Born in 1936 in the Ukrainian SSR, the married man with two children raped and slaughtered his victims in a horrific attempt to fulfill his sick sexual fantasies.

After committing his first murder in 1978, a nine-year-old girl whom he raped, stabbed and strangled to death, Chikatilo’s murders became increasingly violent.

After the “thrill” of killing his first victim, the “crazy” killer mutilated his second victim by ripping off his teeth and eating her nipple and gouging out the eyes of another.

He would carry around his own “serial killer kit” hidden in a briefcase, carving out his victim’s genitals, sometimes the nose and tongue, and eating them.

Chikatilo imposed himself on his innocent victims, combining violence with sexual gratification and eventually attempting to have sex with corpses.

In a chilling confession, the serial killer revealed how he became sexually aroused after stabbing his schoolgirl victim.

He escaped justice several times, was arrested and released due to a lack of DNA evidence and a false alibi provided by his wife, Feodosia Odnacheva.

His horrifying crimes finally came to light in November 1990 when he was spotted by plainclothes officers trying to speak to boys on the street.

Officers made a startling discovery when they opened his briefcase — a knife, a piece of rope and a can of petroleum jelly.

CANNIBAL MURDERERS

Andrei Chikatilo was born in 1936 in the village of Yablunchne in Ukraine, then part of the Soviet Union.

Born to poor parents during a devastating famine, the starving family had to eat grass and leaves to survive.

Andrei was also told by his mother that before he was born his older brother had been kidnapped and “eaten” by starving neighbors.

Although it has never been determined if this is true, this would be Chikatilo’s first introduction to the idea of ​​cannibalism.

He grew up constantly hungry while witnessing the horrors of war as Nazi Germany invaded Ukraine during World War II.

It is believed that he was present when his own mother was raped by German troops.

Chikatilo would also feel his father’s public shame after being branded a traitor for being captured by Nazi troops when he was injured fighting for the Russian army.

Back then, those held as prisoners of war were shunned when they returned home because they “allowed themselves to be imprisoned.”

The evil killer grew into a fervent communist before discovering that he suffered from impotence in his early teens.

During his school days, he had difficulty talking to girls and blamed his father’s tainted wartime record for his failure to get into Moscow State University.

When he entered military service in 1960, he is said to have foisted himself on a young girl who tried to fight him off, and the first thing she realized was that he was aroused by the violence.

After a failed relationship due to his impotence, he married Feodosia Odnacheva after they were introduced by his sister.

In a 1993 interview, the killer revealed: “Girls went behind my back and whispered that I was impotent.

“I was so ashamed. I tried to hang myself. My mother and some young neighbors pulled me out of the noose.

“Well, I thought no one would want a man so disgraced. So I had to run away from there, away from my homeland.”

Although the couple struggled with intimacy, Mrs. Feodosia gave birth to a baby daughter and four years later a son who would follow in his father’s footsteps and lead a life of crime.

He later became a teacher, taunted and taunted by students when he could not maintain control of his rowdy class and was forced to resign after sexually assaulting female and male students.

TASTE OF BLOOD

All this led the killer to get close to his first victim, nine-year-old schoolgirl Lena Zakontnova.

He lured the girl into an old house he recently bought and tried to rape her.

When she fought back, he choked her before ejaculating as he stabbed her three times in the stomach – her body was later dumped in a nearby river.

Chikatilo was arrested but later released when his wife provided an alibi to cover his crime – despite all the evidence linking him to the crime.

Worker Aleksandr Kravchenko was found guilty of the shocking murder and sentenced to death in 1983.

The evil killer was able to resume his deadly crime spree after describing the “thrills” of his first murder.

In 1981, Chikatilo murdered his second victim, Larisa Tkachenko, and the following year he butchered 13-year-old Lyuba Biryuk.

He mutilated Larisa’s body with his teeth and bit off a nipple after beating her to death.

Lyuba was stabbed 22 times before her eyes were gouged out, and 10-year-old Olga Stalmatsjenok was disemboweled by her killer.

Chikatilo’s murders became more frequent and increasingly violent.

He targeted vulnerable or homeless young women and children, haunting bus and train stations, often luring them into nearby woods.

By 1983, the cannibal had killed at least 20 people and managed to escape justice when police were unable to link him to the crime scene with DNA evidence — despite his name being on file.

He was arrested in 1984 and placed under house arrest in September of that year after killing at least 30 people.

Moscow’s best detectives were assembled to identify the “sex-crazed” killer, and police officers began patrolling trains and bus stations.

In September 1984, he was arrested when two undercover officers arrested the father-of-two while he was talking to a young woman at a bus stop in his hometown of Rostov.

Police learned of his twisted sexual preferences for children and were shocked by the chilling contents of his briefcase – a knife, rope and petroleum jelly.

But police couldn’t link him to murders after a DNA error, and he only served three months for minor offenses.

He went on to kill another 20 people – although the true number of his victims is unknown, it is believed there were eventually at least 56 victims.

Often the bodies were found with the genitals removed, which he is said to have eaten after being mutilated by the sick maniac.

He was eventually lured into a trap in 1990 when he was again caught by undercover officers approaching boys on the street with his “serial killer” briefcase.

He was arrested on November 20 and remained silent for just over a week before confessing to the horrific murders.

The killer broke down in tears and initially admitted to 36 murders in which he climbed onto the corpse to achieve orgasm – later confessing to a further 20 murders.

The ailing Chikatilo stood trial in April 1992 and was charged with 53 counts of murder and five counts of sexual assault against a minor – the first major media event since the fall of the Soviet Union.

He appeared in an iron cage and was found guilty of 52 counts of murder and sentenced to death.

In 1994 he was executed by firing squad, which put a single bullet behind his right ear.
