Russian ‘Cannibal Couple’ Suspected Of Killing and Eating human. According to the
Authorities they found human remains in glass jars and photos of severed body parts in the couple’s home.
By Dominique Mosbergen It was a chance discovery of a cellphone on a street that led investigators in the southwestern Russian city of Krasnodar to arrest a husband and wife, dubbed by local media the “cannibal couple,” suspected in one of the worst killing sprees in the nation’s history. Local news reports also says the couple may have killed and eaten dozens of victims since the 1990s. Construction workers stumbled upon the cellphone — a black Samsung — during road work on Sept. 11. They looked through the phone’s photos and chanced upon several gruesome images of a “man with different parts of a dismembered human body in his mouth,” the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs said this in a statement Tuesday. The crew contacted police, who, according to The Moscow Times, used the phone’s SIM card to track down its owner, 35-year-old Dmitry Baksheev. Authorities found the remains of a woman near Baksheev’s home, located on the property of a military aviation academy, soon after the cellphone discovery, according to Russian news agency RIA Novosti. Baksheev initially told police he didn’t kill the woman, but found her remains in a forest and took them home. He admitted snapping selfies with the body parts ― and later losing his phone, reported RT. Later, however, Baksheev admitted to killing the woman and confessed that he and his wife, Natalia Baksheeva, had practiced cannibalism on many occasions since the late 1990s, according to Russian media. The couple may be responsible for as many as 30 murders, local news outlets reported.
