The cannibal woman believed to have eaten up to 30 people with her husband has been declared sane by a medical team.
The infamous Russian Cannibal couple Natalia Baksheeva, 42, and Dmitry Baksheev, reportedly confessed to killing up to 30 women.
The couple were arrested in October 2017 as the main suspects for the murder of a woman in the city of Krasnodar in south-western Russia’s Krasnodar Krai region.
During a recent medical examination of Natalia Baksheeva, medical professionals of the Serbsky National Medical Research Centre for Psychiatry and Addiction found her to be sane of mind.
The cannibal couple were caught by pure chance, after a group of construction workers found a mobile phone which contained photos of Dmitry Baksheev with a severed hand in his mouth.
Police traced the phone to the couple and raided their home in the grounds of a Russian military academy, where they found the remains of the murdered woman.
Glass jars of pickled remains as well as still unidentified frozen body parts and ‘steamed human meat’ were also found.
Among the horrific findings, police found remains of their last victim, identified as Elena Vashrusheva, 35, according to Russian media, who also report that the couple have been active cannibals since 1999.
The couple have been detained since and the investigation is ongoing.
The Russian Investigative Committee continues to investigate the confession of Natalia that she killed and ate at least 30 women along with her husband.
The couple have reportedly since retracted this confession, saying they only killed waitress Elena.
Some of the victims were allegedly lured from dating sites and were reported missing after arranging dates with men on the site.
However Russian authorities say there is no confirmation yet of the mass murders and the investigation remains open.
