s deputies grabbed her and dragged her out of the courtroom.
She continued to yell obscenities and called Dahmer “Satan.”
After she left the courtroom, AP News reported, Isbell said of those who spoke before her, “They all just had to sit there and hold it.”
“What he saw in me… is what Errol would have done. The only difference is that Errol would have jumped over that table.”
Since Jeffrey Dahmer’s new documentary Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story aired on Netflix, video of Rita Isbell and Jeffrey Dahmer’s altercation has been viewed 259,000 times.
Isbell is played by DaShawn Barnes, who captures the moment with pinpoint accuracy.
But for the families of Dahmer’s victims, the documentary has brought back the pain and agony they endured all those years before.
In an interview with Insider, Rita herself called Netflix “money-hungry” for filming another series about Dahmer.
She claims she didn’t give permission for their altercation to be portrayed by an actor and she didn’t even find out until she saw the clip online.
She said: “When I saw part of the show it bothered me, especially when I saw myself.
“When I saw my name come up on screen and this lady literally say exactly what I said, I would have thought it was me if I didn’t know better.
“I was never contacted about the show. I feel like Netflix should have asked if we mind it or how we felt doing it. You didn’t ask me anything. They just did it.”
Rita went on to claim that none of the proceeds from the series went to the victims’ families.
Netflix has not yet commented on these allegations.
