Russian Man Decorates His House with 29 Mummified Corpses

Looking for a roommate can be such a drag. Why not just head over to the local graveyard and dig up some companionship? That’s what this Russian guy did, and hey, it seemed to work out okay for him.

The 45-year-old
man, described as a “historian” is said to have roamed local cemetaries around Nizhny Novgorod, digging up as many as 29 female corpses. Though I’m not sure if he’s an actual historian or if that’s some kind of joke. If so that’s a little bit like calling a serial rapist a “gynecologist.” I’m not sure about that one but maybe Russian newspapers have a really sick sense of humor.

He would take them home, dress them in brightly colored dresses like giant life sized dolls and had them just chilling around the pad. Police also found plaques from tombstones, maps to local cemeteries and doll making guides in his home.
