Dah­mer’s Haunts

Milwaukee Magazine - - Culture -

The apart­ment build­ing where se­rial killer Jeffrey Dah­mer lived and com­mit­ted many of his crimes was de­mol­ished years ago, but sev­eral of his other haunts are still stand­ing.

AM­BAS­SADOR HO­TEL 2308 W. Wis­con­sin Ave.

Dah­mer killed his se­cond-ever vic­tim in 1987, in­side a room at the Am­bas­sador Ho­tel, then a much seed­ier es­tab­lish­ment than to­day. He car­ried the body out in a large suit­case he’d bought at The Grand Av­enue mall.

LACAGE 801 S. Se­cond St.

Most of the gay bars and clubs where Dah­mer met his vic­tims dur­ing the late 1980s and early 1990s have since closed, but LaCage is still go­ing strong.

GRAND AV­ENUE MALL 275 W. Wis­con­sin Ave.

Dah­mer oc­ca­sion­ally shopped at this Down­town mall (now The Shops of Grand Av­enue) and in 1991, he of­fered a man he met there $20 to pose for nude pho­tos. The man agreed, but when Dah­mer pulled out hand­cuffs, the in­tended vic­tim ran away.
