What other Jeffrey Dahmer items are selling?
James is selling a plethora of Dahmer's memorabilia including silverware, family photos, school artwork, and letters written to him while in prison.
A murderer and cannibal, Dahmer received letters from devoted fans who said they were in love with him.
Dahmer was killed in prison by another inmate, and James told The U.S. Sun: "Dahmer received so many letters that he didn't have time to respond to most of them."
He added: "[Dahmer's] family had to take many of them home because he was only allowed so many letters in his cell."
About one-third of the letters Dahmer received were from "fanatics" who claimed to be in love with him, saying: "You're misunderstood," "I love you," "I wish I could be with you.'"
James is selling the letters after the new Netflix documentary titled Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story was released on September 21, 2022.
James said he understands that people may not support or approve of him selling Dahmer memorabilia, and he said he has "no issue" with people's disapproval.
"I would never argue with someone who was personally affected by these killers' actions," James told The U.S. Sun.
However, he added: "Netflix just made the Dahmer series, and the people who were involved in that will make more money than I ever will.
"These are historical artifacts. If it's not for you it's not for you. I understand that this is a controversial target, but I think I'm an easier target for critics than a massive company like Netflix."
When did Jeffrey Dahmer die?
Dahmer was killed by an inmate in 1994 while serving his life sentence in prison.
The serial killer was sentenced to 15 consecutive lifetimes in prison in 1992 and was sent to a high-security prison in Wisconsin.
He spent two years in jail before he was killed while cleaning the toilets near the gym.
Rita Isbell is the sister of Errol Lindsey who was killed by Dahmer when he was only 14 years old.
She told the Orlando Sentinel that for two years after Dahmer was sent to prison, she received phone calls from men who claimed to be inmates at the prison.
Isbell said they offered her their condolences and promised that Dahmer would be "taken care of."
She received the last call about six months before Dahmer was killed, and the caller said: "You don't know me. I'm up here with Jeffrey Dahmer. Don't worry. We'll take care of it."
