About the event

Our brand new live show is back in September 2023 for the new academic year where we delve into one of Britians most sinister crimes. Based on the true story of the Nilson killings and US serial killer Dahmer, we're giving you the chance to experience the incredible work of the post-mortem & forensic processes used to evidence the cause of death & identity of the victims as well as piece together the actions of a serial killer.


The show examines the killings of 23 people who have been brutally murdered or dismembered, exposes the anatomy of the human body immersed in a forensic plot full of fast paced twists and turns. Apply real forensic tests similar to those used to catch & prosecute Dennis Nilson & Jeffrey Dahmer.

Dissect real organ specimens, observe and learn the science of forensics & pathology used when a suspect tries to dismember, degrade, cook and even consume their victims. Is it possible to deceive the science and conspire to carry out the perfect murder?

Hold onto your hat... brace your stomach for this cutting edge insight into dark world of homocide detective work, forensics and pathology in this fictional, but chilling case.

The Case

Julia Moors was last seen on 31st December 2022 at a New Years Eve party in Clapham, she was seen on CCTV walking North along Clapham High Street towards the tube station at 2255 after which she was never seen again. There is no digital footprint of her beyond the purchase of 4 bottles of wine on New Years Eve at 1854 and an Instagram post at 2044.

On the evening of 20th January 2023 police excavated remains at an allotment in North London following reports of a body. Police immediately traced the owner of the plot to a Jack Brewer in Finchley.

​Police raided Jack Brewers home address in Finchley, North London on the 20th January 2023.

Upon access, nothing could brace them for what they were about to discover...

Inside the flat were human remains found in squalor conditions belonging to at least 21 other people, their identities at present unknown.

Forensics confirm at least three bodies have been subject to cannibalistic activity.

The victims totalling 23 people.
