Following the huge success of the true crime drama, Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, on Netflix comes Conversations with a Killer: The Jeffrey Dahmer Tapes, a three-part documentary that takes viewers into the mind of one of the most notorious killers of recent times.

What was found in Jeffrey Dahmer's apartment?

When the Milwaukee police got to Jeffrey Dahmer's apartment in July of 1991, they uncovered the grisly personal museum of a serial killer: a freezer full of human heads, skulls, bones and other human remains in various states of decomposition and display.

Dahmer confessed to sixteen murders in Wisconsin that had taken place over the previous four years, plus one more in Ohio back in 1978, as well as unimaginable acts of necrophilia and cannibalism.

The grim discovery shocked the nation and stunned the local community, who were incensed that such a depraved killer had been allowed to operate within their city for so long.
