I can't help but feel sorry for this guy. Did anyone watch the movie "Dahmer"? It's not some silly slasher flick, as you might expect. More like a B-movie horror/documentary. The man from the news article is essentially the co-star and he was pretty messed up back then and can't possibly be any less messed up now.
You can stream "Dahmer" on Netflix. It won't blow you away, but it's watchable.
