On July 23rd, 1991, the Milwaukee Journal published a story that sent shockwaves across the city. Residents of Milwaukee, Wisconsin were shocked to learn that a local apartment contained dismembered body parts and remains of numerous victims. Even more disturbing was the man responsible for all the horrors.

Former Crime Reporter with the Milwaukee Journal Anne Schwartz was the first to break the story of Jeffrey Dahmer. She looks back at her coverage of the case and shares why it’s so difficult for residents of the city to remember this disturbing part of their history.

Anne has authored two books about the Dahmer case: The Man Who Could Not Kill Enough, and Monster. Anne was also featured in the series, My Son Jeffrey: The Dahmer Family Tapes, which is available to stream now on FOX Nation.
