The Phoenix Bar: Jeffrey Dahmer

This is the bar where serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer picked up 21-year-old Richard Guerrero and 28-year-old Edward Smith.

It is situated at 235 South 2nd Street in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

In 1988, this was the location of a gay bar called The Phoenix. These days, it is an entrance to an apartment building.

On March 24th, 1988, Dahmer met Guerrero at the bar and offered to pay him money if he agreed to pose for photographs.

After bringing Guerrero back to his grandmother's house in West Allis, Dahmer proceeded to drug him with sleeping pills and strangle him to death.

Shortly afterwards, he dismembered his remains and disposed of them in the garbage.

Two years later, in June 1990, Dahmer met another victim named Edward Smith at The Phoenix.

After luring Smith back to his apartment with the promise of money, Dahmer drugged him and strangled him.

Although he initially tried to preserve Smith's remains, he eventually decided to throw them into a vat full of acid after they started falling apart.

Following his arrest in July 1991, Dahmer openly confessed to murdering both Guerrero and Smith.

Despite this confession, no trace of the two men has ever been found. To this day, they remain listed as missing people.
