Nikolai Dzhurmongaliev has claimed to have killed between seven to 100 women, and served many of them to his dinner guests. Nikolai used at least 47 of his victims to make ethnic dishes for his neighbors in the Russian republic of Kyrgyzstan. When arrested, Nikolai pointed out that two women could provide enough delicate meat to keep him going for a week.
Nikolai started his cannibal-killer career by bribing his way out of an insane asylum. He believed that women and prostitution were the root of all that was wrong in the world. According to Yuri Dubyagin, an officer of the Interior Ministry Colonel, Nikolai seemed "absolutely normal, but at one point got a taste for female meat." He describes Nikolai as having the brains of a "lone wolf" and being a very powerful man. "When we arrested him," said Dubyagin, "he hit me with the force of Jean Claude Van Damme."
