Werewolf Killer: The True Story of a Russian Cop turned Serial Killer (From The Archives)

Werewolf Killer: The True Story of a Russian Cop turned Serial Killer (From The Archives)

My special guest is author C.L Swinney who's here to discuss one of the most prolific serial killers in Russian history.

Mikhail Popkov seemed to live the perfect life. Beautiful family, rewarding career, admiration and respect of the entire police force he worked with. Yet underneath, he had a deadly secret no one would ever believe...he moonlighted as a serial killer. His family and co-workers doubted his guilt in the beginning, but when he confessed to the crimes and led the police to his many dumping sites, they were horrified. In an effort to avoid Black Dolphin, Russia’s most feared prison, Popkov continued to list names and locations of more and more victims. When his kill count climbed above 81 souls, everyone wondered what could have caused this seemingly ordinary man to snap, carry out a never-before-seen reign of terror on the people of Russia, and turn into the worse serial killer in Russian history.
