Jeffrey Dahmer's apartment

Milwaukee, Wisconsin

The Oxford Apartments building was situated on North 25th Street in Milwaukee.

Between May 1990 and July 1991, Dahmer murdered and dismembered twelve men at this location.

The building was razed to the ground in 1992 after his shocking crimes came to light. These days, it is an empty lot.

His grandmother's house

West Allis, Wisconsin

In December 1981, Jeffrey was sent to live with his grandmother in West Allis.

At the time, his family felt that he was drinking too much and that he needed a fresh start someplace else.

He continued to live here until 1990, when he moved to the Oxford Apartments.

Between 1988 and 1989, Dahmer murdered three victims at his grandmother's house. He also used the cellar to dismember the remains of Steven Tuomi, whom he had beaten to death at the Ambassador Hotel.

The Ambassador Hotel

Milwaukee, Wisconsin

On the night of September 15th, 1987, he lured his second victim, Steven Tuomi, back to the Ambassador Hotel on West Wisconsin Avenue.

The next morning, he woke up and realized that he had drunkenly beaten Tuomi to death.

Following the murder, he loaded his victim's body into a suitcase and transported it back to his grandmother's house in a taxi.

The 219 Club

Milwaukee, Wisconsin

The 219 Club is situated on South 2nd Street in the Walker's Point neighborhood of Milwaukee.

During the 1980s and 1990s, it was a popular gay bar.

Dahmer frequented the establishment on a number of occasions. He also picked up some of his victims here.

The Milwaukee Ambrosia Chocolate Factory

Milwaukee, Wisconsin

The Milwaukee Ambrosia Chocolate Factory was situated on North 5th Street.

Between 1985 and 1991, he worked here as a mixer.

After murdering Anthony Sears in 1989, he reportedly preserved his victim's head and kept it in his work locker.

The factory closed down in 1992 after the company decided to relocate to a new facility on Carmen Avenue. By that stage, Dahmer had already been sentenced to life in prison for his crimes.

Following its closure, the building was razed. These days, all that remains is an empty lot.

808 North 24th Street

Milwaukee, Wisconsin

He lived in an apartment at 808 North 24th Street for a short period of time in 1988.

He moved here in September 1988 after his grandmother asked him to leave her house in West Allis.

By that stage, she had grown tired of her grandson's drinking and "odd" behavior.

Dahmer's childhood home

Akron, Ohio

Dahmer grew up in this house on West Bath Road, on the northwestern outskirts of Akron, Ohio.

This is the place where he committed his first known murder.

La Cage Aux Folles

Milwaukee, Wisconsin

On March 25th, 1989, he met Anthony Sears outside of La Cage Aux Folles on South 2nd Street.

After luring Sears back to his grandmother's house in West Allis, he drugged him, strangled him to death, and dismembered his body.

He also preserved his victim's skull and kept it for two years.

The Phoenix Bar

Milwaukee, Wisconsin
