Original August 6, 1991 color photograph of serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer as he sat in court at his trial in Milwaukee. The famous murderer is pictured in an orange jumpsuit and looks absent minded during the trial. Images of Dahmer only exist in wire form unless you were at the trial and this photographer from the Milwaukee Journal was indeed at the scene as the trial took place just down the street from the newspaper office. Developed on period paper (Kodak Royal paper was used from 1990 through 1997 but was phased out over the final few years, making this a clear 1991 print), this is one of the only original images of Dahmer we have ever handled and one of only a handful that would actually get a Type 1 from PSA. There is a paper label on the back from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that lists the date and the photographer as well as lab markings. A perfect 10/10!
