Please join us Saturday, October 16th from 8 to 10 PM at the Hilton West Palm Beach, West Palm Beach, Florida.

On behalf of the NAME Foundation Board of Trustees, we would like to announce the sixth annual Saturday evening NAME Foundation fundraising event, to be presented in conjunction with the NAME Annual Meeting in West Palm Beach, FL. This year’s event will be a look at Jeffrey Dahmer Deaths, and will not be open to the public. The presenter will be our very own Dr. Jeffrey Jentzen and his presentation entitled The Jeffrey Dahmer Death Investigation: Questions and Answers 30 Years Later.

Jeffrey M. Jentzen, MD, PhD is an Emeritus Clinical Professor of Pathology at the University of Michigan. Dr. Jentzen served as medical examiner for Milwaukee County Wisconsin from 1987 to 2008. The Milwaukee office investigated the 1991 Jeffrey Dahmer deaths. Since 2008, Dr. Jentzen has been at the University of Michigan practicing in the autopsy and forensic service. This presentation will provide first-hand documentation and insight in to the Jeffrey Dahmer death investigation. It will examine the social, cultural, racial, and political environment in Milwaukee at the time which influenced the investigation. An effort to understand Dahmer’s psychological state and motivation for killing will be discussed. The presentation will review death investigative practices and challenges in a pre-911 era when DNA analysis and federal mass fatality funding was not readily available to medical examiner offices. In addition, the talk with illustrate the concept of the mini-disaster, although small in the number of victims, these disasters present similar logistical and strategic obstacles similar to larger multiple fatality incidents.

The event will serve as an outreach fundraiser for the NAME FOUNDATION to help raise scholarship money for Forensic Pathology Fellows, Pathology Residents, and students to attend and make scientific presentations at the NAME Annual Meeting.   As such, attendance at this event will be associated with a small donation and requires pre-registration.
