Tamara Samsonova: Baba Yaga/The Granny Ripper


This episode’s theme is brought to us by the tale of Baba Yaga. And, imagine my surprise, when I found out that there is actually a Russian serial killer who is nicknamed Baba Yaga! And she was 68 years old when she was arrested in 2015, which makes her close to 72 now. Also known as The Granny Killer, her real name is Tamara Samsonova, and her story is one that is also full of mysteries. For example, did she really cannibalize parts of her victims?
