Russian authorities believe that Natalia Baksheeva (43) and her husband, Dmitry Baksheev (35) murdered up to thirty people and then ate them. They took delight in recording their macabre feast on a mobile phone.
It is believed that they used sedatives to render the victims unconscious before skinning them alive.
Some of the body parts were kept in the freezer, while others were preserved in jars full of saline solution. They ate the rest.
It is alleged that Natalia Baksheeva was able to persuade her husband, nicknamed “Devil” to murder a young waitress by the name of Elena Vashrusheva.
This followed a drunken argument in which Natalia, in a fit of jealousy, demanded that her husband kill the waitress.
The Worst Serial Killers In Russian History
It is now thought that the couple may have murdered up to 30 other people in the city of Krasnodar, a few hours from Sochi.
To date, Baksheev has been charged with one murder, and the investigation is continuing. If all 30 murders are confirmed, they will be considered amongst the worst serial killers in Russian criminal history.
It appears that Natalia Baksheeva suspected that the waitress had been trying to seduce her husband, and she became jealous.
This is according to the Russian Investigative Committee. According to her husband, the waitress was just one of many of their victims.
Dmitry Was Pressurized By His Wife
They produced an official statement about the case stating, “Because of his character and psychological state of mind Dmitry lived under pressure from his wife, so he obeyed.”
He suffers from health issues, including tuberculosis. It has been proved that this can induce mental health issues in sufferers, and Dmitry is having medical examinations.
Anton Lopatin, of the Russian Investigative Committee, informed investigators that Dmitry did not hesitate to use the knife that he always carried, to kill the waitress.
