RESSLER: Okay. You say that the guy was going to leave, and you didn’t particularly want him to leave, and that hitting him was a way of delaying him. You took the barbell and what, rendered him unconscious? And what transpired after that?
DAHMER: Then I took the barbell and strangled him.
RESSLER: And after that? Had there been sexual activity before then?
DAHMER: No. I was very frightened at what I had done. Paced the house for a while. Ends up I did masturbate.
RESSLER: Were you sexually aroused by the event? By having him there?
DAHMER: By the captivity.
