Serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer bragged to his father about his sick trophies in a never-before-heard prison phone call, a new documentary has revealed.
In new phone recordings, Dahmer can be heard telling his father, Lionel, about an incident between them which nearly ‘came to blows’ at his grandmother’s home in Wisconsin.
‘Remember when you visited grandma? Remember that small, one-by-one square foot box?’, Dahmer asked his father from prison, in a new tape set to air on Monday on FOX Nation’s documentary My Son Jeffrey: The Dahmer Family Tapes
‘You know what was in it, don’t you?’ he said. ‘The mummified head and genitals of the last victim at the West Allis location’.

In new phone recordings, Dahmer can be heard telling his father, Lionel, about an incident between them which nearly ‘came to blows’ at his grandmother’s home in Wisconsin
The serial killer had been sent to live with his grandmother, Catherine, in 1981 after being discharged from the army for excessive drinking.
He admitted to murdering three of his victims there after meeting them at nightclubs or the local baths.
Dahmer would drug them and take them to the three-bedroom home before strangling and dismembering them in the basement.
One of his victims, Steven Tuomi, he killed in a nearby hotel – but kept his mummified remains in his grandmother’s basement.
He lived with his grandmother for nine years but moved out in 1990 after she asked him to leave because of his heavy drinking and strange behaviors.
The documentary, which airs on September 18, reveals new details of the relationship between Dahmer and his father, Lionel.
Lionel, now 87, can be heard in the never-before-heard recording telling his son that he believed he had been hiding pornography at his grandmother’s house.
Dahmer starts the conversation by saying: ‘One thing I wanted to share with you. Remember when you visited Grandma? Remember that small, one-by-one square-foot box?

In another recording, Lionel can be heard telling his son that he had ‘weird thoughts’ when he was younger but he was ‘never caught’
‘It was wooden, but it had a metal covering, and you were very insistent that I opened that up because you thought I had pornography magazines.’
‘Yes that’s right I did’, replies Lionel. ‘I never thought anything more than that’.
His son continues: ‘I was arguing with you because I didn’t want to open it up. We almost came to blows, so I went out the door and I came in again two minutes later.
‘I apologized and everything and you were on your way down to the basement to break the locks to open the case.’
It is unclear who the mummified remains in the box belonged to, with Dahmer killing Jamie Doxtator, Richard Guerrero, and Anthony Sears at the location.

The correspondence took place between the father and his twisted son during his time in prison, before he was murdered.
Records show that Lionel now lives with his second wife, Shari, in Seville, Ohio, around 25 miles west of Akron.
He has been divorced from his son’s mother, Joyce, since 1978 after she had an affair.
Dahmer was found guilty of murdering (L-R) Curtis Straughter, Steven Mark Hicks, Ricahrd Guerrero, Jeremy Weinberger, Jamie Doxtator, Ricky Beeks, Oliver Lacy, Errol Lindsey, Konerak Sinthasomphone, Ernest Miller, Anthony Hughes, Joseph Bradehoft , Matt Turner, Anthony Sears, David C Thomas and Edward Smith

Milwaukee cops found five severed heads in Dahmer’s kitchen, including the one in the fridge that Dubis was asked to look at
He wrote a memoir ‘A Father’s Story,’ in 1994, giving his side of his son’s heinous crimes.
The four-part documentary is set to air exclusive Dahmer family home movies and ‘new insight into one of the world’s most infamous string of crimes.’
Dahmer was arrested in 1991 after Tracy Edwards escaped Dahmer’s clutches and flagged down two police officers.
Milwaukee cops found five severed heads in Dahmer’s kitchen, including the one in the fridge that a senior police officer was asked to look at.
They found seven skulls, a tray of blood drippings, two human hearts, part of an arm, a torso and a bag of human organs and flesh at the property.
Horrifically they also discovered two skeletons, a pair of severed hands, two severed penises, a mummified scalp, as well as three more torsos dissolving in a 57-gallon drum of acid.
When raiding Dahmer’s apartment, cops also found 74 Polaroid pictures detailing the dismemberment of each victim.
Knives and sawblades were scattered on the floor, as well as a hypodermic needle and an electric drill which he is believed to have used on his victims.
Dahmer raped, murdered and cannibalized 17 young men across Wisconsin and Ohio between 1978 and 1991, and was convicted in 1992 of the crimes

Dahmer, who was already a convicted sex offender, was sent to prison in 1991 after he confessed to killing 17 men and boys between the ages of 14 to 33
Dahmer was handed 15 consecutive life sentences in jail, but only served two before he was beaten to death by fellow inmate Charles Sarver at the age of 34.
The convicted sex offender targeted victims between the ages of 14 to 33, and admitted violating the corpses after he killed them.
Dahmer’s twisted crimes and life were serialized in the hit Netflix documentary Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer story last year.
By day Dahmer worked in a chocolate factory but by night he would go out to find many of his victims at gay bars.
He would invite them to his Milwaukee home so they could drink alcohol and he could take pictures of them naked.
Dahmer would then drug his victims, strangle or stab them, before dismembering them and eating parts of their bodies and saving others in his refrigerator or other parts of his house.
He was caught out in July 1991 when his 18th intended victim, 52-year-old Tracy Edwards, managed to escape after Dahmer had put him in handcuffs and tried to attack him with a knife.
After Edwards brought police to the apartment, Dahmer was arrested and admitted killing 17 young men, his youngest victim – Konerak Sinthasomphone – being 14 years old, and his eldest – Eddie Smith – being 36.
