A suspected ‘cannibal family’ is reported to have admitted killing and eating at least 30 people over an 18-year period. Police have found body parts including meat and skin throughout the house in southern Russia. Pictures issued by prosecutors, too gruesome to publish, show someone’s head on a platter surrounded by oranges. Another shows a suspect with someone’s severed hand in their mouth. A third picture shows body parts inside a jar where they were being preserved in some kind of liquid. Dmitry Bakshaev, 35, is one of the people identified as being involved and he is said to have told police he started eating humans in 1999 – the year the head on a platter picture was taken. His wife, Natalia, 42, has also been arrested after the discovery of the evidence at their home in Krasnodar. Bakshaev and his spouse stored human remains in their fridge and freezer as well as a cellar, according to sources in the Russian Investigative Committee which examines serious crime in Russia.
