MEQUON, Wis. (WSAU) - A memorial service was held during the weekend for a psychologist who examined Milwaukee serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer.

90-year-old Samuel Friedman of Mequon died eight days ago at his home in Mequon. Friedman had testified about the mental state of numerous criminal suspects -- including Dahmer, who admitted killing 17 mostly gay young men and boys in 1991. He concluded that Dahmer was not insane, and the killer was sent to the Portage prison where he was murdered in 1994. Friedman portrayed Dahmer as a "lost boy" who had demanding parents -- a "lonely, alienated boy" who had "difficulty relating to anyone." And Friedman had concluded there was no substance to the insanity plea that Dahmer had entered.

Friedman was raised In Hartford Connecticut, and received a doctorate degree in psychology from Minnesota after serving in World War Two. Besides serving in private practice, Friedman was a psychiatry and mental health professor at the Medical College of Wisconsin -- and he taught at Marquette, and at the U-W in Milwaukee and Madison.
