The purpose of police
officers is to protect and to serve. One such police officer that did the
absolute opposite was Russian serial killer, Mikhail Popkov. Over the course of
eight years, Popkov slaughtered as many as 29 women. The manner in which he
killed women varied. He axed, stabbed, slashed, and strangled women to death.
The women he killed were all full-figured, and were said to resemble his mother
who had abused him throughout his childhood. When Popkov targeted a
victim, most frequently at local bars, he would bring them home and force them
to strip naked before brutally murdering them and having sex with their
blood-soaked bodies. At least one victim was beheaded while another was found
with their heart gouged out.
After his arrest in 2012, he
confessed that he stopped killing women in 2002 after becoming impotent due to
a sexually transmitted disease he contracted through one of his victims. He was
tracked down after analysis of the DNA of 3,500 police officers and former
police officers was made available. Other officers were criticized for providing
Popkov with alibis for several of the murders. He was charged with 24
murders but police suspect him in several others.
