18 August 2012. You Can’t Make Shit Like This Up… Siberian Serial Stabber Caught Eating Dog… Gives New Resonance to the Term “Doggy Bag”


On Friday, Irkutsk Oblast cops said that they detained a 42-year-old resident of eastern Siberia over a stabbing rampage that he concluded by dining on his own dog. They went on to say in their release that the man attacked people in the streets of Irkutsk in three isolated incidents, stabbing one passerby to death and injuring two others, both pensioners. None of the numerous witnesses moved to intervene, or even alerted police, who only found out about it when one of the victims reported the incident. A citywide search operation resulted in the cops tracking down and arresting the man responsible. He fled his home in an unsuccessful attempt to escape arrest, abandoning his dinner, which consisted of dog meat (from his pet dog). The suspect, whose name was withheld, entered a guilty plea, but he failed to explain why he stabbed people or why he ate his dog. The Prokuratura opened a case on charges of intentionally inflicting grave bodily harm, punishable with up to 15 years in prison. However, the man may escape jail if a pending psychiatric check rules him insane.
