Well, here's a story that makes the combined efforts of Ed Gein and two seasons of Hannibal look like Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs:
Police found 29 little girls' bodies in a man's home... a man described as a 'genius.'
This week Anatoly Moskvin, 46, has been declared mentally unfit to stand trial, Inquisitr reports. Yup, no sh*t, Sherlock.
Police in Nizhny Novgorod, Russia, raided Moskvin's home in 2011 and discovered the mummified remains of 29 young girls - aged between 3 and 12 - dressed up in bright, colorful costumes. Some wore headscarves, stockings and masks to add to the festival of creepiness... and one was dressed as a teddy bear.
In a weird twist to the story, despite Moskvin evidently being insane, the man is apparently a 'genius' - he is a well-known historian and speaks 13 languages.
There's been no word on Moskvin's motivations or sick fantasies that drove him to dig up the dead bodies of 29 children and dress them in bizarre costumes, but then, it's kind of hard to fathom what moves the insane to do what they do.
A spokesperson for the prosecution confirmed:
After three years of monitoring him in a psychiatric clinic it is absolutely clear that Moskvin is not mentally fit for trial. He will therefore be kept for psychiatric treatment at the clinic.
Moskvin desecrated 150 graves to source the bodies for his ghoulish project, often journeying between hundreds of different cemeteries, spending the night within their gates.
Anyway, so that was all horribly disturbing. What do you think of this case of derangement and depravity?
