So being from Milwaukee, we are known for a lot things like: Beer ;D, cows, packers,cheese....and unfortunately the legendry Serial Killer Jeffrey Dahmer....I drove pass his old Apartment building which is a fenced in lot now. My boyfriend and I searched the web one day wondering where exactly the building once stood. the apartment if you didnt know was torn down right after they arrested him. We found the area but, it was hard to know exactly where it was for a sec as it's all unmarked over there and that includes houses/building numbers. I know the city probably did that on purpose. anywoo, it's just an opened field, but fenced in with a pad lock.
so my question is....Has anyone heard of any stories of Dahmer haunting the area neighborhoods or buildings?

My brother met him, years ago, due to his job. Said he was freaky... and all he did was grind his teeth and crack his neck and crack his nuckles. This was enroute to and from the Milw. Courthouse and his *Home*.
I wonder what became of the inmate that killed him?

well i did a search on the guy who killed J.Dahmer and here is what Wikipedia.org says:
Jesse Anderson (1957–1994) was an American murderer who was bludgeoned to death in prison in the same incident as serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer. Anderson died just days after Dahmer when doctors at the University of Wisconsin Hospital in Madison removed him from life support.
Anderson was serving a life sentence for killing his wife, whom he stabbed 21 times in August 1992. Anderson had blamed two black men for attacking him and his wife (both white) as they left a Milwaukee restaurant. Anderson presented police with a Los Angeles Clippers basketball cap he claimed to have knocked off the head of one of the assailants. When details of the crime and the cap were made public, a local teenager told police Anderson had purchased the hat from him a few days earlier. Anderson eventually confessed to the crime.
Prison officials held 25-year-old Christopher Scarver as the sole suspect in the murders of Dahmer and Anderson. Scarver, who is black, was being reported as being hostile toward whites, and since both Dahmer's and Anderson's crimes affected blacks, officials did not rule out racial retaliation.

Thanks for posting this, Hollyberries! I could not even remember the names that were involved with Dahmer's death... and I live less than 2 miles away.
Darkman -- if you live so close to there, I think you should go stalk the grounds near by, develop an excuse to go there with a digital camera, a Geiger counter and a digital voice recorder... Whatdoyathink?
don't know of the inmates there , they might be dangerous. What if someone did catch me??? yes we do have 2 digital cameras. I have driven by there a few times myself, even seen it on the amtrak en route to chicago.

I used to drive to Taycheedah and stand in the ditch and watch the prisoned people in the yard... this was when Lawrencia Bembenek was housed there, remember that name?
Brown County Correctional Institute -- I was lost in Green Bay about 2 years ago, and was close to the building. I drove in the driveway, wanted to see the building closer. I was without a camera, but was in awe of the structure of the building... until One Of Them drove past on a riding lawn mower with the guard/employee. They looked scary, and within minutes I was back on the highway.
I don't get scared easily, but it's stories that I have heard over time that wake me up. Not to mention, the guys in my family deal with law/police/detective work...
I know one of the men who was at the scene the night Dahmer was arrested. He told me he actually got to walk through the house and saw everything. I guess there were acid tanks he used to put the bodies in, and body parts in the fridge, he also said there was a torso chained up next to the bed. I know this person likes to exaggerate on some things, but that's all I know.
I'm interested to see if there ARE any hauntings in the vacant lot that was the location of Dahmer's apartment building.
For that matter, I'm also interested in seeing if perhaps Christine Schultz still haunts her house from her murder (yep, the Laurie "Bambi" Bembenek case....I don't think she did it).
On a personal note....I am in Milwaukee about once or twice a year. Went past the vacant lot my 2nd time in town (my ex-mother in law drove me past it....it was creepy). I also have a sportscard dealer I do business with, and she was Dahmer's social worker...she said he was ultra lazy and was very open about his sexual orientation. Eventually, he was fired from his job because she caught him sleeping during work hours. And this last time I was in town, I drove past the Schultz house on my way to my motel (you can see it on the south side of the road, to the right of southbound I-94 as you head south, the first overpass past the Airport exit).

My brother met Dahmer. Had to be one of two (police officers) who tranported him from Portage to Milwaukee. The whole trip to and from, he made gutteral noises and cracked his bones (knuckles, neck, whatever) and did not talk at all. At that point, he probably was *quite out of it* as for being locked up for a while...
The year after the discovery of Dahmer and his crime, I read the books on him. A few years after that, my brother had to transport him. A few years after that, I read the book that Dahmer's father (Lionel) had wrote on his son...
I just cannot imagine being a relative or former friend or neighbor. It creeps me out...
