Nation IN BRIEF : WISCONSIN : $400,000 Offered for Dahmer's Belongings

May 07, 1996|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

A Milwaukee civic group offered at least $400,000 to buy and destroy Jeffrey Dahmer's belongings. But Thomas Jacobson, a lawyer representing families of 11 of Dahmer's victims, said that if the civic group doesn't come up with $1 million he will proceed with the auction. The group of business people formed last week to try to prevent an auction and "close the book" on one of the country's worst murder cases. A court last month cleared the way for the sale of dozens of items to benefit families of the 17 young men and boys he killed. Dahmer was arrested in 1991 and killed by a fellow prison inmate in 1994.
