SERIAL killer Dennis Nilsen boasted he was better known than David Beckham.

Nilsen, who murdered 12 from 1978 to 1983, said in a 2013 typed letter: “A thought has just hit me. What I have in common with Beckham?


“Answer: We both have exhibits in Madame Tussauds.

“Alas, like all sportsmen, his star will fade in time and he will be melted down and replaced by some other new current sensation.

“Worse still, I guess, my infamy is destined to go on and on like a skull and crossbones tattoo on Britannia’s left buttock.”

Nilsen, who called himself Des, also reveals he was working by transcribing books into braille while in prison.

The letter is selling for £350 on US “murderbilia” site Supernaught.

Another letter, up for £900, was sent to his solicitor after his arrest in 1983.

It asks the brief to visit him in Brixton jail, London, to collect trial notes.

Nilsen died in Full Sutton jail, York, of cancer age 72 in 2018.

He is the subject of ITV drama Des starring David Tennant from September 14.
