I dated Jeffrey Dahmer – I left screaming when he tried to summon the Devil

JEFFREY Dahmer attempted to summon the devil around the time of his first sickening murder, leaving his prom date terrified.

Bridget Geiger was just 16 when 18-year-old Dahmer took her on her very first date to their high school prom.

She said Dahmer was “goofy” and “nerdy” but “didn’t appear to have a mean bone in his body”.

He was relentlessly taunted by other kids and “didn’t fit in”, she added.

Although two years younger, Geiger became caught in Dahmer’s web as her best friend was dating his pal.

She said she was “talked into” going to the Revere High School prom with him – but he didn’t say “two words” to her all night.

Geiger previously said: “We went over to the prom hall, but he disappeared.

“I thought he went to the bathroom but the time got longer.

“When he came back they wouldn’t let him back in. He’d been to McDonald’s because he was so nervous at dinner he hadn’t eaten enough. He was still hungry.

“He did apologise, he felt bad.”

“He was scared to death of girls. He was scared to death I was going to kiss him,” Geiger said told Associated Press after Dahmer’s arrest in 1991.

Weeks after her odd date with Dahmer, he invited her over to a party at his house.

But it wasn’t what Geiger expected, with no music playing and no food laid out.

Dahmer had also only invited four people and said he wanted to hold a seance.

To Geiger’s horror, Dahmer told her the house was haunted and that an evil ghost sometimes told him “to do things that scare me”.

They all then sat around a low table and “Lucifer” was called upon – sending her screaming in fear.

Geiger told Times Daily in 1991: “The flame on the candles snapped.

“It scared the crap out of me. I shouted ‘find the light, find the light. I’m out of here. I don’t want any part of this’.”

Dahmer showed no reaction to her terror, and he never saw Geiger again.

According to Geiger, the seance incident happened around the time of his first murder.

She has been haunted by whether it happened before or after he bludgeoned Steven Hicks to death on June 18, 1978.

According to Dahmer‘s classmates, he made repeated cries for help as a teen and turned to drinking – calling booze his “medicine”.

Ted Lehr and Dahmer attended Bath Elementery together and were childhood pals before drifting apart during their high school years.

The computer engineer said Dahmer was a “funny kid” who took a “wrong turn” as a teen.

Disturbed Dahmer would draw chalk outlines of fictional bodies, pretend to faint while crossing roads, and shout things out at inappropriate times.

Lehr told the Akron Beacon Journal in 1991: “He was weird, but I met a lot of weird people in grad school too.

“He was funny. When we were kids, he would make funny comments about things.

“He was a fun kid to be around as a child.

“When he got to high school, he was kind of a solemn person. He wasn’t as funny. Out paths diverged. He continued along with his craziness.”

Lehr told how other kids made “Jeff Dahmer” jokes as he began to hit the bottle more and more, and became a problem drinker by 18.

He added: “I remember in some science classes, he was fairly out of control.


“He was an intelligent kid. He just took a wrong turn.”

Dahmer’s drinking continued after he graduated and he boozed his way through his first quarter at Ohio State University before dropping out.

He then joined the Army, but before his three-year stint was up, he was booted out because of his “out of control alcoholism”.

Dahmer’s boozing fed into his callous murders as he would ply his unsuspecting victims with drugged drinks.

He would lure his victims – almost all of them from ethnic minority or LGBT communities – back to his apartment, often offering to pay them in return for nude photographs.

Once there, he would drug their drinks before carrying out his evil acts.

He later told the court how once drugged, he would drill a tiny hole into some of his victims’ skulls “just enough to open a passageway to the brain”.

Dahmer said he would then inject their brains with hydrochloric acid to induce a “zombie-like state”.

He repeated his heinous routine on 17 victims before he was finally caught in July 1991.

Dahmer met his own violent demise at the hands of a fellow inmate after being jailed for life at Wisconsin’s Columbia Correctional Institution in February 1992.

On November 28, 1994, Dahmer was bludgeoned to death by Christopher Scarver, who was in prison for murder.
