Grave robber lived with mummified corpses of children

GRAVE robber who lived with the mummified corpses of 29 children has refused to apologise for his crime

Anatoly Moskvin, 59, appeared at a custody hearing in Russia at the end of October, hoping to be released from a psychiatric hospital to care for his elderly mother, but he has refused to apologise for his horrific crimes, claiming that the parents “buried their daughters, and this is where I believe their rights over them finished”.

The court heard that Moskvin applied lipstick and make-up to the deceased children, aged three to twelve, and put music boxes in their chests. He pleaded guilty in 2011 to 44 counts of abusing the graves of girls.

Moskvin lived with his mother at the time, who claims she was aware that he had ‘dolls’ but didn’t realise they were human remains.

She said: “We saw these dolls but we did not suspect there were dead bodies inside. We thought it was his hobby to make such big dolls and did not see anything wrong with it.”

A judge last week renewed Moskvin’s detention in a psychiatric hospital for another six months.
