20-year-old ex-cadet and barman Konstantin Ivanov of Saint Petersburg loved being a bad guy. He would tell girls all kind of cool stories about him being a hardened criminal and getting caught in a shootout with his enemies. On 5 June, 2016 Konstantin decided to make his dreams true and killed 31-year-old taxi driver by slashing his throat with a knife. Then he took a selfie, making sure his hand covered in blood were very visible on the picture, and send it to numerous girls. The trial started in the end of May, 2017.
