‘IT’S famous for beer and cheese, and a serial killer.’
This really is the way David Farrier, host of this struck Netflix sequence Dark Tourist, non-chalantly announces the beginning of his trip to Milwaukee to combine a vacationer in the very road of infamous cannibal Jeffrey Dahmer, that he discovered had written everything could function as probably the absolute most haunting drawing on Earth.
Dahmer famously killed, dismembered — and in certain cases ate — 17 men and boys out of 1978 to 1991. Their body parts had been detected in his apartment, adding a few heads.
The’Milwaukee Monster’, who’d homosexual fantasies and would drug and kiss his victims, had been broken up at 1991 when you was able to flee. Before being killed by a fellow inmate at 1994, he had been sentenced to 900 a long time in jail.
Dahmer has attracted quite the cult following through the last few years and Farrier met with just one fanatic named Natalie — a self-proclaimed’dark tourist’.
She enthusiastically explains why his story was therefore fascinating:’There’s never been a case quite like his, where there were lobotomies, attempts to turn people into zombies, cannibalism, all of this in one.
‘He wasn’t a sadist possibly he basically given the little winner of drugging and strangling his victims… until the eviscerations.’
Then, things get weird when she pulls out the skull of a’South American male’ and when Ferrier asks if there are similarities between her and Dahmer, she denies it but confesses she’s’bizarre’.
But things got a whole lot stranger when the duo met with Dahmer’s lawyer Wendy Patrickus, who pulls out a piece of paper that her client had given her detailing the twisted shrine he had built in his apartment.
‘He saved the whole bodies of both at the ending… he had a thing for handshe’d save the hands a lot of days and of course the penis,’ she explains, pointing to the drawing.
‘He’d this quilt that had these globes that proceeded across the top of each one of these skulls which he would have to type of emphasize it. After which he’d only sit there in his chair plus it was his own small shrine to himself’
Farrier’s shocked expression says it all, as he struggles to comprehend what he’s seeing. Natalie sits there seemingly in a trance as she absorbs the details of the image, while fiddling with her necklace
‘It’s so odd as it’s almost like a child’s drawing and yet it’s about something really incredibly… I believe that is like True Detective (an American television show) or something directly, but outside,’ Farrier says.
‘Way beyond’, Wendy agrees.
He continues:’It’s therefore eerie thinking about Dahmer drawing this, and signing it’
As they leave the room, Farrier asks Natalie’How was for you.’ She gushes over how incredible it was.
‘Viewing the papers she has, the drawing of this shrine which he made, I couldn’t get my eyes it off ‘
He agrees that the simple line drawling was’captivating’.
‘As somebody who’s never ever killed anybody, or made a trophy room full of skulls, it’s sort of fascinating getting inside your brain of someone that has,’ Farrier continues.
‘I feel that’s why folks like me and Natalie are drawn with the particular stuff, it’s just similar to shooting a odd getaway, a few escapism prior to return to a normal dull presence. Grateful you’re living and don’t have any corpses rotting on your bathtub’
He concluded:’We’re all sickos Natalie, that’s exactly what I presume. We simply didn’t know it till now.’
The segment also shows the duo venturing into Shakers Bar, the hub of the Dahmer tourism industry, to meet the guides from the Cream City Cannibal Tour who take tourists to the streets where Dahmer picked up seven of his 17 victims, including Club 219.
‘Women like poor boys,’ the tour guides confirm.
The tour is dominated by most ladies in their 30s, and apparently a good deal of bachelorette parties have been held there too.
Here’s a single final gruesome detail that the tourists are told: Dahmer had strove to create a gender servant that wouldn’t have any preferences, wouldn’t talk or perform much at overall. But he still wanted them alive, so he drilled a few centimetres in their skulls, and poured hot water indoors.
