Some Upset About Dahmer Walking Tour In Milwaukee

Published March 2, 2012 8:09AM (EST)

MILWAUKEE (AP) — A group in Wisconsin wants to give tours of the bar where serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer met some of his victims.

But the business hit a snag this week when victims' families and others learned about the tours, which were offered at a cut-rate price through Groupon. Now some are trying to put a stop to the venture.

Spokeswoman Amanda Morden says Bam Marketing and Media is not deterred and the first two tours set for Saturday in Milwaukee are nearly booked up.

Neighborhood group president Victor Ray says it's too soon for a tour since the crimes are just 2 decades old and many relatives of Dahmer's victims are still around.

Alderman James Witkowiak says tour organizers are protected by free speech and the city can't stop them.
