Sasha Spesivtsev

On October 5, 1999, siberian cannibal child killer Alexander Spesivtsev was declared insane and committed to a mental hospital by a court for raping and killing four little girls. His mother, Lyudmila Spesivtseva, was sentenced to 13 years in prison for helping lure his victims to their home in the Siberian coal mining town of Novosibirsk.
 

 
 

Sasha Spesivtsev

Twenty-seven year old Russian Sasha Spesivtsev took it upon himself to begin a war against those children he saw as detrimental to society. He was responsible for the murders of at least 19 street kids who he then took home and cooked and ate with the aid of his mother, Lyudmila.

At the time of his arrest Sasha was an unemployed black marketeer and former mental patient living in the Siberian town of Novokuznetsk. His method was to lure homeless children from the streets and train stations to his home.

It was only when he began to discard of body part onto the river Aba in summer 1996 that police became suspicious that a serial killer was roaming the streets of Siberia.

However, since the victims were homeless children there was not much weight put into the police investigation. Had police acted on complaints by Spesivtsevís neighbours they may have been able to save the lives of many children. One of Spesivtsevís neighbors continuously complained to police of the putrid stench of decay and deafening rock music coming from his apartment.

Police ignored the complaints, they saw it more as a cleanliness and civil problem rather than suspected homicide. No officer ever came to investigate the complaints nor even look up the history of th eman in questions. Had they done so they would have discovered that in 1991 a teenage girl had been found dead at the manís apartment.

Finally after repeated complaints police did investigate a year later and found 15-year-old Olga Galtseva on the couch of Spesivtsevís apartment with multiple stab wounds to her stomach and chest, she was still alive but barely.

Before passing away Olga told police that she, together with two other 13-year-old friends, helped the cannibal mother carry some bags to the apartment. Once the girls were inside the unit they were trapped by Sasha and a fierce dog. Police assumed that that the other two were dead but due to a lack of funds were unable to look for them in the gardens around the apartment block nor do tests on any body parts they found.

Police did however hapharzardly look around the apartment and found to their horror body parts strewn everywhere. In the bathroom they found a headless corpse and on the living room floor, in plain view, was a human rib cage. All in all they found evidence of 19 different murders. Enough to try Spesivtsev for serial murder.

The prosecutor for the trial, Alexei Bugayets believed that during the course of time they would add more bodies to the tally. Bugayets told newspapers that a thorough search of Spesivtsev's apartment revealed at least 80 pieces of bloodstained clothing. He said tests established that none of them contained blood from anyone in Spesivtsev's family.

Sasha, described by authorities as an "intellectual" who has written some books on philosophy, previously had been released from a psychiatric hospital. He was committed after being convicted of murdering his girlfriend.

In prison he spends all his time undergoing psychiatric testing and writing poems about the evils of democracy. Asked how he justifies his crimes, he rhetorically answered, "How many people have our democracy destroyed?... If people thought about that, there wouldn't be any of this filth. But what can you do?" His mother, on the other hand, has withdrawn into herself and has not uttered a word since her arrest. Sasha, burdened with the heart of a true black marketeer, wants to sell his head to some institute so they can study his brain, and get paid, "in advance, in cigarettes."

Alexander Nikolayevich Spesivtsev (born March 1, 1970), also referred to as Sasha Spesivtsev, is a Russian serial killer who practised cannibalism on his victims. His crimes were discovered by chance in 1996.

He was born in the Siberian town of Novokuznetsk in 1969, and was raised in an abusive home, with a violent father who tortured the whole family. As an adult, he murdered his girlfriend and was committed to a psychiatric institution, from which he was later released. He subsequently shared a flat with his mother, Ludmilla, and with his Dobermann.

In 1996, a pipe breakage forced the neighbours to call a plumber; the problem was determined to be in the Spesivtsev apartment. The plumber had the door opened by force, since no one was answering the knock.

When authorities entered the flat they saw blood covering the walls. In the kitchen there were bowls with pieces of human bodies. In the bathtub they found a mutilated, headless body. Olga Galtseva was found, also mutilated but still alive, on the sofa. She was taken to a hospital, where she was able to tell the public prosecutor about what had happened. She died seventeen hours later.

Spesivtsev's mother had lured three girls into the flat, where he then raped and beat them. He killed one of the girls, and forced the other two to cut her into pieces in the bathtub. The mother cooked her body parts for dinner. The second girl was killed by the Dobermann. Spesivtsev escaped over the balcony when he heard someone opening the door. He was later captured while attempting to rape a woman in her own apartment.

The police found a diary which detailed the murders of nineteen girls. Spesivtsev is generally suspected of having been responsible for over a dozen other deaths, but Russian authorities lack the funds to successfully investigate those cases.

Spesivtsev was declared guilty in all 19 cases and sentenced to death; Ludmilla Spesivtseva denied any involvement, but was convicted as an accomplice and sentenced to life in prison.

 
 

Sasha Spesivtsev (19+)

In a one man crusade to cleanse modern Russia from the permissiveness of democracy, Sasha Spesivtsev, 27, killed at least 19 street children who he saw as the detritus of society. Inexplicably, with the help of his mother, he also cooked and ate them.

Sasha, an unemployed black marketeer and former mental patient, would lure his homeless victims from the streets and local train stations in the Siberian town of Novokuznetsk to his home. Suspicions of a serial killer active in the area surfaced the summer of 1996 when body parts appeared in river Aba near the school where Sasha's mom, Lyudmila, worked. However, the investigation moved at a snail's pace due to the nature of the victims -- the poor children of the forgotten underclass -- and the inept Russian judicial beaurocracy (see Andrei Chikatilo for further details of Soviet burocratic blunders).

During the initial stages of the investigation one of Sasha's neighbors repeatedly complained to police of the deathly stench and deafening music coming from his apartment. No one ever came to investigate even though in 1991 a teenage girl was found dead in his place. A year later, when police finally entered his home they found 15-year-old Olga Galtseva dying on the couch with multiple stab wounds to her stomach. In the bathroom they found a headless corpse and in the living room there was a rib cage.

Before dying Olga told police that she, together with two other 13-year-old friends, helped the cannibal mother with some bags to her apartment. Once inside they were trapped by Sasha and a fierce dog. Authorities assume that Olga's two little friends are dead. However, they claim they lack the funds to dig for their bodies or perform any genetic testing to establish the identities of the body parts they have recuperated.

Alexei Bugayets, a prosecutor for the Kemerovo region, which includes Novokuznetsk, said investigators believe they now can prove Spesivtsev killed 19 people, and expect to add dozens of other cases, the Tribune reported. Bugayets said a search of Spesivtsev's apartment revealed 80 bloodstained pieces of clothing. He said tests established that none of them contained blood from anyone in Spesivtsev's family.

Sasha, described by authorities as an "intellectual" who has written some books on philosophy, previously had been released from a psychiatric hospital. He was committed after being convicted of murdering his girlfriend.

In prison he spends all his time undergoing psychiatric testing and writing poems about the evils of democracy. Asked how he justifies his crimes, he rhetorically answered, "How many people have our democracy destroyed?... If people thought about that, there wouldn't be any of this filth. But what can you do?" His mother, on the other hand, has withdrawn into herself and has not uttered a word since her arrest. Sasha, burdened with the heart of a true black marketeer, wants to sell his head to some institute so they can study his brain, and get paid, "in advance, in cigarettes."
