CANNIBALS STALKED DATING WEBSITES FOR GIRLS TO EAT
Fears they also fed victims to Top Gun pilots
A CANNIBAL husband used online dating sites to recruit over THIRTY women to chomp – while his wife fed some of the gruesome grub to budding PILOTS, it is claimed.
Dmitry Baksheev’s co-accused wife Natalia has told police they had been scoffing their victims for over 18 YEARS.
It’s feared Natalia may even have fed human meat to student pilots in the military academy where she worked as a NURSE.
The pair, from Krasnodar, Russia, were detained after seven bags of body parts were found in their fridge and freezer.
At least one jar with pickled human remains and 19 slices of skin were also discovered at their flat. Many cans with steamed meat were found in their kitchen.
Earlier this week it was claimed Natalia, 42, had taken in her 35-year-old husband as an orphaned teenager and wed him when he turned 18.
Police fear that he found victims by setting up meetings on dating websites.
His wife is reported to have been shown the faces of missing women in southern Russia and identified dozens who she claimed were their victims.
A police source said: “Going through the photographs, the woman has recognised more than 30 victims she’d killed and eaten with her husband.”
Separate reports say Natalia was checked by a psychiatric hospital and found to be “mentally healthy”.
Baksheev was at first detained after a man found his mobile in the street in Krasnodar and saw images of him posing for selfies with a woman’s body parts.
“He took a selfie with the hand in his mouth, at the same time he put the fingers of the dead hand into his nose,” said a police report.
A source added: “The earliest date of their culinary experiment is December 28, 1999 – the date on one of the photos.
“We can see a cooked human head on a big plate surrounded by mandarin oranges. They put olives into the eyes and a lemon on the nose.”
A police search found body parts in a rubbish container near the hostel where the pair lived, and a red-haired woman’s head in a metal bucket, with human skin nearby.
More human remains were found in a cellar. In their homewere , “video lessons for cannibals”.
The pair used ether and another drug to make their victims sleep, it is alleged.
They lived in the hostel of the Military Aviation Academy that belongs to the Russian Defence Ministry.
A worker said: “Each time we tried to enter their room, they started wildly shouting. Natalia is aggressive, so we did not risk it.”
An investigator said the initial criminal probe is into the death of one woman. Other alleged murders are “being checked by our officers”, she said.
