Dennis Nilsen criminologist claims serial killer ‘fancied him’ on This Morning
Professor David Wilson, who knew murderer Dennis Nilsen, revealed he thought the serial killer "fancied him".
The 63-year-old criminologist met Nilsen when he was 23, and new the killer throughout his arrest and up until his death in 2018.
He told Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield on Monday's This Morning "I think he fancied me" as he recalled a moment between them in a police cell.
Wilson explained: "I interviewed Nilsen about another matter. He leaned over the desk and touched my hand and said 'do you have to go?' and he knew that I knew those were the words that he used when killing his first victim."
He added: "I think he fancied me."
David also told the ITV show that when he first met Nilsen, he believed him to be "ordinary and banal".
He explained: "He looks like a weedy geography teacher who'd struggle to control his GCSE class."
Nilsen was one of the UK's most notorious killers, murdering at least 12 men in London between 1978 and 1983.
