Late in January, 2000, a 18-year-old Russian border guard named Oleg Protsenko had finally had enough. He had been routinely beaten and humiliated by the older conscripts in the army and decided to desert.


He needed a car to escape.

So, how did he set about escaping?

One night he left his unit in the Kaliningrad area on the Baltic Sea, taking a Kalashnikov assault rifle with him with the idea to steal a car. The problem was that the first car he came across contained five people.


He shot and killed all five occupants of the car (three men and two women).


Protsenko's body was found early the next morning in the stolen car, which he had driven into a forest. I guess he felt guilty for killing a bunch of innocent people.


Protsenko left a suicide note in the cars glove compartment that contained only three words (once translated into English) but that gave no insight into his crime. The note read, I'm sorry, Mum.
