PSYCHOPATHIC serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer “made fun” of his fellow inmates because he “wanted to die”, claimed a prominent interviewer who sat down with the notorious killer.
Nancy Glass, a six-time Emmy-winning producer and writer, interviewed Dahmer in 1993 for CNN’s Inside Edition, a year before he was killed behind bars at the hands of a fellow inmate.
Speaking to The Sun Online, Nancy explains why she thinks Dahmer “wanted to die” to escape his unnatural urges.
Nancy spent over a year and a half securing the serial killer’s exclusive interview, building a relationship with him and his family.
“He wasn’t happy with the interview,” she said. “His family was so angry. They said to me: ‘You made him look like a monster!’”
Nancy’s take was that Dahmer was “making himself look like a freak.”
She added: “I don’t want a criminal to be happy with his portrayal.”
Despite their fury at how the interview had gone, Nancy continued to speak to the Dahmer family afterward. and was in communication with the killer until his death.
Dahmer was murdered in 1994 by fellow inmate Christopher Scarver, who bludgeoned him to death with an iron bar at Columbia Correctional Institution in Portage, Wisconsin.
In the months leading up to his death, he was known to provoke fellow inmates by appearing to relish his sickening crimes.
Prisoners remember that he would shape his food into body parts and inject ketchup into them to replicate blood, as in reference to his macabre cannibalism.
But Nancy thinks it was because he wanted to die.
For this reason, she admits that she was not at all surprised when she learned of his violent death.
“I believe he taunted people, he wanted that,” she said. “He wanted to escape. In prison, he couldn’t do what he wanted to do, which was to continue his evil behavior.”
She adds that in the interview, Dahmer freely admitted that he still had the same cravings.
I think he was taunting people, he wanted that. He wanted to escape
Nancy asked the killer if he would still commit crimes if he was on the street.
Calmly, he replied, “Probably. If that hadn’t happened, there’s no doubt that I probably would. I don’t see anything that would have stopped me.”
It was clear to Nancy that Dahmer “still had those urges” and that he “wanted to get rid of them.”
In prison, Dahmer claimed to have found faith and became a born-again Christian.
Nancy believes that Dahmer was convinced that he would experience redemption for his evil crimes if he converted other prisoners.
She recalls that after his assassination, Dahmer’s father told her he was devastated, not by his son’s death, but because he had failed to convert other prisoners.
In their letters, which continued almost until Dahmer’s death, Nancy says he wrote mostly about Jesus.
“He said his lord and savior would forgive him,” she said.
Despite this, she believes he spent his final months tortured by what he had done.
“He stayed up all night and slept all day because he couldn’t cope with daylight,” she said.
“Let’s not water it down, he was a psychopath.”
The weirdest part of the interview for Nancy was how much Dahmer wanted to talk.
“He wanted to talk to someone and he got used to talking to me,” she said.
Nancy, who is now CEO of Glass Entertainment Group and has more than 22 TV shows and podcasts currently in production in the United States, admits that she hasn’t watched the Netflix series yet, but that she ” will certainly do”.
“It’s not supposed to be a documentary, it’s a TV show,” she said.
“We’re still fascinated by serial killers as a society because it’s so disconcerting how someone can be so cruel and do such terrible things.”
