Russia’s serial killer who is a former policeman has confessed to a further two murders after being convicted
of killing 81 women.
Mikhail Popkov, 56, was branded ‘The Werewolf’ for his reign of terror which saw him rape many of his victims.
Now detectives believe he could have claimed the lives of ‘closer to 200’ people.
Russia’s serial killer, father-of-one is currently serving a life sentence at a hard-labor penal colony and
has been put to work making face masks during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Popkov also revealed how he wishes Russia still had the death penalty. It is the first time he is thought to
have expressed any regret for his horrific catalog of crimes.
‘I have a lot to regret. ‘For example, that none of this had happened, that I had not done (these things).
‘It is a natural desire of any person – to regret.
‘I have had a lot of time to think (about it).’ But when quizzed about how many women he had killed in total,
Popkov remained evasive. ‘I did not count the number of my victims,’ he replied.
