On July 22, 1991, Jeffrey's luck turned bad. It started out as all the other murders. Jeffrey met Tracey Edwards and they decided to go back to his apartment and drink some beers for a while. Jeffrey really liked Tracey so he decided he would let him live a little longer then the rest of his victims. There was a television on in the bedroom playing The Exorcist. That just happened to be Jeffrey’s favorite movie, so they went to the bedroom to watch it for a while. Tracey knew something was definitely not right when he smelled a horrid smell coming out of a big blue barrel which was used to put extra body parts in, and he saw the pictures hanging on the walls of men who had been chopped up. Just then Tracey felt Jeffrey trying to handcuff him; he struggled to keep his other hand from being handcuffed too. Jeffrey had a large butcher knife and pierced Tracey just above the heart. Tracey apologized to Jeffrey to try to ease his rage a little, he was trying everything he could think of to stall Jeffrey. Tracey made several trips to the bathroom, trying to find a way out of the apartment. The turning point came when Jeffrey forced Tracey to the floor and told him he was going to cut out his heart and eat it. Jeffrey wanted to take a few more nude pictures before he killed him. He turned his head to get the camera and Tracey punched him in the face. Jeffrey fell to the side and Tracey got up and kicked him in the stomach doubling him over. After clawing at the locks, finally the door opened and he was free; however, Jeffrey was not far behind him. Shortly after Tracey was outside, he saw a police car patrolling the streets. He ran to them and they all went up to Jeffrey’s apartment to find out what was going on. They told Jeffrey to give them the key to the handcuffs, which were dangling around Tracey’s left wrist. Jeffrey refused to get it. Within a few seconds it was like a wrestling match between the two police and Jeffrey. A match Jeffrey was sure to lose. After they had him in custody, they found the remains to eleven bodies in his apartment.
The police that were called to the incident involving Konerak Sinthasomphone were in a great deal of trouble because they had not done a background check on Jeffrey, which is required. Because they were so irresponsible, it created a lot of rage throughout the city.
Jeffrey admitted to all the murders and he even told the authorities where some other bodies were hidden. He pleaded insanity. Jeffrey was charged with sixteen life sentences. He had really killed seventeen people but they couldn’t find the body of Steven W. Toumi, so he wasn’t charged for it.
On November 28, 1994, Jeffrey’s body was found in the restroom of the Columbia Correctional Institute. He had been murdered by a black man who had also killed another racist white man at the same time. The three men had been assigned to mop the restroom floors when an argument started. An argument ending in tragedy to some and joy to others. It was later described that Jeffrey’s head looked like it has been repeatedly smashed into the wall or floor. It resembled a watermelon that had been dropped a couple times.
For Jeffrey’s family it was a very hard time, despite all the grief he had caused to innocent families, they still loved him. The reporters were also very hard for the Dahmer family to deal with. To many it was just the end to another nightmare.
