Dahmer’s Killer Looking for a Book Deal

According to TMZ a representive for Christopher Scarver has been contacting book publishers. He wants to write a tell all book! ?

Christopher Scarver

 Christopher Scarver is the prisoner that beat Jeff Dahmer and Jesse Anderson (killed his wife) to death in 1994 using a broom in the bathroom / locker room. Scarver was in prison at the time for killing a co-worker.

From Wikipedia:

On June 1, 1990, he (Scarver) went to the training program office, expecting to find only the site manager John P. Feyen there, but saw Steve Lohman, the supervisor who had replaced Patts. Scarver ordered Lohman at gunpoint to give him his money. When he received only $15, Scarver shot Lohman in the head. At the same time, he demanded money from Feyen. According to authorities, Scarver said, “Do you think I’m kidding, Mr. Hitler? I need more money.” Scarver shot Lohman twice more before Feyen was able to run away after giving a check for $3,000 to Scarver.

Scarver says that in his book he will:

  • explain why he beat Jeffrey Dahmer to death.
  • share information on all of the “sick, sadistic mind games and practical jokes” Dahmer supposedly played on prison officials and other prisoners during his time in prison.
  • will devulge Jeffery’s last words as he was beaten to death.
  • also wants to share all of the life lessons that he has learned.

This is the first that I have heard of Jeffrey Dahmer playing games or being sadistic after being arrested. I even did a bit of research to see if there were any other reports of that and I found nothing. Jeffrey did get baptised and supposedly became a good christian in prison so maybe that is what Scarver is talking about. (Scarver told officials that basically he killed them because he was on a mission from God. It would fit in with his insanity plea.)

Most people forget that Scarver beat two men to death that day. Also, very few remember (know) why he was in there in first place.

As to why he beat them to death he wanted to be famous is my guess. Here is what he originally told prison guards.

When he returned to his cell early, an officer asked him why he was not still working. He explained “God told me to do it. You will hear about it on the 6 o’clock news. Jesse Anderson and Jeffrey Dahmer are dead.”  -Wikipedia

Investigators at the prison said Scarver told them that, in killing Dahmer and Anderson, he “was simply submitting to the will of God and that he was simply a tool used by the spirit,” they wrote.


According to the New York Times, Scarver said the voices — a family, including a woman, a man, a little girl and a boy — had told him “everything was going to be all right and it was meant to happen like this.”

Personally I think he was trying for a psycho defense with all the fame and glory that comes from killing a serial killer.
Some people have tried to make Scarver into some kind of hero for killing Dahmer, Scarver is far from a ‘good guy’ or a hero of any sort.  I hope that this book does somehow glorify him.
