Cat Dahmer depicts Jeffrey Dahmer. Jeffrey Dahmer also known as the Milwaukee Cannibal killed 17 men and boys in Milwaukee, Wisconsin between 1978 and 1991. He preserved and consumed body parts of the victims which police found in his apartment during his arrest in July 1991. Cat Dahmer is based on a photograph of the serial killer during his trial in 1992 wearing a blue and white striped shirt.
“Like the story behind the blue and white striped shirt seen ’round the world. The one Dahmer wore during his first court appearance when everyone was waiting to see what Dahmer would look like. The shirt was given to Dahmer by homicide detective, Pat Kennedy. The shirt once belonged to Kennedy’s son, Pat Jr.
“I asked him, I said, ‘Hey Pat do you have a shirt and some pants that you don’t like?’ And he pulls out this blue striped shirt. He says, ‘Yeah. This one you gave me for Christmas that I will never wear?’ I gave those to Jeffery Dahmer. He put them on,” recalls Kennedy.Date
