The 'head in a saucepan' serial killer granny

Russia was shocked this week by the arrest of a 68-year-old woman being dubbed the babushka serial killer.. 

Tamara Samsonova murdered a 79-year-old companion for not washing tea cups. It gets worse.. she then cut up the body and dumped parts around town.. 

And worse: There is video of her dragging body parts from closed circuit TV--something police have enthusiastically embraced as the best evidence that the old woman did the crime.

And not just that crime.

RT followed the story and has an extensive report about the babushka wearing murderer.. This from the report:

The search there produced evidence suggesting that this was not the first violent crime committed by Samsonova. Further investigation led to a discovery straight out of a horror movie.
The investigators found a detailed diary she had kept for some years in three languages, the report said, in which Samsonova accounted for a dozen murders since the late 1990s.

And more:

Neighbors have described Samsonova as an “misfit.” It was revealed that she had previously been treated by a mental health clinic on more than occasion, and been diagnosed with schizophrenia.
Once detained for Valentina’s murder, she initially said that the victim set her up and that another neighbor, a health worker by trade, assisted her in the killing, which was proved to be a lie.
Samsonova also told police that she graduated from St. Petersburg ballet school, but in reality she used to be a bellhop in a hotel.
Police say that before killing her victims she used to sedate them with powerful drugs to immobilize them.
Various other names are being used to describe the the killer--the media enjoys dubbing someone something, in this instance creativity is taking hold. Like this: The 'Granny Ripper.' The Babushka Yaga. Or this.. Granny the Ripper. And countless more.

While some may be having obvious fun with the age of the criminal, the murders seem as horrific as anything conducted by a killer less her age. Brutal and inescapable.

And now with a diary, police  believe it's proove enough that she committed countless other crimes beyond the pale.

One neighbor told RT reporters that this entire scenario was even worse than a horror movie.
Funny she said that. The first thing I thought was that some creative movie maker out there was going to make a horror film based on this.

Which in itself seems tragic and gross just as much as the crime that may inspire it..

  1. This is disgusting. BUt you're right,I expect to see a movie out of this within a year. Low budget probably. Unless some hollywood elite things it's funny enough to make on a bigger level. They are evil people

    1. Not sure if I'd go as far as saying evil people.. but perhaps a better way to describe them is opportunists.. And yes, I think it will be a movie.

      Actually if you read the details of the case various sources, it already sounds like the plot of one.

Intrigue in China: Where is Fan Bingbing

No official statement has been made as to Fan's whereabouts, or any potential criminal charges against the actress.  However, in a country …
