Evgeny Chuplinsky has been found guilty of murdering and mutilating 19 sex workers in Novosibirsk, Siberia over a time period of seven years
A notorious and sadistic serial killer nicknamed ‘Russia’s Jack The Ripper’ has been convicted in the murder of 19 sex workers in Siberia.
Evgeny Chuplinsky, 52, admitted to having sex with some of his victims shortly before killing them, and carving satanic signs on many of the dismembered corpses.
At home, he was ‘happily married’ to a glamorous and successful dentist – but lived a double life butchering sex workers who he claimed were ‘bad for society’, a jury found.
The former policeman was found guilty of murdering and mutilating 19 sex workers in Novosibirsk, Siberia over a time period of seven years.
A jury in Novosibirsk just returned a unanimous verdict to convict him of the multiple homicides.
He strangled his victims, aged 18 to 31, then used a knife to slice off the breasts of his victims, and severed their heads and limbs, while also stealing their valuables.
He hid their body parts around the Siberian city of Novosibirsk, and sought to confuse investigators by making it appear the killer had a satanic motive, carving devilish depictions on dismembered body parts.
‘He made friends with the women, asked to spend time with them, drove them away to remote places and killed them,’ said a state prosecutor.
‘Then he dismembered the bodies, throwing away the body parts – heads, arms, legs and others – leaving them along the roads or at dumps.’
Chuplinsky’s sentencing is scheduled for March. Russian state prosecutors have asked for a life term in a harsh penal colony.
All his killings were between 1998 and 2005 – yet it took Russian police until now to bring him to justice.

In an effort to snare the serial killer, some 5,000 local men were required to give DNA samples, 8,000 witnesses questioned and 300 forensic analyses completed.
Described as a ‘good family man’ and ‘perfect husband’, he claimed: ‘I am not Winnie the Pooh – but also very far from being a monster.’
After quitting the police, he worked as a taxi driver and later in the construction industry.
He was known to neighbours in Novosibirsk as ‘caring and kind’, and there was ‘disbelief’ when he was charged and labelled as a Russian Jack the Ripper.
His wife Vera, a respected dentist who knew nothing of his double life has refused to speak in detail about his reign of terror but admits that he was a ‘maniac’.
