HUFFINGTON POST – A 68-year-old Russian woman accused of beheading multiple people may have also eaten parts of her victims, investigators fear.
Tamara Samsonova, dubbed the “Granny Ripper” by British tabloid The Sun, was arrested July 26 after she was spotted on surveillance cameras allegedly carrying bags full of the dismembered parts of her latest victim.
Police said they later found the severed head of 79-year-old Valentina Ulanova in a pond near St. Petersburg, according to the New York Daily News.
After Samsonova’s arrest, investigators said they uncovered horrifying evidence that suggests the suspect had been murdering and ripping apart her victims for 20 years.
She reportedly admitted to killing Ulanova — for whom she was a caregiver — after an argument over dirty dishes. She allegedly gave her victim sleeping pills and then used a hacksaw to dismember her while she was still alive.
