Jeffrey Dahmer’s real-life apartment is harrowing to see for anyone who’s watched the series

Jeffrey Dahmer’s real-life apartment is frighteningly similar to the remake on Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story. Watch below to see a rare look at his apartment:

The Netflix series follows the story of prolific serial killer, Jeffrey Dahmer, who was convicted of the killing of seventeen men and boys between 1978 and 1991.

Although he was sentenced to 16 terms of life imprisonment in both Wisconsin and Ohio, Dahmer was beaten to death by a fellow inmate in 1994.

As shown in the clip above, those who've watched the series might recognise the design of his old apartment.

Located at the empty lot at apartment 213 of the Oxford Apartments, 924 North 25th Street in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, - it's where Dahmer drugged, strangled and dismembered many of his victims.

The beige, battered couch shown in the series looks exactly the same as the one he actually owned.

The producers did an accurate job in giving the viewers a realistic glimpse into Dahmer’s life, and this extended further than just the deco of his sinister apartment.

Dahmer was famed for not only being a killer, but was also cannibal - an element that wasn't dodged in the series.

The killer once explained in a a 1993 interview with Inside Edition why he started eating his victims, saying: "If I couldn't keep them there with me whole, at least I felt that I could keep their skeletons.

"Branching out, that's when the cannibalism started, eating of the heart and the arm muscle. It was a way of making me feel that they were a part of me."

One person commented: "His self awareness is what chills me to the bone, he knew exactly what he was doing and why he was doing it. That's the scariest part."

Another said: "The thing is, he would be seen as any normal person physically. The cold, disconnected way he describes it… it's chilling."

A third added: "How was she not scared to just sitting there and talking to him???? I was scared through the screen!!!!"

The synopsis for the series reads: "From the Emmy award winning creator of American Crime Story comes Dahmer - Monster: the Jeffrey Dahmer Story. The series examines the gruesome and horrific true crimes of Jeffrey Dahmer and the systemic failures that enabled one of America’s most notorious serial killers to continue his murderous spree in plain sight for over a decade."

Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story is available to watch on Netflix now.
