What happened to Jeffrey Dahmer’s furniture?

In the series, we learn that the police caught him after finding footage of his victims inside his wardrobe. Upon investigation, they came across several skeletons, body parts and other belongings of the victim.

While Jeffrey was immediately arrested, his apartment remained untouched during the trial. As soon as the verdict was announced, it was reported that all of Jeffrey’s belongings were planning to be sold.

There were fears that memorabilia hunters would want to buy the murderous tools he used to torture victims, writes The Independent. However, the horrible Jeffrey Dahmer ‘murder’ auction was won by someone else.

According to the Washington Post, the Milwaukee civic group purchased the items for $407,225. The group’s boss, Joseph Zilber, decided to buy items like a refrigerator, knives, hypodermic needles and other items to destroy them.

In turn, the victims’ families were also compensated.

As seen in the series, people were asked to leave the apartment, and it was eventually demolished.

There were several discussions about what should be built on that site afterwards.

While there were talks about bringing in a park, it never came to fruition. According to Yahoo, the land still remains empty.

After the building was demolished in 1992, the land was purchased by the Campus Circle Project for $325,000.

Does the building where Jeffrey Dahmer worked still exist?

Jeffrey used to work at the Ambrosia chocolate factory. However, he was eventually fired from the job for not showing up, something the show doesn’t cover.

The building also no longer exists, as it was demolished in 1993. The company then moved to a new area.

Jeffrey Dahmer received 15 consecutive life sentences for brutally murdering 15 men in 1992. In total, Dahmer admitted to killing 17 men and boys between 1978 and 1991.

On November 28, 1994, Dahmer was beaten to death by Christopher Scarver, a fellow inmate at Columbia Correctional Institution in Portage, Wisconsin. Scarver was sentenced to life in prison for killing Dahmer in prison.
