The upcoming Netflix docuseries is set to explore the crimes of Jeffrey Dahmer, a serial killer convicted of killing 16 men and boys between 1978 and 1991 (he was not charged for the murder of Steven Tuomi, though he is counted as one of his 17 victims).

Dahmer, who died in prison in 1994, was charged in 1991 and confessed to 16 murders in Wisconsin as well as acts of necrophilia and cannibalism, shocking the nation and the local community.

Directed by Joe Berlinger, CWAK: The Jeffrey Dahmer Tapes features never-before-heard audio interviews between Dahmer and his defence team.

"When Milwaukee police entered the apartment of 31-year-old Jeffrey Dahmer in July of 1991, they uncovered the grisly personal museum of a serial killer: a freezer full of human heads, skulls, bones and other remains in various states of decomposition and display," Netflix teases.

"Why was Dahmer, who had been convicted of sexual assault of a minor in 1988, able to avoid suspicion and detection from police as he stalked Milwaukee’s gay scene for victims, many of whom were people of colour?"
