A Letter that Jeffrey Dahmer Wrote to His Mother from Prison:
Dear Mom, Hello, how are you this week? I hope that you’re feeling good and that things are going well for you. Dave sent me a nice letter a few days ago. He said that he likes his job and has a lot of friends to do things with. So, it sounds as if he is doing alright. He also said that he is going back to school in ‘94 to get his MA degree.
I still have my job in the gym. About 3 weeks ago, the prison had a picnic, and the warden was stabbed. Someone stabbed him in the head, but he wasn’t hurt too badly. Because of the incident the whole prison has been ‘locked down.’ No one has been allowed to leave their cells, except to take a shower once every 2 days. They also searched everyone’s cell … I didn’t go to the picnic, but I heard about it.
I decided not to go into painting, but instead I bought a 60 piece set of colored pencils. They have a good rich color, and are a lot cleaner than paint. So, I’ll be passing some time with them. I remember you used to like to make pottery and work with stained glass. You used to be very good at both projects. Do you have any hobbies now, or are you too busy for that?
Well, Mom, I’ll close for now. I called you early this week, but you must have been out. I’ll keep trying. I really hope you’re feeling well, and that things are going better for you. With all my love, Jeff.
