Tamara Samsonova has shown us at 68-years-old, it is never too late to become a cannibalistic serial killer.
Samsonova allegedly beheaded and hacked up her victims for the last two decades. Her most recent victim was 79-year-old Valentina Ulanova. She confessed to giving her an overdose of sleeping pills before she took a hacksaw to behead and dismember her…while she was still alive. Her body was found in a nearby pond while there is footage of Samsonova carrying plastic bags of Ulanova’s body parts. Apparently, this happened after the two had an argument about dirty tea cups.
Authorities found diaries alongside her books of astrology and black magic in Samsonova’s home that contained details of what she did to her victims which all included dismembering and possibly cannibalism. Apparently, she particularly enjoyed eating the lungs of her victims. This is what nightmares are made of, folks.
Upon discovering her diaries, authorities are linking her to other unsolved murders in the past decade. They suspect her of killing her husband who went missing in 2005. His body was never found.
The diaries also contain details about how the former hotel worker killed some of her lodgers. She explicitly writes, “I killed my tenant Volodya, cut him to pieces in the bathroom with a knife, put the pieces of his body in plastic bags and threw them away.” Did she enjoy his liver with some fava beans and a bottle of chianti, too? Jesus. It seems as though she isn’t denying any of the accusations. She’s more concerned that her neighbors would find out. She told journalists, “It’s such a disgrace for me, all the city will know.”
In court she said, “I was getting ready to this court action for dozens of years. It was all done deliberately. This is no way to live. With this last murder I closed the chapter.” After the judge said that she was going to be arrested she responded, “I am guilty and I deserve a punishment.” When the judge said she would be held in custody, she smiled and clapped her hands. Kevin Spacey’s character in Se7en has nothing on this woman.
People are calling Samsonova “Granny Ripper” and “Grannyball Lecter,” but let’s just call her what she really is: straight-up batsh*t crazy.
