The "Milwaukee Monster" ate the bodies of his victims because he "wanted them to be part of him," revealed one of the few journalists who interviewed the serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer. On Wednesday, Emmy-winning producer Nancy Glass discussed her time with the murderer who is the subject of Netflix's blockbuster movie 'Monster' with Kyle and Jackie O on an Australian radio program.

Glass interviewed Dahmer for CNN's Inside Edition in 1993. She revealed, "He said he chose to eat them because he wanted them to be part of him. He was so desperate, so desperately lonely, so ashamed of being gay." The journalist also stated that, surprisingly, Jeffrey Dahmer appeared to be "completely normal" in spite of his heinous crimes and difficult upbringing.

According to Glass, Dahmer had "bonding issues" because his mother Joyce Flint forbade anyone from touching him after he was born, "except to change his diaper." His obsession with people leaving him led to the delusion that by eating his victims, they would stay by his side indefinitely, reported by Daily Mail. Glass responded "no" when Jackie "O" Henderson, the radio host, asked if she ever felt empathy for Dahmer during their correspondence or their prison interviews.

She explained that she always maintained a professional distance from Dahmer and refrained from passing judgment, but this wasn't any different from how she would interview any other public figure. She stated, "You guys interview how many people? And basically, I'm the same as you. You go at it from a very professional standpoint. When you're interviewing a politician. You're careful, right? You don't judge. But ask the question so that everybody listening can judge - and that was my job."

Glass also discussed how, before meeting Dahmer in prison, she "got to know his family." She said, "I was involved with the family for several years. And the father [Lionel Dahmer] never thought anything was wrong [with Jeffrey]. He never noticed it. After being granted permission by Dahmer's family to write to him in prison, he wrote back to me, and then we started to talk." Glass added, "'The super scary part [was] he seemed perfectly normal. That's terrifying. It was odd. I mean, you can hear the way he's talking to me is very thoughtful. He contemplated, but he's a psychopath. He says to me, I'm sorry for what I did." But he's a psychopath. He doesn't even know what those words mean."

Additionally, Glass revealed that Dahmer's mother, who passed away in 2000, took a concoction of 17 prescription drugs while she was pregnant with him, which may have contributed to his deranged mental state. When Dahmer was beaten to death in prison in November 1994 at the age of 34, she remarked that both of his parents, who divorced when he was 18 years old, were "very, very odd." Due to the fact that Dahmer "didn't get the chance to convert people to Christianity in prison," his father Lionel was particularly upset by his son's premature death. Dahmer would write to Glass from prison discussing God after being given 16 life sentences for his crimes.

Glass continued by stating that while Dahmer's first murder "was an accident," his subsequent premeditated killings were done in order to "make zombies" instead. "He injected drugs into people. He drilled holes in some and poured acid into everything he could, because he wanted to create a zombie," she described his method of operation.

Dahmer is said to have killed and dismembered at least 17 men and boys between 1978 and 1991, earning the grisly nickname 'The Milwaukee Cannibal' after his spree of twisted murders saw him eat some of his victims. The serial killer murdered and dismembered 17 males over a 13-year period before he was finally apprehended by the authorities, who later found that he kept body parts as souvenirs, including skulls and genitals.
