Jeffrey Dahmer was an American serial killer and sex offender who committed the murder and dismemberment of seventeen men and boys between 1978 and 1991. He was also known as the Milwaukee Cannibal or the Milwaukee Monster.

His killings involved necrophilia, cannibalism, and the permanent preservation of body parts — typically all or part of the skeleton. He was convicted of fifteen of the sixteen murders he had committed in Wisconsin and was sentenced to fifteen terms of life imprisonment on February 17, 1992.

Jeffrey died after he was beaten to death by Christopher Scarver, a fellow inmate at the Columbia Correctional Institution in Portage, Wisconsin. He died on November 28, 1994.

The murder of Adam Walsh remains one of the most controversial cases in the files of the Florida State police department. Other Ottis came forward as the murderer, other investigators believe his statement does not match with the case file.

Police are still forced to believe Jeffrey Dahmer is the murderer behind the Adam Walsh case. But did Jeffrey really kill 6-year-old Adam? Let’s find out.

Who Was Adam Walsh?

In July 1981, the mother of 6-year-old Adam Walsh took him shopping at a Sears store near their home in Hollywood, Florida, a suburb between Miami and Fort Lauderdale. Mrs Walsh said she left Adam to play the video games at the display and returned for him about ten minutes later. He was gone and she couldn’t find him.

In 1983, Ottis Toole, a drifter from upstate Jacksonville, Florida, confessed to the murder, and Hollywood Police announced it at a dramatic press conference.

After much deliberation, the police found out that everything Toole had said was just actual case facts already publicly known. In 1984 police dropped Toole as an active suspect.

Did Jeffrey Dahmer Kill Adam Walsh?

Although he became a suspect in the case, Dahmer was never proven to be the murderer of Adam. He also never admitted the murder in any of his trials.

Police had statements from six separate witnesses at the mall who said they saw Dahmer when Adam disappeared, but police couldn’t confirm that Dahmer had been in town then.

Reporter, Art Harris, working with ABC Primetime, found a Miami police report with Dahmer’s name dated 20 days before Adam was taken. During the time of Adam’s murder, Jeffrey was not a known murderer.

Who Is Adam Walsh’s Killer?

The police have still not been able to identify the actual killer of Adam Walsh. The case still remains unsolved.

Evidence discovered in 2008 was not explored since both suspects of the case were dead by then.
