Jeffrey Dahmer was a unique specimen defying the entire psychology of serial killers accepted. He was a killer and a sex killer, a choke and a dagger, a mutilator and a cannibal. He tracked down the gay scene of the 80s in Milwaukee, tackling a subset of this subset, inviting predominantly black men to return to a carpet of bachelor murder that smelled like the armpit of a juggalo.
Dahmer was trying, as far as one could judge, to create a zombie sex lover – someone who could meet his needs but had no will of his own. Think Lars and the real girl, if Lars worshiped men, and instead of buying a rubber sex doll, he drilled holes in the skulls of these men and poured acid into their brains.
In 1991, Konerak Sinthasomphone, a 14-year-old Laotian refugee, was found trailing near a naked, drugged and bleeding house near the Dahmer apartment by local women. The women called 911 for help from the boy. Upon arriving at the scene, two police officers, John Balcerzak and Joseph Gabrish, believed that Dahmer was a woman at the time of her arrival and claimed that the boy was her 19-year-old lover who had quarreled with him and was snuggled.
In reality, Dahmer had injected hydrochloric acid into the boy’s brain and the boy did not smell the alcohol. If the cops had done something as simple as asking for his ID card from Dahmer, they would have seen him on probation for sexual assault on a child (the older brother of Sinthasomphone in 1988). Instead, they took him back to Dahmer’s lair.
There, they said that nothing was wrong, except for a strong smell of rotting meat, which turned out to be due to the corpse in Dahmer’s room. They never checked to see if the boy was injured and called the ambulance that was getting ready (paramedics would obviously have found the hole in his head), saying it was not necessary. They told Dahmer to take good care of the child and they explained the incident on the radio. What a delightful anecdote for the boys returned to the station!
Dahmer would kill Sinthasomphone 30 minutes later. He would kill at least four other men before being caught.
He may not have the largest number on this list, but in terms of a cannibal serial killer persuading the police to pretend to be Instacart, Dahmer takes first place. Finally, after the horrific story was made public, the officers were released. Until they appeal the decision and be reinstated, that is to say. Finally, Balcerzak was elected president of the Milwaukee Police Association.
