The Doll Creator
Russian historian Anatoly Moskvin was confined to a psychiatric facility when it was revealed he dug into the graveyards of over 40 children, mummified them, and kept them as dolls in his home. Moskvin visited over 700 cemeteries over the course of 11 years, but it was reported that he only mummified a total of 29 girls. During his trial in 2011, he told one of the families of his victims, “You abandoned your girls in the cold – and I brought them home and warmed them up.”
His family didn’t think anything of the mummified children because they looked like life-size dolls.
Moskin is currently in treatment at the facility, but can leave once he is “cured.” It is likely, however, that he will remain there for the rest of his life.
