Three True Tales of All-American Cannibals

Jeffrey Dahmer mug shot

Long ago, the Algonquian tribes of northeastern North America passed on tales of the horrible creature that they called the Wendigo. According to the legend, a person who was consumed by greed could transform into a twisted monster with an insatiable taste for human flesh. The Wendigo’s bloodthirsty, cannibalistic rampages are exclusively limited to the realm of fiction, but horrifying and all-too-real accounts of cannibalism still pop up from time to time in the United States:

WARNING! These tales of American cannibals are true and gruesome: Read at your own risk….

Jeffrey Dahmer

Here’s a name that you may have heard before, but what was his story, and what has he done to become so infamous?

This subhuman beast specifically targeted gay men, mostly African Americans, and lured them to his home with the promise of sex or money. From 1978 to 1991, Jeffrey would offer his victims alcohol, strangle them, and rape their corpses.

His title of “The Milwaukee Cannibal” wasn’t earned just because the vast majority of his murders were committed in Wisconsin. Jeffrey Dahmer dismembered and disemboweled many of his victims, who were placed in his refrigerator and freezer for later consumption. He had a collection of horrific Polaroid photographs that documented his depraved obsessions with murder, mutilation, and eating his 17 known victims.

Thankfully Dahmer was arrested in 1991, sentenced to life in prison in 1992, and was savagely beaten to death by a fellow inmate in 1994.
