Nation IN BRIEF : WISCONSIN : Doctor Says Dahmer Cut Victims' Brains

January 20, 1992|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Confessed mass slayer Jeffrey L. Dahmer attempted lobotomies on some of his victims while they were drugged, a forensic psychiatrist told the Wisconsin State Journal in Madison. Dr. Frederick Fosdal, hired by prosecutors, said Dahmer drilled holes in victims' heads to deaden a portion of their brains and poured fluids into the holes. "He had hoped to control and keep them around longer by making them zombie-like," Fosdal said. Dahmer has pleaded guilty but insane in the deaths of 15 young men in the Milwaukee area.
