As authorities in Cleveland, Ohio, demolish the home where Ariel Castro held three women captive for over a decade, the owners of the London, England, apartment, in which serial killer Dennis Nilsen killed three, plan to sell it. The apartment in North London’s Muswell Hill is listed for £265,000, a steal according to the Daily Mail that reports comps in the neighborhood listing for £100,000 more.

Nilsen is currently serving a life sentence for murdering, raping and dismembering 15 young men between 1978 and 1983, three of them at the Cranely Gardens flat that is currently on the market. Nilsen tried to dispose of the body parts by flushing them down the toilet, a practice that plugged the sewer lines and led to his arrest.
