Convict murdered cannibal killer Jeffrey Dahmer ‘because he kept making severed limbs out of prison food’

The man who murdered cannibal killer Jeffrey Dahmer while they were both in prison has revealed he attacked him because the notorious murderer kept taunting inmates with ‘severed limbs’ he had constructed out of pieces of food.

Convicted murderer Christopher Scarver, 45, beat Dahmer to death with a metal bar in a Wisconsin prison in 1994 where they were both serving life sentences.

Dahmer, who was already a convicted sex offender, was sent to prison after he confessed to killing 17 men and boys between the ages of 14 to 33. His brutal murders, which spanned a decade from 1978, included rape, torture, dismemberment, necrophilia and cannibalism.

Scarver told the New York Post that Dahmer was clearly ‘unrepentant’ in prison and would clash with many other prisoners. He said he would taunt fellow inmates and prison officers by fashioning limbs from pieces of food and drizzling ketchup so it would look like blood.

‘He would put them in places where people would be,’ said Scarver.

‘He crossed the line with some people — prisoners, prison staff.’

Scarver, a convicted killer himself, was previously said to be in talks with publishers about a book explaining his life behind bars with Dahmer and why he decided to mete out his own vigilante justice. He was said to have previously told sources that prison guards and inmates were subjected to Dahmer’s ‘sick, sadistic mind games and practical jokes.’

Scarver said he was disgusted when he read about the murders Dahmer had committed, and one day when they were left alone confronted him about it.

Both Dahmer – who became known as the Milwaukee Cannibal – and Scarver were sent to Wisconsin’s Columbia Correctional Institution at about the same time in 1992.

Dahmer was said to be escorted by a prison guard at all times because of the nature of his crimes until one occasion in 1994 when Scarver claims he was left alone with him and another prisoner, Jesse Anderson, whom he also killed.

Scarver was in prison for shooting a co-worker in the head after demanding money from him.

In November 1994 Scarver attacked Dahmer in a gymnasium with a 5lb metal bar and beat him around the head, crushing his skull.

He later also killed Anderson, who was in prison for murdering his wife, in the same way.
