Dubbed “Grannyball Lecter” by the media, 68-year-old Tamara Samsonova is suspected of killing at least 14 people and feasting on their bodies.
The St. Petersburg woman was arrested this week after she was caught on CCTV dragging a black trash bag which contained the hacked body of her 79-year-old friend, Valentina Ulanova. Reportedly, the two ladies fought over dirty tea cups and Samsonova did the only rational thing: she killed her.
After her arrest, police discovered a diary in her apartment that outlined at least 14 more brutal killings, one of which could be her husband who went missing in 2005.
According to The Daily Star, she wrote: “I killed my tenant Volodya, cut him to pieces in the bathroom with a knife, put the pieces of his body in plastic bags and threw them away.”
While in the courtroom, Samsonova told the judge, “I was getting ready for this court action for dozens of years. It was all done deliberately. With this last murder I closed the chapter.”
Judge Roman Chebotaryov said: “I am asked to arrest you. What do you think?”
The gran, who was put into custody, replied: “You decide, your honour. I am guilty and I deserve a punishment.”
