MILWAUKEE -- Serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer has given his first media interview to the tabloid television show 'Inside Edition,' which will broadcast it in two parts next week.
Program publicist Judy Geder said the entire show Monday and a portion of show Tuesday will be devoted to the interview with Dahmer.
She refused to provide information about what Dahmer said.
Dahmer, 32, is serving consecutive life prison terms at the Columbia Correctional Institution in Portage on 15 murder convictions.
Dahmer's lawyer in Madison, Stephen Eisenberg, said it was Dahmer's decision to break his silence.
'Mr. Dahmer wanted to do it one time and only one time. He's not going to be a weekly event,' Eisenberg said.
The interview was conducted by reporter Nancy Glass Jan. 11-12 in a conference room in the prison. Geder said 'Inside Edition' did not pay Dahmer for the interview.
On a separate Dahmer matter, police in the Milwaukee suburb of Greenfield said a crypt containing the remains of one of Dahmer's victims was among 32 vandalized at Arlington Cemetery.
Capt. Mark Wildish said a police officer discovered Thursday that 32 above-ground crypts with cremated remains had marble plates pulled off them. Boxes containing the crypts were damaged.
One of the crypts contained the remains of Anthony Sears, who was killed in 1989 by Dahmer.
