In a bizarre but somehow unsurprising twist, PETA has been denied the right to use the childhood home of serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer as the site of a vegan restaurant.

Dahmer’s home is located in Bath Township, Ohio, and is also the burial ground of the victim of his first murder, which also took place at the house. In 1978, Dahmer murdered and dismembered Steven M. Hicks, then scattered the man’s remains around the 1/5 acre property, starting off a 17 person killing spree.

We’re guessing it’s the brutal deaths that made president of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, Ingrid Newkirk, defend the decision in a letter to Richard Lubinski of Stouffer Realty about using the house as a vegan restaurant.

“We are always looking for ways to draw attention to the violence inherent in the production of meat, eggs, and milk — which involve processes that would shock all but the most hard-hearted person,” Newkirk said. “Dahmer’s old house gives us a way to evoke sympathy for these victims and to suggest that a life-affirming diet can change everything.”

There’s probably a sick and twisted joke involving chipotle barbecue tofu kebabs and vegan creamy chicken casserole, two actual menu options, had this been approved. But it appears that appeasing the memories of Dahmer’s victims prevailed over Newkirk’s use of the location to highlight atrocities committed towards animalswe’ll just say Newkirk is not only disillusioned but disrespectful to Dahmer’s victims memory and their families.

Lubinski, the listing agent for the house said, “I think it’s great. If they want to buy it and repurpose it, that’s phenomenal.”

We’re guessing the town is hopeful to find something that will remove Dahmer’s legacy, but a restaurant named Eat For Life: Home Cooking, as Newkirk hoped, is probably not the way to go about doing so.

Luckily enough, due to zoning restrictions and problems with the plumbing, the organization was not granted access to use of the home, which as of last month remains on the market priced at $295,000.
