Emotional side by side footage has compared Rita Isbell’s famous 1992 victim impact statement at Jeffrey Dahmer’s sentencing with the acted version in Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story.
Watch the clip below:
Isbell was the sister of 19-year-old Errol Lindsey, who was murdered by Dahmer in 1991 in a horrific manner.
After luring Lindsey back to his apartment, Dahmer drugged him before drilling a hole into his skull and pouring hydrochloric acid into it.
When Lindsey woke up complaining of a headache, Dahmer strangled him to death.
During her statement on February 18, 1992, Isbell screamed obscenities at Dahmer and called him ‘satan’ before charging at him.
She was restrained by numerous police officers as a recess was called.
Isbell told the court: “My name is Rita Isbell and I’m the older sister of Errol Lindsey. Whatever your name is Satan, I’m mad.
“This is how you act when you are out of control. I don’t want to ever see my mother have to go through this again. Never Jeffrey.”
She went on: “Jeffrey I hate you, motherf*****r. I hate you. This is out of control.”
Isbell was then restrained by police as she repeatedly threatened to kill Dahmer.
People were floored by the reenactment in Murphy’s new Netflix true crime show, starring Evan Peters, with one person writing beneath footage shared on Twitter: “Give her an Oscar!”
Another added: “Let’s start her Emmy campaign now, tho. She acting acting,” while a third echoed: “What great acting! Love it!”
“Gave me chills,” penned a fourth social media user, while a fifth added: “Well sheesh! I felt that. She need some more screenplay. Hello Lionsgate films, Tyler Perry?”
Speaking to AP back in 1992 about her outburst, Isbell said: “They [the other victims’ relatives] all had to just sit there and hold it in.
“What he saw out of me ... is what Errol would have done. The only difference is, Errol would have leaped over that table.″
Dahmer confessed to murdering at least 17 people, having evaded police throughout his killing spree, which spread over 13 years.
He was sentenced to 16 life sentences behind bars, but ended up being killed by another inmate in 1994.
