Jeffrey Dahmer’s Childhood Home For Sale
The childhood home of Jeffrey Dahmer, where he killed and dismembered his first of 17 victims, is on the market. Police investigated the Akron, OH property after Dahmer’s 1991 arrest in Wisconsin, where they found the remains of a hitchhiker.
Now the updated mid century modern murder house at 4480 West Bath Rd in Akron, OH can be yours for $295,000.
In the summer of 1978 Dahmer’s parents were getting divorced. His father was staying at a local motel, and his mother moved with his younger brother to Chippewa Falls, WI. Then 18-year-old Jeffrey was living in the house by himself.
Just three weeks after his high school graduation, Dahmer picked up hitchhiker Steven Mark Hicks. They returned to the Dahmer home to drink beer. When Hicks decided he wanted to leave, Jeffrey bludgeoned him from behind with a ten pound dumbbell and then strangled him to death.
He dismembered the body in the crawl space the next day and buried the remains in the backyard. A few weeks later he dug them back up to remove the flesh, which he dissolved in acid and flushed down the toilet. He then crushed the bones with a sledgehammer.
