Tracy Edwards Dahmer

Tracy Edwards Dahmer, The man who led police to serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer two decades ago was sentenced Monday to a year and a half behind bars for his role in the drowning death of a homeless man.
Tracy Edwards’ attorney argued that the Dahmer encounter had a profound impact on his client, who has struggled with drug and alcohol addiction, and that the remorse he felt over the death last summer of Johnny Jordan just added to his pain.
“He’s going to have another ghost to haunt him all his life,” lawyer Paul Ksicinski told the judge Monday.
A criminal complaint accuses Edwards and Timothy Carr of throwing Jordan into a river from a downtown Milwaukee bridge during an argument July 26. Jordan drowned.
Edwards, 52, pleaded guilty to the reduced charge of aiding a felon in a plea agreement in Milwaukee County. He originally pleaded not guilty to first-degree recklessly endangering safety.
All three men were homeless when Jordan died.
Ksicinski said Jordan and Carr had a volatile relationship, and that Carr — who couldn’t swim well — went into the water after Jordan and had to be saved. He said he didn’t know why Carr went in, possibly to save Jordan or kill himself.
On Monday, Assistant District Attorney Mark Williams told Judge Rebecca Dallet that Carr had admitted his role in the death but that he would have had problems establishing that Edwards was involved in helping to lift Jordan off the bridge.
