"There's More": Detective who found the victims of serial killer Dennis Nilsen believes the killer "Des" got away with others who were never found

  • Hywel Jones was part of the investigation team that found the victims in the 1980s
  • The 59-year-old former official believes there are other unreported victims
  • Dennis Nilsen was sentenced to life in prison after killing 12 young men

The detective who found the victims of serial killer Dennis Nilsen believes the killer got away with other murders that were never discovered.

Hywel Jones was part of the investigation team that searched the suspect's garden in London in the 1980s.

The 59-year-old, who spoke to David Tennant after the release of the drama series Des, believes there are other victims who have not been reported.

Mr. Jones, who left the force after 25 years, told The Sun: “Unfortunately, fewer people have missed Nilsen's victims. They were "down and outs".

"The Met police did not want to properly identify these victims as it would expose the lack of resources they have pumped into missing persons cases."

“They were able to identify some of the bodies with modern technology because they still have the bones, but tragically, the victim's families were never informed.

“I was relieved to see that Nilsen went down for murder, but he should have done more than he did. There are more victims. & # 39;

Dennis Nilsen killed at least 12 young men and boys and confessed to dismembering them, boiling their heads, and engaging in necrophilia.

He was arrested in 1983 before being sentenced to life imprisonment on November 4 of the same year.

Mr. Jones, who now works as the Trial Server, spoke about the intensity of the findings on the victims' body parts, including a "small crumbling foot in a sock".

The former officer spoke out following the release of ITV's three-part series, with David Tennant playing the serial killer role.
