It is not necessary for defense attorney Paul Ksicinski to view “Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story” on Netflix in order to comprehend the long-term psychological damage that the serial killer has wrought.
Tracy Edwards, who had been Dahmer’s client in the past, managed to flee his residence in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on the night of July 22, 1991. On the street, he waved down a passing police car and asked the officer to stop. While Edwards was telling the officers that Dahmer had attempted to kill him, one of his wrists was restrained by a set of shackles. The inquiry that followed eventually led the authorities to an apartment that had preserved human heads, body parts, and images of individuals who had been mutilated. According to the police, Dahmer admitted to killing 17 individuals starting in 1978.
Edwards was regarded as a hero at the time for his assistance in the police investigation that led to the capture of the “Milwaukee Cannibal.” The first episode of the streaming series created by Ryan Murphy and starring Evan Peters as Jeffrey Dahmer tells the narrative of his life and career as a serial killer. However, according to Ksicinski’s statement to the media, Edwards’ life took a dramatic turn for the worst after the terrifying experience.
Ksicinski elucidated the situation by stating, “The way that I’ve portrayed it, in a nutshell, is that the experience with Dahmer made Tracy into Humpty Dumpty – he was never able to put the pieces back together in his life.” “Because there isn’t a better word for it, we’ll just say that there were occasions when he seemed or even sounded normal. But that was not the case. After that, he was incapable of ever getting his life back on track again. He had a problem with substance misuse as well as excessive alcohol consumption. He did not have a home. He didn’t really go anywhere specific; he just moved around. It ruined his life completely. I have no idea what he could have done or how he could have done it to put everything back together again.”
