Serial killer and cannibal Jeffrey Dahmer apparently used his reputation to gain respect and fear among fellow inmates – and prison guards.


Pastor Roy Ratcliff, Dahmer’s former minister, told the New York Post how the serial killer loved seeing jail guards avoid him upon telling them two words: “I bite.”

“Usually the guard would jump away and that would make Jeff laugh,” Ratcliff, 68, said.

Dahmer admitted raping, murdering, and dismembering seventeen males between the years 1978 and 1991. He also confessed having sex with several of the dead victims’ bodies.

Ratcliff also narrated that Jeffrey once placed a sign on his cell that read, “Cannibals Anonymous Meeting Tonight.”

Dahmer confessed to the pastor that he ate a bicep from only one of his victims.

“However, when he was arrested and they found body parts in the freezer — a heart and a liver — he told me that he was ‘saving them to eat for later.’”

Dahmer was murdered by a fellow prisoner named Christopher Scarver in 1994. The Post also ran a story on Sunday detailing how and why Scarver murdered the famous cannibal.

“I asked him if he did those things ’cause I was fiercely disgusted,” Scarver recounted, pertaining to a news story he carried with him the day of the murder. “He was shocked. Yes, he was.”

“He started looking for the door pretty quick. I blocked him.”

Scarver killed Dahmer in the staff locker room with just a couple swings of a metal bar.
