Product Information

Tracy Edwards became famous for escaping from serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer's apartment and being responsible for Dahmer's arrest in 1991. Edwards became a household name in Milwaukee.

According to Edwards, Dahmer struggled with him in order to handcuff him, but ultimately failed to cuff his wrists together. Wielding a large butcher knife, Dahmer forced Edwards into the bedroom, where Edwards saw pictures of mangled bodies on the wall and noticed the terrible smell coming from a large blue barrel. Edwards punched him in the face, kicked him in the stomach, ran for the door and escaped. Running through the streets, with the handcuffs still hanging from one hand, Edwards waved for help to a police car driven by Robert Rauth and Rolf Mueller of the Milwaukee police department.

Tracy Edwards was hailed as a hero on July 22, 1991 for leading police to discover Dahmer's 17 dismembered victims, ending a spree of cannibalistic homicides by one of the country's most notorious murderers. Twenty years later almost to the day, Edwards was arrested on July 26, 2011 and accused of throwing a man to his death off a Milwaukee bridge. If convicted, Edwards faces 60 years in prison, possibly the very same prison in which Dahmer spent his final years before he was beaten to death by a fellow inmate in 1994

This is a short one page handwritten letter. General content as Edwards mentions the Holidays - signed 'Tracy'. Matching handwritten envelope signed in full 'Tracy M. Edwards' is included. (portions of the scan have been obscured to protect the privacy of the recipient as well as Edwards himself)

Great for display!
