Fears they also fed vic­tims to Top Gun pi­lots

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE - By COLIN HURST news@sun­

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.
