Who Was Raymond Smith?

Raymond Lamont Smith was born in 1957 and was just 33 years old at the time of his death.

Raymond, also known as “Ricky Beeks”, was a sex worker and not much is known about him.

He left a 10-year-old daughter after being brutally murdered.

The Milwaukee monster had been released from prison on second-degree sexual assault charges and moved from his grandmother’s house to a new apartment with his newfound freedom.

Within a week, on May 20, 1990, Dahmer met Mr Smith and lured him to his home at 213 Oxford Apartments, North 25th Street.

He offered him $50 in exchange for sex and when he entered the property he spiked the sex worker’s drink with sleeping pills.

It is reported that Mr Smith’s cause of death was strangulation and Dahmer then engaged in sexual acts with the corpse.

According to police reports, the victim’s body was also dismembered and decapitated when Dahmer tried to paint the skull grey.

This was later found in his fridge.

Dahmer wanted to display the remaining bones in his apartment as ornaments and cleaned them with an acid tank.

The serial killer has also taken polaroids showing the victim’s dead body in disturbing and suggestive positions.

Who were Jeffrey Dahmer’s other victims?

Dahmer was convicted of murdering 17 men and boys in a 13-year killing spree.

As Hicks was about to leave, Dahmer hit him with a 10 pound dumbbell and later confessed to hitting him twice from behind while he was sitting in a chair.

This knocked Hicks unconscious and Dahmer used the barbell’s bar to strangle him to death.
