A user tweeted, “The latest Jeffery Dahmer show is so fu* grisly. I can’t believe it happened and what happened to all those victims. He was such a sick man. What is even worse is that Dahmer took a couple of real Jeffrey Dahmer polaroids and posted them on the Internet.”
Another said, “People on TikTok are disappointed because they couldn’t find the real Jeffrey Dahmer polaroids he took.??? What the f*** Is it wrong with them? I’m sick to my stomach.”
The user quoted their dissatisfaction as many were spotted penning about how they tried to find all the real pictures., but only managed to get a few. A person said, “I don’t think they have released it but by now they know they might have,” with another chiming in “They have more on Reddit.”
Meanwhile, another group of users is asking why people choose to look at those weird pictures if they are anyway going to describe their weirdness. They want no one to have a look at the real Jeffrey Dahmer polaroids until and unless they can accept it. If not, “Why would they consider them in the first place?”
“The TikTokers are shocked about Jeffrey Dahmer polaroids… like excuse me! He ate people’s insides and kept the leftovers in his apartments, so what did you expect the Jeffrey Dahmer polaroids to look like?” one user asked.
So, ultimately, the trend has brought divided opinions on Tik Tok, with many doing their part by participating in it whereas others criticize those who do.
A disgusted TikTok user even took a video into the platform where he requested people to not let their curiosity land before the real Jeffrey Dahmer polaroids as it was too disturbing for him.
Another said, “Please don’t search for those Jeffrey Dahmer polaroids, instead, let the victims and their families rest.”
Despite the trend bringing lots of hate comments, many are still continuing to film it.

“It was my unique way of remembering their appearance, their bodily structure and if I could not keep it as a whole, then I at least had to keep their skeleton.”
The role of Jeffrey Dahmer polaroids in his arrest
Although Dahmer managed to stay undercover for 13 years, killing 17 innocent men, he was finally handcuffed by Milwaukee police after the supposed 18th victim, Tracey Edwards managed to escape his captivity.
Once Edward informed the police, they went to Dahmer’s apartment and discovered a bedside drawer. That was his storage shelf, where he had saved tons of polaroids of his victims as well as their dismembered bodies.
Those photos enabled police to identify the dead, whose corpses were not found. It was David Thomas, Dahmer’s ninth victim, who remained a mystery as none of his body parts were recovered from the spot.
