Dennis Andrew Nilsen (born 23 November 1945) is a British serial killer and necrophiliac, also known as the Muswell Hill Murderer and the Kindly Killer , who murdered at least 12 young men in a series of killings committed between 1978 and 1983 in London, England.

The majority of his victims were vulnerable boys or men, many of whom were homeless or homosexual.

After strangling them, he would bathe their lifeless remains and dress them up; placing them around his home and sleeping at their side.

When this grotesque illusion of intimacy drew to a close, he would stow the bodies under floorboards, eventually dismembering and burning them.

His crimes were only detected by chance - when a drain outside his home became blocked by the human remains he had tried to flush away.
