Dennis confessed his crime in 1983. Dennis majorly killed homeless or gay men. Dennis’s other target were generally those men whom he met outside his home, or in a public transport or in bars.

Dennis would generally offer these men alcohol or home to stay and then he would bring these men in his residence in North London, where he used to kill them.

Dennis would usually strangle his victims until they were dead or unconscious. In case of strangulation when victims did not die but get unconscious, Dennis would drown them in his bath tub or sink or in a bucket of water.
