Serial killer Nilsen's flat for sale

The London flat where serial killer Dennis Nilsen murdered and dismembered three victims is being sold by its new owner for a £100,000 profit.

Necrophile Nilsen had already murdered 12 men, most homeless homosexuals, when he moved to the Muswell Hill attic conversion in 1981.

It is believed he butchered at least three more at 23D Cranley Gardens, using his cooker to boil the skin off body parts which he hid in cupboards and under the floorboards. He was caught because of the stench of human flesh clogging up his drains.

Estate agent Bairstow Eves advertised the flat last summer as a “charming” property that is “centrally located and within walking distance to Muswell Hill Broadway and its bars and cafes”. But the advert warned: “Buyers are asked to research the history of this property.”

The asking price of £265,000 was reduced to a £240,000  guide price at Countrywide Property Auctions at Le Meridien ­Hotel, Piccadilly, but it still failed to sell. However, someone who was at the auction but did not bid returned the next day to make a £250,000 offer which was accepted.

No More Games. No More Bombs.

"No More Games. No More Bombs. No More Walking. No More Fun. No More Swimming. 67. That is 17 years past 50. 17 more than I needed or wanted. Boring. I am always bitchy. No Fun – for anybody. 67. You are getting Greedy. Act your old age. Relax – This won’t hurt."
Hunter S. Thompson
(suicide note to his wife Anita Thompson)
