“Once home of Jeffrey Dahmer”

Jeffrey Lionel Dahmer also known as the Milwaukee Cannibal, was an American serial killer and sex offender, who committed the rape, murder and dismemberment of 17 men and boys between 1978 and 1991, with many of his later murders also involving necrophilia, cannibalism and the permanent preservation of body parts—typically all or part of the skeletal structure. Although diagnosed by psychologists and prison psychiatrists as suffering from a borderline personality disorder, Dahmer was found to be sane at his trial. Convicted of 15 of the 16 murders he had committed in Wisconsin, Dahmer was sentenced to 15 terms of life imprisonment on February 15, 1992. He was later sentenced to a 16th term of life imprisonment in relation to an additional homicide committed in the state of Ohio in 1978. Today, the place the Oxford Apartments once stood is an empty lot overgrown with grass. Thrill-seekers come by often to take pictures. It's a sad place with a horrifying past. What can be done with the land? Developer Ogden Homes purchased the property from the city for $500, and is forbidden from constructing any buildings on top of the land because of its grisly past. As part of the deal, the city stipulated that the developer reserve the area for green space, though it could be made into a parking lot.
