Man who killed Jeffrey Dahmer believes he was set up by prison guards to murder him

Man who killed Jeffrey Dahmer believes he was set up by prison guards to murder him

The man who murdered notorious serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer has claimed that prison guards had 'something to do' with his death.

Christopher Scarver, now 53, bludgeoned the killer to death back in 1994, just two years after he was convicted for the murder of 17 men and boys.

As reported by the New York Post, Scarver, who was already serving life in prison for murder, said that he grew to despise Dahmer for alluding to his cannibalism with his prison food.

The killer, also known as the Milwaukee Monster, allegedly fashioned the food into the shape of human limbs in a bid to deliberately upset his fellow inmates.

Scarver also claimed that he would worsen the taunts by using ketchup as blood.

"He would put them in places where people would be," the inmate claimed of the killer, who was 34 at the time of his death.

"He crossed the line with some people - prisoners, prison staff. Some people who are in prison are repentant - but he was not one of them."

Scarver claimed that Dahmer's relationship with the other inmates had deteriorated to the point where he needed a guard with him at all times for safety reasons.

"I saw heated interactions between [Dahmer] and other prisoners from time to time," he said, adding that he kept a distance from Dahmer to avoid being taunted by his twisted humour.

However, Scarver claims that he was deliberately put in Dahmer's path by prison guards so that he would have the opportunity to take his life.

He said that the day he killed Dahmer, he had a newspaper article about his crimes on his person and wanted to confront him to see if it was true.

The serial killer was left alone with Scarver and another inmate, Jesse Anderson, as they cleaned the prison bathrooms, and Scarver claims that one of them prodded him in the back.

"I turned around, and [Dahmer] and Jesse were kind of laughing under their breath," Scarver said. "I looked right into their eyes, and I couldn't tell which had done it."

When the three separated, Scarver followed Dahmer to confront him about his crimes and did so while wielding a metal bar from the prison gym.

"He started looking for the door pretty quick. I blocked him," Scarver said. "He ended up dead. I put his head down."

Scarver went on to take the life of Anderson, 37, by walking to the locker room where he had gone on to work, explaining: "He stopped for a second and looked around. He was looking to see if any officials were there. There were none. Pretty much the same thing [happened] - got his head put out."

When reflecting on the killings, Scarver is convinced that guards allowed it to happen by leaving the inmates alone.

"They had something to do with what took place. Yes," he said, but added that he could not say any more out of fear of repercussions.

"I would need a good attorney to ensure there would not be any retaliation by Wisconsin officials or to get me out of any type of retaliatory position they would put me in."
