The police of the Volga region are about to complete the investigation of the criminal case, the materials of which can shock even those with nerves of steel. Twenty-three-year-old cannibal Alexander Bychkov is accused of killing at least nine people. The perpetrator was gutting corpses and eating the insides to impress his girlfriend.
The cannibal was killing homeless people. According to investigation, the killings and cannibalistic feasts were taking place presumably in the Penza region. The insane killer buried the remains of half-eaten corpses near the town of Belinsky, in the south-west of the region. To kill the homeless, the murderer used a common kitchen knife.
Human remains were indeed uncovered at places of burial during investigation. “In two cases, after the murder he separated the heart from the body to eat the human heart later,” law-enforcement officers said. It was also reported that the perpetrator was eating the livers of his victims too.
The perpetrator “formed a negative attitude towards the people, who abused alcohol and lead a beggary, roguish lifestyle,” experts said.
The cannibal would conduct meticulous preparations for his crimes. He carefully scrutinized criminal literature. Alexander Bychkov “developed a criminal plan, prepared a weapon and studied the examples of similar crimes committed by serial killers.” He also mastered “various strategies and methods to conceal crime traces, including the bodies of the victims.”
