Sverdlovsk police searching for serial killer
Police have found several elderly women strangled in their homes in the region. They believe the killer is traveling through the region posing as a social worker before robbing and killing his victims, according RIA Novosti.
In Yekaterinburg, the suspected serial killer tried to erase traces of his or her actions by staging a fire, according to a spokesman for the police, RIA Novosti reports.
In 2010, Irina Gaidamak was convicted of the murders of 17 elderly women in the Sverdlovsk region. Gaidamak murdered the women in order to rob them. She received a 20 year prison sentence. Police did not comment on the similarities between the recent area murders and the crimes of Gaidamak.
