Hello, this post is about a Russian serial killer , who was caught on camera, but it still not apprehended. Currently, there are 23 murders confirmed to be committed by the Volga maniac by DNA test and another 9 believed to be committed by the same person because of matching MO.

SUSPECT : Russian police fear the Volga Maniac may have killed 36 people (Pic: EAST2WEST). “A £36,500 reward has been issued for information leading to the arrest of the maniac.” The serial killer suspect is believed to be seen on spooky footage prowling at a pensioner’s flat in October 2016.

Tagirov had previously been convicted in 2009 for theft. Investigators said in a statement that the suspect was identified using DNA evidence and shoe prints obtained from the crime scenes.

Earlier local media reports indicate that most of his victims were elderly women, between 75 and 90 years old, who lived alone. Investigators said that the suspect posed as a social services or utilities worker to enter the apartments.

Once inside, the suspect strangled the women with hands or nearby objects, and he often took some valuables and money from their homes. In 2017, federal investigators tripled the original reward from 1 million to 3 million rubles (about $40,000) for information that would help identify the killer.

Reports suggest that the total number of his victims could be up to 32, what made him one of the most prolific serial killers in modern Russia.

This time, it’s the Volga Maniac . For those who don’t know, he’s an unidentified serial killer who murdered 32 elderly women (ages 75-90) in Russia . I think only one of his victims ever survived. The craziest thing about this guy is the fact he’s actually been caught on video and his face can be seen

The Volga Maniac . In the early months of 2011, a mysterious Russian serial killer would emerge from Kazan, the capital of Tatarstan. Police were unable to learn why this victim had been targeted, but they suspected that it had something to do with the woman's pension: as she had previously worked

In a video released by the police online, a handcuffed Tagirov could be seen admitting he committed murders but he didn't specify how many.

When asked by the police why all his victims were elderly women and why he decided to kill them instead of just robbing them, he said he couldn't explain that.

"All that happened spontaneously. I wanted to eat. I lived with my mother," he said when answering what motivated him to commit the first murder. He said he couldn't recall when exactly it took place.

Tagirov said that he chose to strangle the women as he thought it was "quiet, fast" and "painless for them."

The suspect reportedly committed his first murder back in 2011 in Kazan. Within months that year several more women were found in the same city. One managed to survive, but she was blind and could not describe the attacker.
