3 Red Flags Tony Hughes Should Have Recognized to Survive Jeffrey Dahmer

The sixth episode of the crime series, Silence, introduces Tony Hughes, a 31-year-old African-American gay deaf male. This episode showcases the life of one of Jeffrey Dahmer’s victims and highlights their lives in a beautiful way. Unfortunately, Tony Hughes was the 12th person to die at the hands of Jeffrey Dahmer. While this episode is a heartbreaking tragedy, it is also a cautionary tale of how to recognize three red flags that Tony should have seen in order to avoid what happened to him.

The first red flag Tony should have noticed was when Jeffrey Dahmer pulled out a board game he created as a child and began teaching Tony how to play. Tony questioned the rules of the game and Jeffrey became frustrated and shouted at him. This should have been a warning sign that something was off and that Tony should make his exit.

The second red flag was when Jeffrey became aggressive in questioning when Tony would return to see him. Jeffrey began panicking and asking Tony when he would be back. Though Tony brushed it off, this should have been a sign that Jeffrey was not mentally stable and that Tony should have distanced himself from the situation.

The third red flag was when Jeffrey approached Tony with his hand behind his back, as if he was holding something. Though Tony did not notice and gave him a hug, this should have been a sign that something was wrong and that Tony should have left.

Though Tony eventually escaped, he forgot his keys and returned to get them. If Tony had recognized these three red flags, he could have called a friend and returned with them to get his keys, which would have saved him from the tragedy that occurred.

The sixth episode of Silence serves as a cautionary tale for anyone in a similar situation. Recognizing these three red flags could potentially save someone’s life. It is important to be aware of our surroundings and to trust our instincts when something feels off. Though the tragedy of Tony Hughes’ death is heartbreaking, it is a reminder of how important it is to be aware of our surroundings and to trust our gut.

  1. They never had a relationship. The show is so disgusting and disrespectful to the victims, especially tony. Dahmer didn’t have any more feeling for him than he did anybody else.

  2. I just rewatched this episode and I found it heartbreaking. You can see how (fictionalised) Jeff really likes Tony and these feelings cause him inner turmoil as they conflict with his usual impulsion to kill… but sadly the impulsion wins in the end. And (fictionalised) Tony is so sweet and kind.

  3. he couldn’t have recognized the “red flags” you have to know that he was brought up in a morally good family he wasn’t used to people being “dangerous” and also he was deaf, it’s not likely he recognized darker’ tone (during the board game)
    RIP tony.
    i felt so bad for him.

  4. not gonna lie, this video and title is disgusting. tony was an actual guy, not a fictional character. imagine ur family member dying and then someone posts “oh, they could’ve did this instead and they would’ve survived” like bruh, have some sort of remorse.. this isn’t a horror movie where we can analyze the victims every move, this video is in bad taste even if it wasn’t your intention
