If you know Jeffrey Dahmer, you know that he slaughtered seventeen individuals; among them was TONY Hughes, who has now passed away.
Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, the newest Netflix drama series, details Dahmer’s life and untimely end.
“Big Tone” Tony Hughes was born on May 6, 1961, to Floyd Hughes and Annie Lee Walton, both of whom had previously passed away. This angel was summoned to serve our Heavenly Father in His heavenly kingdom on March 16, 2021.
Tony received his education in the New York City public school system, and he went on to become a fantastic man and spouse, a beautiful spirit, and an outstanding parent.
His interests were being a father and a role model to his children, as well as fishing, being productive, making others laugh, and being an inspiration to others. Tony was passionate and true in his devotion. He didn’t complain himself and was openly critical of those who did.
His sister Susie and brothers Robert, Leo, and Floyd all passed away before him.
Tracey (Stink) Reed, Sr., his mother Sylvia Kitchings, his brother Jahlil A. Bey, his three grandsons Bernard (BJ), Cory (CJ), and Martin (MJ), and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and other relatives and friends who loved him deeply survive him.
Tony, get some sleep. Of course, you were God’s favourite, but you were adored by all of us.
In May of 1991, Anthony Hughes and serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer met for the first time in a gay bar in Milwaukee. Sex and sexual favours were common lures used by Dahmer to lure his victims. The 31-year-old Hughes allegedly let Dahmer stay with him at his house.
Apparently, Dahmer requested a nudist photo shoot in writing. Once Dahmer got him inside, he poisoned him and then strangled him to death. Supposedly, after Dahmer’s body was dissolved with acid, just his head remained.
Even in the show, not much is shown about how Jeffrey Dahmer killed Tony.
According to FBI records, Hughes, 31 at the time of his disappearance, had not been seen by acquaintances since May 24 at the “219-Club.” His skull and vertebrae were discovered in Dahmer’s apartment in July 1991, along with the skulls and bones of dozens of other victims.
Tony’s dental records were the first place we looked for clues. The news of her son’s death reached his mother in the early days of July.
Shirley Hughes, his mother, told The Associated Press in 1992, “I felt I was going to lose my mind when it initially happened.” In another interview, she explained, “All I did was beg and plead with the Lord to show me where my kid was.” I just wanted to make sure he was still alive.
