It’s thought that Moskvin who is said to speak 13 languages dug up the bodies at several cemeteries in the region of Nizhny Novgorod. Originally his identity was not known when the case first came to light however the local media soon uncovered the identity of the historian and journalist who is said to be a genius.

Police had been investigating the desecration of graves in the region, at first they suspected extremist groups. However when Moskvin’s parents visited him in the town and discovered his ghastly obsession, police made a link. According to local media Moskvin dug up the corpses from hundreds of cemeteries and took them to his small, three-bedroom flat in Nizhny Novgorod, carrying them in plastic bags. He then dressed the bodies and skeletons in stockings and dresses, not only that he made one of the bodies look like a teddy bear.

Neighbours described the 45 year old as a ‘genius’ however they did say he had a tendency to sleep in a coffin or on graveyard benches. Moskvin is thought to speak thirteen languages and a vast knowledge of history, he also would sometime speak at the local museum giving lectures.
