WISCONSIN : Group Has Destroyed Dahmer Artifacts

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Milwaukee business leaders said they have closed the book on Jeffrey L. Dahmer by destroying his instruments of death. The business group, appalled at the idea of a public auction, raised $407,225 to buy and immediately destroy the items, including saws, blades, handcuffs, a 57-gallon drum and the refrigerator in which victims’ body parts were stored. Dahmer confessed to killing, dismembering and sometimes cannibalizing 17 young men and boys before his 1991 arrest. He was beaten to death in prison by a fellow inmate in 1994. A spokesman refused to say how the items were destroyed.
