Andrei Chikatilo

Andrei Chikatilo

Andrei Chikatilo was a Russian serial killer who targeted children and was said to have used parts of their anatomy as chewing gum while he walked the streets. The Soviet state was adamant that serial killers were a product of western moral failings and that the crimes were not related. Many of his victims were pinned on other men including his first murder even though a great deal of evidence pointed in his direction at the time. Andrei's job was to travel between factories delivering parts which let him spread out murders in different jurisdictions which of course was hampered by a lack of communication between police services. He was at one point arrested for acting suspiciously in public and found to have knives, rope, and Vaseline in his possession but this did not lead to him being charged with any murders.
