Lately, I’ve been intrigued by the stories of serial killers. I think of these events often.
Nikolai Dzhumagaliev (born 1952), a serial killer operating in 1980, known as “Metal Fang” (for his unusual false teeth made from white metal) in the Soviet Union republic, Kazakhstan. A cannibal, he would often kill his women victims with an axe, carve the meat and serve it to his friends at suppers.
The total number of his victims is not known, although he was charged with a total of seven murders. Some sources put the total number of victims at 50 – 100. Found to be insane, he was sentenced to a psychiatric hospital in Tashkent, whence he escaped in 1989 while being transported to another facility. He was caught in 1991 in Fergana. Dzhumagaliev was released from a mental institution in Uzbekistan in January 1994. He is a free man, and is currently living with relatives in Eastern Europe.
That sounds like a 60 minutes story.
Nine prescription drugs including anti-depressants, anti-anxiety drugs and the sedative chloral hydrate were found in Anna Nicole’s blood…On the day of her arrival in Florida on February 5, she complained of chills and was later found to be running a fever at 105 degrees Fahrenheit (40.5 Celsius) caused by the perforation in an abscess in her left buttock, he said. “It is our determination that the cause of death is combined drug toxicity as a result of chloral hydrate and a therapeutic concentration of other medications,” said Perper. “A bacterial infection, a viral intestinal infection and possibly flu were contributory causes of death …. We did not find any evidence of homicide…”
A perforation in an abscess in her left buttock? Good lord.
Congratulations is in order to Robert Rutherford, the only person in this recording’s NCAA pool to correctly select the Final Four.
Congrats to him on that achievement.
