NBC NATIONAL NEWS — A lot of folks are livid over a Groupon offer for a tour of Jeffrey Dahmer's killing grounds.
It's literally a tour of terror.
The popular website Groupon.com was offering Dahmer tours at a discount, but the idea isn't popular with people who live in Dahmer's neighborhood.
The website says the tour grants a spine-chilling glimpse into the life of Jeffrey Dahmer from within his hunting grounds.
"I don't think it's good to tour a place where this man had terrorized people" said Gary Ramsey.
"We're trying to forget it, but the loved ones aren't going to forget about that as soon as they hear something about that, they're going to react to it," said Johnny Hicks.
Amanda Morden is the organizer of the event.
She admits it's a sensitive subject, but one that can be looked at as a education, even if it's not how people picture it.
"We're providing information, much like if you would pick up a book or watch a documentary, it's just in a different format than I guess people are used to," she said.
Because of all of this, Groupon has pulled it's affiliation with the event, though Morden said the event has not been canceled.
