Who Is Tracy Edwards?
Just like the other 17 victims, Tracy Edwards was also victimized by the notorious and ruthless killer, Jeffrey Dahmer, when he was only 32 years old. On July 22, 1991, Edward escaped from Dahmer’s sketchy apartment, per the Biography. On the said date, police found him, handcuffed, and wandering around the streets.
Without a second thought, Jeffrey Edwards seamlessly escorted the police to Dahmer’s apartment, where the policemen were offered the key to unlock the handcuffs hanging from Edwards’ wrist. After releasing the man, they questioned Dahmer about the knife with which he was frightening Edwards. They eventually found polaroids of several other men, who were victimized by Dahmer.
From the investigation, police found a skull in his fridge along with genitals, which Dahmer chose as a Souvenir. Initially, Dahmer was adamant about surrendering to the police as he began fighting, making one of the officers request backup. Finally, when America’s deadliest criminal, Dahmer was arrested, he began to chant, that he should be dead for what he did.
From further investigation, the officials discovered a bag full of human organs, skeletons, bleached skulls, human hearts, several portions of arm muscles, the freshly severed head of a Blackman, penises of both young boys and men, and a torso.
How Did Tracy Edwards And Jeffrey Dahmer meet?
Nothing unusual, as Dahmer followed his usual way of trapping his prey from the bar as he sketched, plotted, and executed it as planned until one day, Dahmer applied his strategy to Tracy Edwards. He then went to Edwards and two other men and offered them $100 if they accompanied him to the apartment. Hearing the proposal, Edwards agreed to join Dahmer, unaware of what he had in store.
While reaching the apartment, Edwards felt something was fishy as he could sense a foul smell and spot bottles of hyaluronic acid on the floor and instantly questioned Dahmer. Apparently, Dahmer neglected the question saying it was kept to clean bricks, which was again suspicious.
In the next minutes, certain things happened that alerted Edwards of danger. Dahmer handcuffed teh guy and asked him to accompany him to the bedroom. While on their way, Edward discovered nude pictures of several men, hanging on the wall. Sensing the trouble ahead, Edwards outplayed teh disgusting Dahmer and escaped the apartment when he expressed his desire in eating the flesh of Edwards’ heart.
As the officers, Rolf Mueller and Robert Rauth realized the truth, they took Dahmer under custody and the verdict came against Dahmer in 1992.
