Tamara Samsonova is not your typical grandma.
This 68-year-old woman from St Petersburg in Russia is a real-life serial killer who has brutally murdered 11 victims in the span of 20 years. To make matters worse, she dismembered, beheaded, and possibly ate the bodies of her victims, police reports say. Besides, most of the bodies they found had missing lungs and other internal organs.
Dubbed by the media as the ‘Granny Ripper,’ Samsonova was recently arrested by the police after a CCTV footage revealed her dumping the remains of Valentina Ulanova, her recent victim, in a garbage bag.
The old woman didn’t even bother denying the charges when she was confronted about it. She openly told the judge “I was getting ready to this court action for dozens of years. It was all done deliberately… There is no way to live. With this last murder I closed the chapter,” adding “I am guilty and I deserve a punishment.”
To make things creepier, investigators discovered her diary where she keeps records of her killings. On one entry, she wrote “I killed my tenant Volodya, cut him to pieces in the bathroom with a knife, put the pieces of his body in plastic bags and threw them away in the different parts of Frunzensky district.”
The police are now digging up their records and are finding it probable that the old woman is involved in many other killings in the area – possibly including her husband whom she reported missing in 2005. He was never found.
