Russian authorities have detained a guy in Tatarstan on suspicion of murdering 26 older girls near the Volga river.
The defendant allegedly tricked his way to the flats of older women living independently by impersonating an electrician, plumber, or social worker. The offenses had remained unsolved for ages.
However, on Tuesday, Russia’s Investigative Committee has called the defendant as 38-year-old Radik Tagirov from Kazan and stated that he was”currently habituated” to the murders.
He was diagnosed with DNA proof, shoe prints, along with other evidence from crime scenes, researchers said.
“A man suspected of committing a collection of particularly grave crimes of previous years was arrested in Tatarstan,” stated the Investigative Committee.
“According to the results of forensic analysis and investigation of biological objects and other hints of crimes found in the scene of this episode, it had been demonstrated that acts were perpetrated by a single individual.”
“This was signaled by the winner of this genotype and footprints of their attacker, in addition to the stereotypical character of his activities.”
Tagirov had a prior conviction for theft in 2009, the Committee included in an announcement.
“Following the conclusion of pressing investigative actions, a request will be transmitted to the courtroom to pick out a preventive measure in the kind of detention.”
