This mysterious serial killer, also known as the Milwaukee Cannibal, probably accounted for one of the most famous cases in history. He seemed to kill for reasons no better then just lust and gratification. The serial killer knocked off 17 people over 13 years, all starting when he was just 18! He would lure his victims, usually young men, to his apartment with drugs, alcohol, and money. Dahmer went as far as to dismember and store body parts throughout his apartment after killing them. He would sometimes even eat these dismembered body parts. Some say he went so long without being caught because he chose the ever shifting population such as drifters and prostitutes who had no real identity. He did not kill acquaintances or lovers as many murderers did. When arrested in Milwaukee in 1991 Dahmer confessed to all 17 murders, and was sentenced to about 900 years in prison. ...read more.

Lastly, Hirschi described beliefs. Here, it is believed that some people have a stronger belief then others that they should obey to society's rules. In Jeffrey Dahmer's case the attachment dimension of the Bond Theory definately was not present. As I stated before; his father was distant, and he was not even that close with his brother. The problems with these ties were likely linked with his crimes. Also under the attachment part I should mention that his parents got a divorce when he was eighteen, his mother moved out and left him living alone. This is when he committed his first murder on a 19 yr. old hitchhiker and scattered his body parts all over the woods. In the involvement section of this theory; his father tried enrolling him in college at Ohio State University, but he dropped out after one term. His dad then tried enrolling him in the Army, but he was soon discharged for alcoholism. He was not married and had no steady companion. The involvement part surely was not there with Jeffrey. The next theory I feel that applies to Dahmer is the Routine Activities Theory. ...read more.
