Conviction[edit]

According to Christopher Scarver, he was convicted and sentenced for the murders. Can anyone confirm, reference and add? Rich Farmbrough, 19:43 5 May 2007 (GMT).

The other Jesse Anderson (the musician)[edit]

There is also a musician named Jesse Anderson. He was linked in the Breaking Atoms article as related to the song "mighty mighty". Google does not show much more, anybody willing to add info about him? Tierlieb 19:29, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

Notability?[edit]

Does this subject comply with Wikipedia's notability standard? Seems the only reason he is mentioned is because he happened to be a covictim with Jeffrey Dahmer. If nobody objects, I will request this article's deletion in the next few days. Blockhouse (talk) 05:38, 8 January 2008 (UTC)

I agree, and I have recommended it for deletion. A Google search for "Jesse Anderson" "murder" gives 348 hits, almost all of them false positives or a discussion of the murder of Dahmer. He's not notable by himself and shouldn't be dignified with a Wikipedia article. Bueller 007 (talk) 00:15, 8 July 2009 (UTC)
I agree as well, I have seen smaller articles for far more notable people than a convict who happened to be murdered at the same time as Dahmer. There are several people who are far more note worthy that don't have articles at all. I think all we need to know about this person is in the Dahmer article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.30.208.49 (talk) 13:47, 28 January 2013 (UTC)

Not that simple, is it - Scarver is in the news again. In 1994 the story was that a black schizophrenic had been left unsupervised with Dahmer (who had killed black men) and Anderson (who was reported as being a white supremacist). The story left people to draw the conclusion that the guards wanted Scarver dead. The outcome was thus unexpected. Even more ironically, Scarver now thinks the guards wanted Dahmer dead, but that seems unlikely (or the third man would have been someone other than Anderson, no?), and Scarver has been diagnosed with schizophrenia. Clearly Anderson's personality and motives need to be analysed in the light of the original 1994 story, and so this article doesn't go far enough. His white supremacism seems to have been an exaggeration, but a man who stabbed his wife 21 times has dark secrets that need examining. And if the conclusion is reached that the whole was an unfortunate accident, that still means Anderson's page is worth keeping. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Vince Calegon (talkcontribs) 19:58, 29 April 2015 (UTC)

This should just redirect to Scarver's article. FunkMonk (talk) 18:58, 10 March 2017 (UTC)
I also agree. It should be removed. He is only notable for Dahmer's murder. Ashmoo (talk) 09:57, 28 April 2017 (UTC)
