Dennis Nilsen has many monikers, and he has earned them all through his cruel killings of at least 16 innocent men and boys. Savannah explores Dennis' background and how he struggled with his sexuality, as well as how Dennis lured victim after victim to his apartment to strangle, dismember, and even store various dead bodies. Plus, Savannah examines the multiple times that Dennis could've been stopped and how his own foolishness ultimately led to him being caught and sentenced to life in prison without parole.
