Who was Jeffrey Dahmer victim Oliver Lacy?

BETWEEN 1978 and 1991, Jeffrey Lionel Dahmer killed and dismembered 17 men and boys.

Among his victims was Oliver Lacy, and now many want to know more about him.

Who was Jeffrey Dahmer victim Oliver Lacy?

Oliver Lacy was famously known as one of Dahmer's victims.

Originally from Oak Park, Illinois, Lacy was a standout track racer at River Forest High School and has since been described as outspoken, according to USA Today.

The youngest of three sons, Lacy is said to have been a family man and even wore his father's cross after his passing.

Lacy was also the father of a 2-year-old child and was engaged to be married, USA Today notes.

How did Jeffrey Dahmer kill Oliver Lacy?

Shortly after his father's death, Lacy moved to Milwaukee from Chicago.

He then met Dahmer in July 1991 and went missing shortly after.

According to The Cinemaholic, Dahmer introduced himself as a professional photographer and quickly charmed the aspiring bodybuilder.

Lacy then went back to Dahmer's home for a photo shoot, but he was quickly drugged and then strangled to death.

The Cinemaholic notes that Dahmer also decapitated and dismembered his body.

Who were Jeffrey Dahmer's other victims?

Dahmer's killing spree began in 1978 after he took the life of Steven Hicks.

While Dahmer might be known for his cannibalistic killings, Hicks was one of the few victims that he didn't eat.

His other victims included:

  • Curtis Straughter
  • Richard Guerrero
  • Jeremy Weinberger
  • Jamie Doxtator
  • Ricky Beeks
  • Errol Lindsey
  • Konerak Sinthasomphone
  • Ernest Miller
  • Tony Hughes
  • Joseph Bradehoft
  • Matt Turner
  • Anthony Sears
  • David C Thomas
  • Edward W Smith

Tracy Edwards would have been his 18th victim but he was able to escape and alert authorities, which is how they discovered multiple polaroid pictures at his home.

Dahmer was then convicted of 15 murders and sentenced to 15 consecutive lifetimes in prison.

He ultimately served three years before he was killed in jail by Christopher Scarver.
