Just call her a regular Raskolnikov: Tamara Samsonova of St. Petersburg was arrested for killing a woman after the victim’s headless body was found near a local pond.
Except unlike the Dostoevsky’s famous literary murderer, Samsonova confessed in her diary to beheading and chopping up at least 10 people during a 20-year span.
The “Granny Ripper”, as she is now known, has been described by an investigator as a “huge danger to those around her.” (No shit, Sherlock). Police are now re-opening cold cases to see whether Samsonova was involved.
The serial killer kept a series of journals documenting her grisly activities, along with black magic books. Videos have emerged of her allegedly carrying body parts in a bag.
Police are investigating whether she is responsible for the disappearance of her husband, who she reported missing back in 2005. His body was never found.
She also blew a super creepy kiss to the camera while in custody.
