In April 2015, the Hadley house was demolished.
Tyler is yet to show any true remorse for the killings, and continues to appeal the conviction on the grounds that his age, immaturity or troubled youth — marked by anxiety, depression and drug use — influenced his decision to kill.
During his 3-year stint in prison, Jeffrey Dahmer became known for having a twisted sense of humor.
According to a former minister Roy Ratcliff, “If he saw a guard that was nervous and standing near enough to hear him, he would say, "I bite." Usually, the guard would jump away and that would make Jeff laugh.” Ratcliff also said Dahmer put a sign on the wall of his cell that read, “Cannibals Anonymous Meeting Tonight.” “He sort of played with his persona to exaggerate it and make people more fearful. This was just his way — morbid humor to deal with his hopeless situation." In 1994, a fellow inmate Christopher Scarver got fed up with Dahmer's practical jokes and bludgeoned him to death.
Scarver told the NY Post that Dahmer would make severed limbs out of prison food, douse them in ketchup to simulate blood and place them around the prison to freak people out.

On May 15, 2014, in desperate need for money, 27-year-old Dean Smith attempted to rob a local bank. Wearing a "terrible disguise" of sunglasses and socks over his shoes, Smith demanded the cashier to give him all money from the till. Cashier Catherine Stockton ignored his request and immediately pressed the panic button, leaving the robber empty-handed.
Once police arrived at the scene, they've identified the criminal in a matter of seconds. "How is that possible?" you might ask.
30 minutes before the incident, the attempted robber went to the same bank to change his address and gave the cashier all of his personal details.
Smith was jailed for two-and-a-half years for an attempted robbery and carrying .a bladed weapon, which eventually turned out to be a bread knife.

Eventually, late in the evening, Tyler confided in childhood friend Michael Mandell, who refused to believe it until Tyler showed him the bodies. Mandell called Crime Stoppers, and police quickly arrived, found the corpses, and arrested Tyler.
According to fellow prisoners, he's proudly monikered himself "hammer boy," signs "hammertime" autographs for other inmates, and often fondly recalls the awesomeness of the party.
I know what I’ll be doing tonight.
Having a glass or two of a delicious red wine, whilst watching @mindhunter with my man!
What’s better than good wine, true crime and even better company? I don’t think there’s much!
Are you a lover of good wine and true crime too?
