Who is Christopher Scarver?

Scarver is also a convicted murderer. He received life imprisonment in 1990 for killing Steve Lohman.

The two used to work together at the Wisconsin Conservation Corps. He held Lohman down at gunpoint while demanding money from the site manager, John Feyen.

His anger grew when Feyen only lent him $15, ending up shooting Lohman once in the head, killing him in an instant.

Authorities revealed Scarver told Feyen he needed more money, shooting Lohman twice more. Feyen then wrote him a check worth $3,000. He fired again but missed Feyen and left.

Scarver reportedly hears voices telling him he’s the “chosen one.” He was later diagnosed with schizophrenia and suffered from “messianic delusions,” making him think he was a destined savior.

Why Did Christopher Scarver Kill Dahmer?

In an interview with New York Post in 2015, Scarver revealed he used to distance himself from Dahmer due to the latter’s odd behavior and lack of remorse.
