  1. Hello Mr. St. Estephe!
    I don't know a better way to show you this, so I'm posting a comment here:
    Some time ago, I discovered a case about a female Soviet serial killer and cannibal, only known by her four surnames: "Gordeeva-Dmitrieva-Andryunina-Plaksina"
    According to what the articles say, she was a migrant from Yakutia who killed and cannibalised five women in Kyrgyzstan's Chuy Valley during the 40s, and confessed to more than 40 similar murders across Russia, Siberia, Kazakhstan and Central Asia! I think this would be an interesting addition to your list.
    Articles here: (you might need a translator for this, it's in Russian only)
    (sorry for the doubled comment, new to Blogger and don't know how to edit my comments, or if you can do that at all)
