    Russia - Suspected serial killer of prostitutes arrested in Novosibirsk - 2 May 2016

    Police say they have arrested the 'Russian Ripper' amid claims he brutally murdered at least 17 prostitutes, painted signs with their blood and dumped their bodies in landfill sites.

    Detectives say DNA technology helped to track down a 51-year-old former policeman - who had previously been arrested for the murders and later released a decade ago.

    They believe he may have been responsible for the murder of at least 17 prostitutes, and possibly many more, in the city of Novosibirsk in south-central Russia's Novosibirsk Oblast region.

    I wonder if this is related to Mikhail Popkov.

    Hi tarabull - Wow, what freaks! From the article you linked:
    "If Popkov is convicted for the new murders he’s confessed to, it would make him the third-worst serial killer in history behind Luis Garavito and Pedro Lopez. Both Garavito and Lopez operated in Colombia and were convicted for killing 138 and 110 children respectively. Both men are however still suspected of having committed more than 300 murder each. Despite this, Lopez was released from prison in 1998."

    What!?!
