A new documentary about Jeffrey Dahmer is now streaming on Netflix and it will feature never-before-heard audio between the ‘Milwaukee Monster’ and his defence team.

After the recent success of Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer story, the interest in the infamous serial killer has reignited.

Now Academy Award-nominated director Joe Berlinger will be releasing his third Conversations With A Killer series, centred around Jeffrey Dahmer.

The three-part series will explore the psyche of the serial killer and viewers will get to hear him explain some of his murders.

According to Netflix, the documentary will analyse ‘police accountability through a modern-day lens’.

The synopsis for the series reads: “Back for a third iteration, Conversations with a Killer uses never-before-heard audio interviews between Dahmer and his defence team to answer the big question.

“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?

“The three-part docuseries not only delves into the killer’s warped psyche but also examines police accountability through a modern-day lens. The upcoming docuseries highlights interviews with those who worked closely with Dahmer, including his lawyer Wendy Patrickus, during his high-profile case.”

Previously, Berlinger had released Conversations With A Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes (2019) and Conversations With A Killer: The John Wayne Gacy Tapes (2022).

Anticipation for the series has been growing, with fans looking forward to hearing some real-life audio from Dahmer, especially after the Evan Peters-led series.

In a teaser for the show, Dahmer’s defence attorney Wendy Patrickus compared her first meeting to Jodie Foster’s character Clarice Sterling in The Silence Of The Lambs meeting Hannibal Lecter (Anthony Hopkins).

She said: “When I first went in to see him, it was a very small interview room. 

“There was Jeff sitting in the corner of the table. I was incredibly nervous because this is something that I felt was way over my head… I felt like Clarice Starling in The Silence of the Lambs.
