Cannibalism has been around for a while and many have tried to figure out what leads people to eat human flesh. But regardless of the reason, this unusual appetite can have horrifying consequences as has been seen throughout history.
43-year-old Natalia Baksheeva is believed to have eaten around 30 people and also pushed her husband to murder a waitress. Police found steamed and frozen human remains in the couple’s kitchen and Natalia faces 15 years in prison if convicted.
While the remains belong to the waitress Elena Vashrusheva, police also found a jar of pickled remains and 19 slices of skin. Natalia incited her husband to murder the woman who she thought was flirting with him.
The investigation also found that after her husband stabbed Elena, Natalia dismembered her body and took selfies with severed parts. Reports suggest that she confessed to having consumed 30 victims in the past 30 years.
Most of these victims were women lured by the couple using online dating platforms. It is still not known if a picture showing a severed head served for dinner garnished with oranges in 1999 found at the flat has been investigated.
