Maybe Mr. Rogers was right and every neighbor is a potential friend – someone worth inviting over, getting to know. On the other hand, maybe the weird guy next door will turn out to be Jeffrey Dahmer.
That’s what actually happened to the artist and alternative cartoonist John? Derf Backderf. He grew up in the 1970's, in the small town of Richfield, Ohio, and among his circle of friends was a kid everyone knew as Jeff. Jeff Dahmer. Not a serial killer or a cannibal – just a kind of weird kid with some problems. Backderf wrote about his former neighbor in a graphic novel called “My Friend Dahmer.” Steve Paulson asked him to take us back to July 22nd, 1991 – the day we all found about about Jeffrey Dahmer’s crimes.
