As part of a weekly series, Murder Mile blog will be investigating the profiles of some of the world's most infamous serial killers and murderers, by unearthing some interesting facts and titbits about their lives, loves, likes and dislikes, where they worked, where they lived and who they dated or married, all of which I hope will will give you more of an insight into them as a person, and even leading to an understanding of why they did what they did, instead of lazily defining this person by the horrific nature of their crimes and (more often than not) their kill-count.
Profile #1: Dennis Nilsen, the north London serial killer and necrophiliac who between December 1978 and January 1983 lured numerous vulnerable young men to their deaths in his flat, some of whom escaped, many of whom died and others who remain unidentified to this day.
Next week's profile: John Wayne Gacy - "The Killer Clown"
