  • Interview with Dahmer's Parents on Dr.Phil

    The interest in the life of serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer, sparked by recent media releases about him, led to Dr. Phil McGraw to do a three part interview this week with Dahmer's dad and other winesses related to the case. This is apparently the first interview from the senior Mr. Dahmer.

    I watched two of the segments, and was interested to see that Jeffrey's dad thought his young son's interest in dead animals and collecting road kill carcasses wasn't particularly an abnormal hobby. He claimed not to know until Jeffrey's "so-called insanity trial" that the boy would examine, dissect, and actually handle the entrails of the carcasses.

    Mr. Dahmer said there was an incident when his son was older and had a locked wooden box in his closet. He wanted to look in there, but Jeffrey convinced him to put off doing that to the next day. When he was allowed to see the box's contents, it only had pornography magazines and so forth. Apparently, Jeffrey himself had said that "the jig would have been up" if his dad had opened it the first time "because there was a human head in there."

    Also on the program were two military veterans who had encountered Dahmer during service and were survivors of assaults by him.

    A criminal psychology expert said there are two types of serial killers: sociopaths who are "made" by extreme abuse and psychopaths who are born with "chink in their psyche's DNA" that makes them unable to feel like a normal person. Her book is "Killer Psyche" and her first name is Candice.

    FYI:

    Title should read "Interview with Dahmer's parents on Dr. Phil"

    I can't find a way to correct the error which appears there now.
