Russian bodysnatcher refuses to apologise for stealing corpses of girls for his ‘doll collection’
Medical committee recommends Anatoly Moskvin's release, but court overturns request
In a bizarre case of its kind in Russia, a man who was put behind bars for digging up corpses of girls, has refused to apologise to the victims' parents.
According to a report in the Daily Mail, Anatoly Moskvin, 53, a historian from Nizhny Novgorod, Russia, dug up graves and removed corpses of 29 young girls and lived with them in his home. He dressed them up like ‘dolls’ with clothes and boots while applying lipstick and make-up on their faces. He even marked the birthdays of the dead.
Strangely, his parents who lived in the same home as him claimed to know nothing of his ghastly activities.
Anatoly refused to apologise to the parents of the victims as he attended a hearing amid efforts being made to have him released from a psychiatric hospital to take care for his elderly mother and also to live with his new girlfriend.
Anatoly, who had served as a translator for military intelligence in the Red Army, claimed he wanted to become an English language teacher to the children following an initiative by President Vladimir Putin to boost foreign languages in schools.
Though a medical body had asked for his release saying that his mental condition had been treated, the court, however, overturned the recommendation.
