Tamara Samsonova

Tamara Samsonova

Crimes: Serial Killer, Cannibalism

Tamara Samsonova used to be a looker. I kid you not. She was a good looking woman — way back when. Obviously she didn’t age well. I have to wonder which withered away first, her good looks or her soul. Right now she has neither. She is hellishly ugly from the inside out.

Tamara Samsonova is now known as the “Granny Ripper” and “Baba Yaga”. The elderly woman from St. Petersburg, Russia is famous for drugging, dismembering and eating at least 11 people. She didn’t achieve the hellish depths that her hero, Andrei Chikatilo did. He raped a mutilated at least 52 victims before he was caught and executed. That’s not to say Tamara Samsonova didn’t give it a damn good try.

It took over two decades for the evil hellbitch to achieve the death toll she did. Her victims included her husband, her lodgers and her friends.

Tamara Samsonova was very pleased with her horrific achievements. She wrote about them in her diary, in Russian, English and German. I think she wrote in the languages in which she was proficient because she anticipated the time when she’d be caught and exposed. I think she wanted her evil deeds to be known worldwide, just like her hero’s. Indeed, when she was caught, she blew a kiss to reporters.

“I killed my tenant Volodya, cut him to pieces in the bathroom with a knife, put the pieces of his body in plastic bags and threw them away in the different parts of Frunzensky district,” the hellbitch wrote. She likewise confessed to 9 other murders in her diary, although her poems, lyrics and other scribblings hint at more.

Tamara Samsonova’s murderous routine was to first poison or drug victims. When they were rendered comatose the nasty, evil bitch started chopping them into pieces. The neighbours never heard screams or such from her flat. I hope and pray that means the victims died immediately.

During the process of dismembering the victims, Tamara Samsonova removed the internal organs. What she did with them is not positively known, but investigators with Russia’s Investigative Committee don’t exclude the possibility she ate them. She said she did, so I’m not going to argue.

So after decades of murder, how did the brutal, sadistic, POS hellbitch get caught? She got caught because her last victim, 79-year-old Valentina Ulanova, was heavy, and her neighbourhood in St. Petersburg has CCTV cameras.

Here’s what happened. Tamara Samsonova was Valentina Ulanova’s caregiver for some time, but alas, in July 2015, the victim decided she no longer wanted her to share her apartment. Apparently, the Granny Ripper doesn’t take rejection well.

In her diary, Tamara Samsonova had written how much she loved the old lady, and enjoyed living with her. Those fond feelings obviously didn’t count for anything when the murderer was mad.

“I came home and put [a] whole pack of Phenazepamum – 50 pills – into [Valentina Ulanova’s] Olivier salad. She liked it very much,” said Tamara Samsonova. The drug caused the old lady to pass out.

“I woke up after 2 a.m. and she was lying on the floor. So I started cutting her to pieces,” said the murderous bitch. Note: Valentina Ulanova wasn’t dead before the cutting began. The killer used a handsaw she’d borrowed from neighbours years before.

“It was hard for me to carry her to the bathroom,” continued Tamara Samsonova. “She was fat and heavy. I did everything at the kitchen where she was lying.”

The Granny Ripper began with the head. She put it into a large saucepan and cooked it on the stove. Ewwww. She also boiled the arms.

After dismembering Valentina Ulanova into manageable pieces, she wrapped the parts in curtains and stuffed them into bags. She then carried the bags out of her building and dumped them in various places in her area. She only managed to get the legs and hips as far as a nearby back yard. Other, smaller pieces were dumped near a pond on Dimitrova Street. Where the saucepan with the head wound up, nobody knows except the killer. Likewise with the internal organs.

Because the victim had been heavy, it took Tamara Samsonova 7 trips to dispose of the body parts. She’d had to drag the bags, leaving behind blood trails in the building and outside.

When she was done her horrific tasks, she returned to the apartment she’d shared with her victim. She didn’t want to return to her own apartment — she’d turned it into an absolutely filthy sty.

On July 26, 2015 neighbourhood dogs discovered the remains. A full-blown police hunt for the killer was immediately launched.

Meantime, back at the victim’s apartment, a social worker arrived and wanted to check on Valentina Ulanova. Tamara Samsonova wouldn’t allow her in, of course, so the police were called. I’m sure the hellbitch was thrilled to bits — she immediately confessed to murdering 4 people.

The police soon had more than enough evidence to confirm they were dealing with the killer of Valentina Ulanova and others. They searched Tamara Samsonova’s disgustingly filthy apartment and discovered the confessional diary, blood smears in her bathroom and a sharp knife. They also found the business card of a man whose torso was discovered in 2003.

When the 68-year-old evil hellbitch was taken to court to appear before Judge Roman Chebotaryov, she was invited to address the court. She admitted to the judge, “I am guilty and I deserve a punishment.” When the judge announced that she would be kept in custody, she actually smiled and clapped.

And so, as of this writing, Tamara Samsonova is still in custody and the police investigation into her crimes continues. It’s no doubt difficult with some of the victims’ bodies still missing, including her husband’s.

I think it’s safe to conclude that the “Granny Ripper” will never be released from prison. She might just wind up executed like her hero, Andrei Chikatilo. I doubt there are many on this earth who would mourn her passing. Long may she rot in hell.

RIP, Valentina Ulanova and all of the other victims of this heartless killer.

    Wow. This is just beyond sickening.

    Just when I thought I had seen it all on this website…along comes Granny Ripper. The picture you posted of her when she was young, you were correct in saying that she used to be a looker. I wouldn’t doubt that she probably used her good looks to lure the male victims to their demise. I usually reject the idea that a person must have a mental problem or be under the influence of something, in order to do the heinous acts they commit. Mankind doesn’t want to believe that a normal, sane person could do these horrific things. It’s like, they HAVE to have something really wrong with them. They think the mentally ill and people on drugs are the only people capable of planning and committing heinous acts against their fellow man. I, on the other hand, believe there are people out there who are perfectly sane and have nothing mentally wrong with them. I believe there are people out there who do these awful things solely because they WANT to. They wanted to do it. They get off on it and enjoy it. Now this particular hellbeast, I have to admit that there is something seriously wrong with this woman. I may be way off base and she may have done it because she wanted to. I guess it’s easier for people to think there’s something wrong with a person in order for them to do horrible things. Whatever helps them sleep easier at night…

    • Nubio Yasser says:

      Sister Jeni C seriously???

      A normal person kills and eats others because they simply find it normal?
      A normal person dismembers and cooks the heads and internal organs of others because they find it normal?

      Sister you better get your understanding of “normal´´ right.

      Your concept of normal frightens me.

      • Jeni C says:

        I said that there is something seriously wrong with this woman. So, if I’m understanding you correctly, you’re saying that only messed up, mentally ill people commit horrific crimes. Right? I’m not saying they are normal, I am saying that there are people out there who are perfectly sane and have no mental illnesses whatsoever, who commit horrific crimes. There are people who do these things because they WANT to. By your reasoning, if only mentally ill, messed up people commit atrocities, then they all should be convicted by reason of insanity. Every person in prison now, that have committed heinous crimes, should not be in prisons, but hospitals. Every crime can be seen as awful. So that means every person that has committed an awful crime, they are mentally ill and not right in the head. I don’t believe that. Some people are just plain EVIL. Some convicts do have legitimate mental illnesses, but not all of them.

        • Nubio Yasser says:

          “I’m not saying they are normal, I am saying that there are people out there who are perfectly sane and have no mental illnesses whatsoever, who commit horrific crimes”

          You lost me there. If you acknowledge they’re not normal how can they be ”perfectly” sane? But just to wrap it up i’ll say this:

          Evil = Madness. Believe it!

          To me, evil reeks of madness all over.

          If you believe you have the right to bring suffering and cause the demise of your brethren, then you´re as mad as hell.

          But that´s just me, if you think otherwise, i respect your right to your opinion.

          And to answer your question, YES! I’m saying that only messed up, mentally ill people commit horrific crimes.

          • Jeni C says:

            So, everyone who commits terrible crimes are mentally ill? Ok, then. Let’s open up the doors to the prisons and let everyone out because they aren’t really criminals…they’re just “mentally ill.” I am sorry, but I think we use the term “mentally ill” too loosely anymore, to describe people who are just inherently evil, but have no mental illness. Just because you do bad things, it does NOT mean you are mentally ill. Some of the worst serial killers were very intelligent, with not a trace of mental illness. I found this online as I was researching serial killers and mental illness. Here is what I found:
            *To be classified as legally insane, an individual must be unable to comprehend that an action is against the law at the exact moment the action is undertaken. In other words, a serial killer must be unaware that murder is legally wrong while committing the act of murder in order to be legally insane.*
            Now, the people that are featured on this website, they do horrific things. Most of them are aware of their actions, and now what they have done is wrong and against the law. How do we know that? Most of them try to cover up the crime as to not get caught. And why do they cover it up? Because the know it is WRONG and against the law! So, you can’t tell me that every person out there who commits horrific crimes is mentally ill. I’ll agree with you that some are actually mentally ill, but not all of them. If that were true, then we wouldn’t have prisons, we would have hospitals for inmates. Just saying. I am sure my good friend Bengalpuss would agree with me!!

        • Bengalpuss says:

          Jeni, my good friend you are spot on hun, some people are quite sane, however some people are just down right evil cunts who commit heinous acts because they are down right “wicked evil narcissistic fuckers” This woman falls into that category.

          • Jeni C says:

            BP, I can always count on you to back me up…great minds think alike! The way you worded your comment to me, it sounds like you understand 110% what I am saying.

        • Meh says:

          You are right. They are called sociopaths

          • Pit says:

            I have been studying these personalities and you are right, there is no madness here. They are just another kind of people.

  3. MoodyMagic says:

    This is one sick individual. I can’t even imagine the horror for the poor victims went thru. What drives these people to such depravity .

  4. DecentPeopleOnly says:

    Andrei Chikatilo got the Death Penalty for his Evil Orgy of Murder

    Thanks to ” Council of Europe ” Russia has been Interferred with over
    the Usage of the Death Penalty For Murder

    I am Sure many Russians would Prefer True Justice the Death Penalty For
    Murder than the Degenerate State of the UK where Murderers Get Treated Better than the Homeless

  5. DecentPeopleOnly says:

    It is Sickening what has Happened ie the Murders

  6. DecentPeopleOnly says:

    Quite of a Horror Story the Vicious Murders

    Had it Happened in the UK The Murderer would probably of had more
    Concern for their ” Human Rights ” than the Murder Victims

    Cannibalism can only be Condemned NOT Condoned

  7. Bengalpuss says:

    Cleo, I know this story is horrendous but you had me laughing at the first few lines “she used to be a looker, I kid you not, she was a good looking woman” then this “way back when” bloody hell when the dinosaurs were still roaming the earth? Thank you cleo, made my night.

  8. Kandy Loretta says:

    I know female serial killers are a rarer than male but female cannibals? WTF?

    • Jeni C says:

      I thought the same thing, Kandy! Don’t hear about female cannibals, or female serial killers, that much! Nothing shocks me anymore in this world!

      • bulldoggy says:

        Jeni C, this story may not have shocked you but it sure shocked me. Death by dismemberment? Beyond horrifying. And just where did the missing bits of the missing people go? It sounds like she was distributing the body parts on foot so likely they didn’t get far. I wonder if she buried them.


    Eww, she looks like a nasty disgusting creature out of one of Grimms Fairy Tales.

    Give her a fary tale style punishment by bricking this monster up inside a deep old well with the bottom concreted to prevent any possibility escape through an underwater tunnel

  10. DecentPeopleOnly says:

    I Agree

    She is a disgusting ” Creature ”

    Thankfully She is Not Guarded by ” European Human Rights ” like She would be in the UK

    She is Out of a Horror Movie

  11. Methany says:

    Sick ass bitch she should be “punished” alright WACKED

  12. honfhonksd says:

    what do think made her like that?
