Jeffrey Dahmer's Killer

Appetite for a Book Deal

4/27/2012 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It's been 17 years since notorious cannibal Jeffrey Dahmer was brutally murdered in a Wisconsin prison ... and now, the man who beat him to death is shopping a tell-all book about the killing.

TMZ has learned ... a rep for Christopher Scarver has reached out to high power book publishers ... claiming the 42-year-old wants to explain why he felt compelled to bludgeon Dahmer to death with a broomstick in 1994.

Sources say ... Scarver -- who's currently serving multiple life sentences for multiple murders -- wants to reveal all sorts of details surrounding the Dahmer killing ... including Dahmer's last words.

We're told Scarver plans to reveal the "sick, sadistic mind games and practical jokes" Dahmer played on prison officials and other prisoners during his time in the pokey.

Sources say ... Scarver also wants to share the life lessons he's learned since the killing.

No word if anyone will bite.

He wasn't killed with a broom handle. He was killed by a bar from the weightlifting gym which was "smuggled" out in plain view of the officers who left Dahmer to be beaten/bludgeoned to death.

Who the hell would want to read it and let this guy profit from killing someone? Unfortunately, there are a lot of stupid people out there that would probably actually buy the damn book. I won't be one of them.

Shouldn't he be shopping a pamphlet deal? Or maybe a Star Magazine article? How is this schmuck going to pull of an entire book?

This guy has MULTIPLE murder sentences. Why is the world would anyone want to read what he learned? What can he teach anyone? How to murder not once, but several times and land in jail forever? I don't want to know how he did it, what Jeffrey said and certainly not "How to end up in jail for life"

By the way, this guy didn't kill Dahmer because he was the notorious Dahmer. He has schizophrenia and he killed another inmate at the same time. He is just another murderering nutjob. Anybody working with him that fateful day would have ended up on the wrong end of that weapon.

I would NOT buy this book IF it hits the book stores. This guy could put anything in a book just to make money from it-whether it's true or not. Sorry but I'll save my hard earned money on books from legitimate authors where at least the chances of the content being true would be much higher than this guy.
And even though it was Dahmer that he killed, he should NOT be allowed to profit from any crime! ONLY God can judge this person, but he's not getting my money. IF he truly wants to "share the life lessons that he's learned since the killing" then let him share with his fellow inmates, or others that are headed towards the same path that he's taken in life-for free! I refuse to finance his time and/or prison wish list.

This guy's a hero?? OK...he killed Dahmer..let's throw him a party. He is a MULTIPLE MURDERER who should rot in prison. Whoever is stupid enough to buy anything this piece of **** con prints should get the stupid beat out of them. Unbelievable..

I say any inmate that wants to write a book about the crimes committed SURE let em go ahead but lets take those profits from said books and put them to good use such as needy children organizations or battered and abused women and children or if not that then use it in the prison systems to update the security of them to protect society from the ones inside the walls and besides it will only give law enforcement better understanding of the criminal mind

He wants to write book...or a pamphlet? How much can he possibly have to say...and I'm certainly not interested in life lessons from a murderer! No matter who he killed...

I'd probably read the book.
