Within a week, on May 20, 1990, Dahmer met Mr. Smith and lured him to his apartment in 213 Apartments in Oxford25th Street North.

He offered her $50 in exchange for sex and once inside the property he spiked the sex worker’s drink with sleeping pills.

It is reported that the cause of Mr. Smith’s death was strangulation and Dahmer then performed sexual acts with the corpse.

According to police reports, the victim’s corpse was also dismembered and decapitated because Dahmer wanted to paint the skull gray.

This was later found in his fridge.

Dahmer wished to expose the rest of the bones around his apartment as ornaments and cleaned them using an acid tank.

Polaroids were also taken by the serial killer which show the victim’s corpse in disturbing and suggestive positions.

Dahmer was convicted of murdering 17 men and young boys in a killing spree that spanned 13 years.

His first victim was 18 Steven Hicks, who was lured into Dahmer’s car and driven home with the promise of booze.

When Hicks wanted to leave, Dahmer bludgeoned him with a 10-pound dumbbell and later confessed to hitting him twice from behind while he was sitting in a chair.

This knocked Hicks out and Dahmer used the barbell to choke him to death.

Dahmer used the body to perform a sexual act and the corpse was dissected in the basement to be buried in the back garden.
