BATH, Ohio (AP) — Visitors heading to Ohio for the Republican National Convention have the rare opportunity to rent the childhood home of one of the country’s most notorious killers.
The former Bath Township home of Jeffrey Dahmer is among several private properties that real estate company Howard Hanna has made available for rent while the convention is underway in Cleveland in July.
The three-bedroom home about 25 miles south of Cleveland costs $8,000 to rent for the week. It’s the site of Dahmer’s first murder in 1978.
Dahmer, then just 18, killed a hitchhiker and disposed of his remains in the woods behind the property. He murdered 16 more victims and was killed in prison in 1994.
Homeowner Chris Butler tells the Akron Beacon Journal he put up the listing on a whim to “suck some Republican gelt from those people.”
