Who was Jeffrey Dahmer and what did he do?
Jeffrey Dahmer murdered and dismembered 17 males over a 13-year period before he was apprehended by authorities.
He would keep body parts as souvenirs, including skulls and genitals.
“He frequently took photos of his victims at various stages of the murder process, so he could recollect each act afterward and relive the experience,” according to Biography.com.
Dahmer was born in Milwaukee on May 21, 1960.

“He was described as an energetic and happy child until the age of four when surgery to correct a double hernia seemed to effect a change in the boy,” according to Biography.com.
“Noticeably subdued, he became increasingly withdrawn following the birth of his younger brother and the family’s frequent moves.
“By his early teens, he was disengaged, tense and largely friendless.”
After committing the grisly slayings he was arrested by Milwaukee police officers on July 22, 1991.
Dahmer would be convicted the following year and sentenced to 16 consecutive life terms in prison.

In the first image from the set, Peters wears blue jeans and a tucked-in button-down shirt, with eyeglasses, blond hair, and a face shield – amid coronavirus precautions.
In April, Peters explained to Variety how he had to pull back from digging too deep on the real-life story of Dahmer and instead commit to the scripts.

“I’ve read so much, I’ve watched so much, I’ve seen so much, and at a certain point, you’ve got to say, ‘All right, that’s enough,’” Peters told the outlet.
“There are beautifully written scripts. You can have all the backstory you want, but at the end of the day we’re not making a documentary.
“But, there’s so much material for Dahmer that I think it’s incredibly important to make it really authentic,” Peters added.
