Authorities Found 29 Female Corpses in a So-Called Genius Apartment
Nizhny Novgorod, a Russian town about 200 miles from Moscow, all seemed peaceful and well. Anatoly Moskvin, a resident of this town, was well liked by his neighbors who said he was a “genius” and admired his historical lectures at the local museum. What they didn’t know was that Moskvin had populated his flat with mummified corpses dressed in woman’s clothing for years.
Anatoly Moskvin was a historian and journalist known as a “genius” in his neighborhood because he could fluently speak 13 different languages.
The 29 corpses were discovered one day when his parents came to visit him. Each corpse was dressed in women’s clothing and there was even one corpse dressed as a teddy bear.
The ages of the deceased women ranged from 15-26 years old at the time of death. Their remains were completely dry before Moskvin could wrap them up in a plastic bag and carry them to his apartment.
It is estimated that Moskvin visited more than 750 cemeteries while choosing his many wives. He often slept on the graveyard benches when he wasn’t sleeping at home in the coffin he used as a bed.
Police were relieved to find an answer to the mystery of disturbed graves over the past few years. They originally suspected that the culprits were shady, pseudo-religious cults. Thankfully, with Moshvin caught, no more graves will be desecrated in the future.
