Jeffrey Dahmer victim never really recovered after terrifyingly escaping the murderer, according to the defence attorney

Paul Ksicinski, a defence lawyer, doesn’t need to watch “Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story” on Netflix to comprehend the ongoing agony the serial killer has caused.


On the evening of July 22, 1991, Tracy Edwards, a previous customer of his, escaped Dahmer’s house in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He stopped a patrol car that was driving down the street. As Edwards told the authorities that Dahmer had attempted to kill him, a set of handcuffs dangled from one of his wrists. An flat containing preserved human body parts, heads, and images of males who had been butchered was discovered by authorities after further investigation. According to the police, Dahmer admitted to killing 17 people since 1978.


Edwards was regarded as a hero at the time for assisting law enforcement in apprehending the “Milwaukee Cannibal.” The first episode of the Ryan Murphy-created online series, in which Evan Peters plays Dahmer, tells his story. However, Ksicinski claimed in an interview with Fox News Digital that after the terrifying encounter, Edwards’ life went downhill.


In a word, Ksicinski said, “Tracy became Humpty Dumpty as a result of the encounter with Dahmer; he was never able to put the parts of his life back together. “He may have occasionally seemed or even sounded, for lack of a better word, normal. He wasn’t, though. After that, he was never able to put his life back together. He overindulged in alcohol and drug use. He was homeless. He simply vacated one location for another. It ruined his entire existence. I have no idea how or what he could have done to repair the situation.”

Edwards recalled how Dahmer “was listening to my heart” at knifepoint during the 1992 trial.


Edwards testified before the court, “At that time, he informed me he was going to devour my heart.”


According to The New York Times, Dahmer would prey on his victims at bars or bus stations, luring them with promises of alcohol or money in exchange for posing for nude photos. He would drug their drinks and then kill his victims by stabbing and strangling them while they were unconscious. He kept their bones and ate at least one man’s arm in part, the outlet reported. For weeks, Dahmer’s apartment was the source of a terrible odour and even screams heard by nearby residents. The ages of his victims ranged from 14 to 33.


Dahmer was found guilty in Wisconsin of 15 murders. Prosecutors claim that there wasn’t enough evidence to put him on trial for the 16th murder. Additionally, he admitted guilt to the 1978 murder of a hitchhiker in Ohio. The 34-year-old was being killed by fellow prisoner Christopher Scarver in 1994 while serving 15 consecutive life sentences.


Amid the release of “Monster” on Netflix, Katy Perry and Kesha are criticised for using JEFFREY DAHMER references in their songs.


Police in Edwards’ hometown of Tupelo, Mississippi, became interested in the case because of the notoriety it received. He had been charged with sexual battery against a girl who was 14 years old. He was returned there to face prosecution. He accrued further offences throughout the years, including narcotics possession, property damage, bail skipping, and theft. He has reportedly been without a home since at least 2002.


Edwards was detained in 2011 after being accused of shoving a man off a Milwaukee bridge, where he perished. Ksicinski first encountered him then.


Ksicinski stated, “We always took the position that he did not toss anyone over. “In actuality, this was one of his friends. Unfortunately, they were all destitute and abusing alcohol. He was making an effort to yank him off the bridge. According to our opinion, the persons who had witnessed it didn’t actually have the best ability to understand what had taken place.”


According to Ksicinski, Edwards still exhibits signs of being plagued by his meeting with Dahmer.

He referred to Dahmer as the devil, Ksicinski said. “He never sought any form of psychological or psychiatric help for what happened to him, I ultimately learned. He decided to self-medicate on the streets with drink and drugs instead. He decided against seeking help since he would have to recall what had happened. But he did talk about what had occurred. He spoke of walking inside Dahmer’s flat and smelled death, and how Dahmer put his head on his chest to listen to his heartbeat. He related the line, “I’m going to have to eat your heart,” that Dahmer spoke.”


Ksicinski said, “I was astounded. “It’s one thing to learn about these specifics during a trial, but Tracy’s account of it left me in awe. I initially thought, “Come on, you’re just exaggerating to appear nice.” But you could tell how much it had an impact on him.”

According to Ksicinski, Edwards “accepted responsibility for the things he’s done in the past” at all times.

Edwards admitted admission to the lesser charge of helping a felon after initially being charged with murder.

He received a prison term of one and a half years. Ksicinski last encountered Edwards in 2015. It is unknown where he is right now.




Tracy didn’t ask to be one of Dahmer’s victims, according to Ksicinski. “And he simply had no desire to reflect on or even discuss what had occurred to him. Some of the victims’ relatives were parties to a legal lawsuit. He was never a part of that. I think he didn’t because he’d have to recall what had happened.”


He continued, “Post-traumatic stress disorder is genuine. “It is not a produced product. People experience tremendously painful circumstances, and each person responds to them in a unique way. You have no idea what the other person has been through or how they are handling it. And knowing it before making a judgement call can be helpful.”
