Denis Nilsson and his victims
The Netflix streaming service went live in September 2020 for regular viewers Memories of a Murderer: The Nilsen Tapes The documentary will be remembered and the image of the gruesome murders committed by a demon named Denis Nilsen, who was a resident of Yorkshire, England, will not go away from the memory. He was a very cruel and eccentric person. A deranged homosexual, Nilsson is said to have chosen his victims very shrewdly. He preyed on men who were alone and helpless. Among his prey were drug addicts roaming the streets. Even persons who were a mixture of the two fell prey to him.
The youngest of his victims was 14-year-old Stephen Holmes. In 2006, he was identified through a DNA test. Attempt: Stephen Holmes was also the first victim of Pataki Nilsen. A boy named Martin Duffy was just 16-years-old when Nielsen fell victim. The police were successful in identifying the 8 people who were killed by him. But according to Nielsen himself, he killed 15 people.
While serving a prison sentence, Nilsson wrote his autobiography in which he recounted several other crimes he had committed. He wrote in the book about sexually assaulting a soldier who was drunk.
There is reason to call him perverted and eccentric. After bringing his prey home, he first sexually assaulted him. If his prey resisted, he would ruthlessly kill and engage in unnatural sex with the corpse. He used to keep the bodies of the people killed by him at home until they smelled rotten and had unnatural sex with the corpses whenever he could. He told the police, ‘I used to keep dead bodies in my house and have sex with them and talk to dead bodies.’
In 1983, after he was caught by the police, he was tried and the court sentenced him to 25 years in prison for the crime of 6 murders and 2 attempted murders, which was later commuted to life imprisonment. Nilsson was 37 at the time.
One day while in prison, Nilsson told a prison official that he had a terrible stomach ache. He was taken to the prison health center and treated. When the doctor offered to do abdominal screening, he said no and went into his cell by himself.
Lisa Noble, head of the health center at Full Sutton Prison, told the inquest: ‘He didn’t like the health centre, more specifically the staff at the health centre.’
He was then taken to a hospital and underwent surgery. But by then his body had already suffered a lot of damage. Nilsson passed away on May 12, 2018 due to a blocked pulmonary artery and bleeding in the abdomen.
