With the prison library is the serial killer dissatisfied. A year ago Mikhail Popkov had complained in an Interview that he had to read some books twice. He'll give an effort, not about his actions to think, he said at the time, and did Sudoku puzzles of the reporter to bring their own.
a Particularly ill spirits usually only with their own well-being. Since Monday Popkov is considered to be the worst serial killer in Russian history. A court in Irkutsk spoke to him guilty of a further 56 women killed – in addition to the 22 Victims, for the 54-Year-old seated already for a lifetime. Many of them died in a cruel way. Fatal to to you to police officers that they rose to him in the car: in the car of a strip.
Because the Mikhail Popkows Job in the Siberian city of Angarsk was, as he probably began in 1992 with the murders. Often young women were alone on the road, in the evening or at night on the way home. The helpful policeman offered to drive her home. For him, he explained his behavior later, were spoiled these women, because they drove themselves around and rose to a Stranger in the car. If you answered then is still wrong to his questions, him a drink, invite wanted to leave, he brought her home.
The Killing of well-enjoyed
their bodies were found on the roadside, in the forest or in cemeteries, often without clothes, and there was evidence of rape. Some woman's bodies were so bad, that the investigators assume that he had enjoyed the Kill, and have a murder addiction.
For his actions, he describes himself as spontaneous, he used what he had: a knife, a stick, or screwdriver. Local media reports, Popkov was already during his time in the police service in a negative and psychologists examined noticed. He was irritable and there was no one who adhered to social norms. He apparently had a note in his Service record.
Anyway, he was only a few years in the police, had previously made an apprenticeship as a mechanic, was gone with the army into Mongolia, and then had worked for the traffic police and the fire brigade, before he drove to 1998 Patrol. Later, he moved to a private security, for which he shuttled between Irkutsk and Vladivostok. He was athletic, went skiing and made Biathlon, and his daughter was a caring father.
How he became a killer? The unloving mother is also partly to blame? Or the father who took the boy to his Job as a grave-digger to the cemetery?
Mikhail Popkov suspected his wife to have betrayed him, bringing his anger on women. His wife and daughter believed, however, even after the first ruling of 2015 is still firmly in his innocence, and even performed on television. His daughter, then 27 years old, described the close relationship to the father and himself as a "Daddy's girl". Later it came out that he may have killed one of their teachers at the music school. A long time it was unclear how many years he had raged, yet today, the number of his victims seems to be uncertain.
in Front of the nose of his colleagues
Initially, the investigators assumed that he stopped in the year 2000 with the murders. However, after the first judgment Popkov admitted further offences of up to the year 2010. Almost 18 years, he has made, therefore, before the nose of his former colleagues hunting for women. However, in the small Siberian town money and staff were apparently so scarce that they came down on him for it.
in 2012, the investigators discovered the same tire tracks at the various crime scenes, and took DNA samples from several thousand people, drove the right type of car. In the summer of 2012, they arrested Mikhail Popkov in Vladivostok. In an Interview with the online portal Meduza a year ago, he claimed that he would have felt no satisfaction after the murders, but anxiety – however, after each Time a little less. He could not even explain why he killed again and again. But then he said about his feelings: "It's been so long I can't remember what it was like."
He spoke in the Interview about his carefree life in the prison in Irkutsk, where he waited for his process. There he had a clean bed, a daily routine, to always eat something. His daughter however, he had not seen for two years. Well, and the library leave to be desired. His life sentence will have to serve Popkov probably in a much this less comfortable penal colony. Some are speculating now that he had confessed to the other murders after the fact, to be not moved. (Editorial Tamedia)
