Russian Serial Killer: Alexander Pichushkin



Alexander Pichushkin has confessed to killing at least 62 people, with the goal of marking all 64 squares on the chessboard. He has been charged with 49 murders, most committed over the course of five years in a sprawling park on the edge of Moscow.
Pichushkin's lawyer, Pavel Ivannikov, said his client admitted all the charges.
Pichushkin himself refused to enter a plea, however, demanding that he be transferred, seeking what his lawyer called a "more comfortable" prison.
Pichushkin, 33, had requested a jury trial, which is relatively rare in Russia, and 12 jurors and six alternates were chosen Thursday. If convicted, Pichushkin faces life in prison.

Pichushkin's first victim was his school friend, whom he strangled and threw into a sewage pit in 1992 because he was "upset" by the friend's refusal to kill people together with him, said Moscow Chief Prosecutor Yuri Syomin.

He began his series of killings in Bittsa Park in southwestern Moscow, which terrorized the capital, in May 2001, Syomin said. Most of the victims were men, whom Pichushkin had lured to the park with the promise of a drink of vodka to mourn the death of his nonexistent "beloved" dog.

Alexander Pichushkin looks on from behind a glass security cage during the first day of his trial in Moscow.

Pichushkin killed 11 people in 2001, including six in one month, prosecutors said. He killed about 40 of his first victims by throwing them into a sewage pit, and in a few cases strangled or shot them in the head with "a self-made device."

From 2005, he beganPichushkin was arrested in June 2006 after police found his name and phone number on a piece of paper that a woman who was killed in the park had left for her son. He denied involvement at first, but then confessed to the murder after police confronted him with video from a subway surveillance camera that showed him accompanying the victim, according to the authorities. to kill with "particular cruelty," hitting his intoxicated victims multiple times in the head with a hammer, then sticking an unfinished bottle of vodka into their broken skulls, prosecutors said Friday. He also no longer tried to conceal the bodies, leaving them at the crime scene, they said.

"For me, a life without murder is like a life without food for you," Pichushkin bragged in his TV confession. "I felt like the father of all these people, since it was I who opened the door for them to another world."

Experts at the Serbsky Institute, Russia's main psychiatric clinic, have found Pichushkin sane.Russian media, including the government-run Rossisskaya Gazeta, have speculated that Pichushkin may have been motivated by a macabre competition with Russia's most notorious serial killer, Andrei Chikatilo, who was convicted in 1992 of killing 52 children and young women in 12 years.

A man accused of killing dozens of people and keeping count of them on a chessboard lured most of his victims by offering them vodka to mourn the death of a nonexistent dog, prosecutors said at his murder trial Friday.


Sports Most Spectacular Divorces



1. Greg and Laura Norman
This divorce ranks first for two reasons: The sheer size of the settlement and the fact that another celebrity (tennis legend Chris Evert) was cast in the role of home-wrecker.
As a golfer, personality, course designer and entrepreneur, Norman amassed a fortune of $300-500 million during his marriage — depending on which media estimate you believe. Various media reports estimated Laura's settlement at between $100 million and $200 million.


2. Michael and Juanita Jordan
Michael was just getting into big money when he married Juanita, then a bank officer, in 1989. He earned in the range of $350 million during the 17 years they were together, which put her in line for at least $150 million.
Juanita originally filed for divorce back in 2002, but withdrew the petition so they could attempt reconciliation. That failed and the couple divorced last year. The split came after Michael's former lover, Karla Knafel, sued him for failing to deliver $5 million as promised for not filing a paternity suit and going public about their affair. She claimed their affair began just three months after the Jordans married (ouch) and that the marriage was a "business arrangement" (ouch again) suggested by his agent.
With these allegations already in play, Juanita was able to stay on the high road to her settlement.

3. Michael and Jean Strahan
This was the perfect storm of sports divorces. Michael, an all-pro defensive end for the New York Giants, saw his split covered in exhaustive detail by the New York City tabloids.
Both sides hired powerful attorneys. Both sides went public with ugly allegations, feeding gossip mongers. After the end of the two-year struggle, Jean got the $15.3 million her prenuptial agreement called for. She also got $200,000 in child support and up to 90 percent of their kids' tuition covered.
Among the lowlights: Michael accused Jean of stealing money from him. Jean accused Michael of assaulting her before they were married and running off with mistresses (including one known as "Cupcake") after their marriage.


4. Jeff and Brooke Gordon
For the better part of eight years, they were the squeaky-clean couple NASCAR fans loved to hate. But then Brooke filed for divorce, citing marital misconduct. The ensuing struggle caused him much grief but earned him some street cred with the public.
He estimated his fortune at $48 million. Jeff argued that he deserved the lion's share of that, since he risked his life racing. Brooke, a former "Miss Winston," countered by claiming credit for his significant marketing success — and by arguing that his worth was actually much higher.



5. Joe DiMaggio and Marilyn Monroe
The brief union of these cultural icons captured the imagination of Americans long before the invention of the E! network. When they honeymooned in Japan, 100,000 American troops greeted them. This led to their famous exchange:
Monroe: "You never heard such cheering."
DiMaggio: "Yes, I have."
Alas, Marilyn loved the Hollywood lifestyle. Joe became consumed with jealousy. The marriage ended badly; Marilyn filed for divorce after just 274 days, citing emotional cruelty.
Joe remained protective of Marilyn, though, and tried to her guide her out of her subsequent emotional tailspin. After her death, he handled the funeral arrangement, barred Hollywood types from the ceremony and continued sending roses to her gravesite for 20 years.


6. Jason and Joumana Kidd
Talk about a bad ending ... Jason and Joumana held nothing back as their divorce proceedings got under way.
Jason, who made $18 million last year playing point guard in New Jersey, accused his estranged wife of "extreme cruelty" along with various forms of mental and physical abuse. "The defendant's extreme and unwarranted jealousy and rage has left the plaintiff concerned about her emotional stability," his petition read.
Here is a gem from one news account: "According to the complaint, Joumana Kidd used the couple's 8-year-old son on Dec. 27 to sneak into the Nets locker room and rummage through Jason Kidd's locker to find his cell phone. After looking up the names and numbers on it, the complaint said she left her son behind as she went upstairs to take a front-row seat, where she shouted insults at Kidd throughout the game."
Joumana countered by claiming that "numerous liaisons and perpetual physical and emotional abuse" led to the breakup of their 10-year marriage. Back in 2001, he pled guilty to spousal abuse after a domestic incident.
Eventually, the Kidds worked toward an amicable settlement. "It is unfortunate things didn't happen in a more gracious manner, but I have no grudges in any way," Joumana told the New York Post. "My goal is for my kids to always focus on the positives in their father."


7. Mike Tyson and Robin Givens
They lasted a bit longer than DiMaggio and Monroe, which was amazing. Iron Mike didn't leave his rage in the boxing ring; he reportedly bragged about slapping around Givens, at the time an up-and-coming actress.
"She flew backward, hitting every (bleeping) wall in the apartment," he said.
This attitude didn't help Tyson when the lawyers got busy in 1989. During a famous interview on "20/20," Robin blasted Mike while the champ sat by her side with glazed eyes. The marriage, she said, was "torture, pure hell, worse than anything I could imagine."
Media estimates of her settlement ranged from $3 million to $14 million, but Givens later denied getting big money out this brief marriage. She did pile on Tyson, though, with a tell-all book later in her life — detailing, among other things, an ugly assault that occurred during their marriage.


8. David Justice and Halle Berry
Justice was a slugger for the Braves. Berry was an emerging actress, years away from her breakout performances. Their marriage started well enough, but their cross-country relationship eventually strained.
David claimed Halle was overly jealous and prone to tantrums. Halle responded in kind, claiming she feared for her safety. Both made lots of money, so both sides demanded alimony.
Later, Berry claimed the divorce plunged her into depression and left her contemplating suicide.
"After David asked me for a divorce, things got very bad for me," she told Ebony. "I did not want my marriage to end. When David asked me to leave, I felt like my world was coming apart. I said, `What do you mean leave?' I was begging and pleading with him (to reconsider) because I always thought my marriage would be for life. I said, 'Can't we get some counseling?' But David didn't want to hear counseling. He wanted a divorce."



9. Chris Evert and Andy Mill
To free herself for Norman, Evert pulled the plug on her 18-year marriage to former skiing champion Andy Mill. She agreed to pay her ex-hubby $7 million in cash and securities while gaining custody of their three children.
This was still a tough deal for Mill, who previously considered Norman one of his good friends. "These two people have really meant a lot to me for a long time," he told People. "At this point I just wish them great happiness."



10. Shaquille And Shaunie
So far, the two sides haven't fired salvoes through the media. So to stir things, some reporters hearkened back to Kobe Bryant's sexual assault beef and Bryant's allegations of Shaq's extramarital activity.
"I've talked to Shaq a couple of times," Riley said. "I really wasn't aware that this was going to happen. But he will work it out; they will work it out, as most people do."
Given O'Neal's nine-digit net worth — and the fact the couple have had four children together — Shaunie should be headed toward a healthy settlement.

Celebrities find it easy to be green
Charlize Theron
"I like Endstar [makers of parkas, tents and sleeping bags]. The stuff is durable -- and made out of Return Textile fabric, which is partly created from recycled bottles."

Julia Roberts
When the Oscar winner takes her cup of joe on the road, she carries it in a reusable mug. To tote yours in style, use leak-proof wide-mouth 8.6 oz stainless steel thermal bottles.

Maggie Gyllenhaal
"Peter [Sarsgaard] has taught me a lot about passive solar energy. For example, if your house faces south, it gets all the sun and you can heat it much more efficiently."

Salma Hayek
The actress took a shine to a stunning tabletop bowl handcrafted by artisans in Nepal. Woven from discarded food wrappers, the bowl is a chic reworking of non-biodegradable waste.

Kim Raver
"My husband and I want the house we're building to be all green. To start, our energy will be solar."

Parker Posey
"I don't run the water too long when I wash my dishes. I also have a reusable bag from Trader Joe's that I use when shopping for groceries so I don't waste paper or plastic."
Follow Parker Posey's lead and grab a pretty reusable tote such as the 100% recyclable option by Tote Le Monde.

Courtney Love
"I have green power at home. I also use recycled toilet paper even though it's not the softest."

Laura Dern
"We painted every room in our house with Bioshield [solvent-free] paints, which smell amazing. And the whole family wears Green Toe shoes by Simple. They are made from recycled materials and are most comfy."

Sharon Lawrence
"I seriously consider a political candidate's environmental record before giving him or her my vote. You can get that info from the League of Conservation Voters at lcv.org."

Nicollette Sheridan
"All my cleaning products are eco-friendly. I especially like Mrs. Meyer's because they're biodegradable, cruelty-free and natural."

Alicia Silverstone
To save energy, the actress uses the laundry line she got as a birthday present to dry her clothes. "The sun does all the work, and it makes me feel like I live in Italy. I love it!"

Courteney Cox
The former Friends star enjoys Little Twig, the extra mild unscented bath line, which is sulfate- and paraben-free, and gentle enough for her daughter, Coco, 3. Return four of the recyclable containers and get a reward for keeping the planet clean: a 30 percent discount online.

Cheating Vengeance + Naija Entertainment News

I heard this story of a married couple. Married for seven years, two kids. The man had been cheating on his wife through out their married years...not with one woman at a time, but with several...she knew of his infidelities, sometimes he wasn't discreet...all their friends and family also knew about his extra marital affairs. So many times, this lady walked out of the marriage with her two kids...she couldn't deal with all the pain, and every time she left her matrimonial home, friends and family and even her husband begged her to return home.

For seven years, she watched her husband move from one woman to another, spend money and time with them and even had a few serious relationships in between...you know the kind of relationship where the guy travels and goes everywhere with the girlfriend instead of the wife?

Well some months back the husband did something that killed this woman's soul. She caught him getting a blow job from someone on the same street they live at...she caught them in their own home...in the living room.

After the girl left, the woman told her husband that she will make him feel just a little of the pain he had put her through for seven years...just a little taste of his own medicine.

That weekend, she packed a few things and left home. The husband thinking she needed some space or wanted to go stay with a friend, didn't ask where she was going.

She came back on Sunday night and said nothing to her husband. The following day, her husband came back from work and found his wife in bed with their neighbour, a single guy who lived in the flat above theirs...the woman knew when her husband usually came home and fixed the sexual escapade around that time. She wanted her husband to catch her in bed with another man.

The husband almost died when he walked into his bedroom, but the woman was not through with him, she told him that she had spent that weekend in a hotel and for each night she was there, she'd invited three of his friends. She had told them she needed to talk and when they came, she seduced and had sex with all three guys...her husbands friends...and it was no fabrication, she really did do it.

Naturally, the marriage ended...the man threw her things out of the house and she gladly went, happy that she did what she did.

When I heard this story and saw the woman, I almost supported what she did...but then I thought about it again...two wrongs can't make a right can it? She shouldn't have stooped to his level, but some people said she's justified and some men deserve to know what it feels like to be cheated on...but I'm thinking, what about the children? What do you say to them when they are grown? What she did was wrong, right? She should have just walked away instead of trying to pay her husband back in his own coin, right?

Someone told me that the most common reason women cheat is because their men cheat on them, so they try to balance the equation...hurt back the way they've been hurt

But is this necessary, to avenge cheating? Who has an opinion about this?

Why do people lie about their age? + Across The Naija Premier + Obasanjo in class

Most people don't like to tell their age, but when they do, they lie about it. I saw a CV yesterday, the date of birth on it was Feb 16th 1980, the ladies driver's licence read, Feb 16th 1978, and her international passport read Feb 16th 1976. We laughed about it but it wasn't funny. According to all this documents she's between 27 and 31 years old...funny huh? The funniest of it all is that she refused to tell me which of the DOB was her real one.

Sometime last week, during a casting, a model told me she was 23 years old, the following day, her older sister came for this same casting and told me she was 21 years old...how in the world can a girl be younger than her younger sister? lol!

In 2005, some guy told me he was 35, only for me to find out later through his brother, that was 43...8 years difference? Freaky right?

There are so many other examples I can give...some of you have experienced such I'm sure, or may you also are guilty? lol

What I don't understand is the need for people to lie about their age...I understand telling people you're a year or two younger than your real age, I understand if you're trying to get into the entertainment industry and you want people to think you are young blood...but in the real world, with real people, why all the fabrications? Why take out 5, 6 , 8 years from your age?

How many of you know your friend's or colleagues real age? Even your partner can lie to you about their age, imagine a wife or girlfriend not knowing her husband or boyfriend's real age,

My question is this: Why do people feel a need to lie about their age? Anyone has a reasonable explanantion? Also, who lies more about their age, the guys or the girls?


Here are pictures from the premier of Nollywood movie 'Across The Niger', which held on the 19th of August at the Planet One Event centre...

Obasanjo in Exam Class


I'm sure most of you know that our former president, Olusegun Obasanjo, is a student of The National Open University of Nigeria, where he's studying Christian Theology. He started classes in June of this year and had his first examination some weeks back...here's a pic of OBJ during the exam...




What the hell is he doing looking into his bag during an examination? Looking for expos? lol! I love this man, I don't care what anyone says, I love him...but seriously what is he doing?




Here's a joke to get you started on the right foot this morning.
GRANDMA IN COURT

Lawyers should never ask a Mississippi grandma a question... if they aren't prepared for the answer.

In a trial, a Southern small-town prosecuting attorney called his
first witness to the stand. She was a grand-motherly, elderly woman.He approached her and asked,

"Mrs. Jones, do you know me?"She responded, "Why, yes, I do know you, Mr. Williams. I've known you since you were a young boy, and frankly, you've been a big disappointment to me. You lie, you cheat on your wife, and you manipulate people and talk about them behind their backs. You think you're a big shot when you haven't the brains to realize you never will amount to anything more than a two-bit paper pusher. Yes, I know you."

The lawyer was stunned! Not knowing what else to do, he pointed across the room and asked,
Mrs. Jones, do you know the defense attorney?" Again she replied, "Why, yes, I do. I've known Mr. Bradley since he was a youngster, too. He's lazy, bigoted, and he has a drinking problem. He can't build a normal relationship with anyone and his law practice is one of the worst in the entire state. Not to mention he cheated on his wife with three different women. One of them was your wife. Yes, I know him." The defense attorney almost died.
The judge asked both counselors to approach the bench. In a very quiet voice, said, "If either of you idiots asks her if she knows me, I'll send you to the electric chair"

Ok...that's all for today...see y'all tomorrow! BTW, where the hell is Bellanaija? Girl you're driving your blog addicts like myself, crazy...Return soon! Take care everyone! Ciao!

“That’s two years in a row, man … give a black man a chance. I’m trying hard man, I have the … number one record, man.”
- Kanye West to the Associated Press on losing at the VMAs again


Perez Hilton's open letter to Britney
I read this on my favourite gossip blog, Perezhilton.com, and thought some of you might enjoy reading this. It's a letter to Britney for messing up big time at the VMA's that took place this past weekend. Hilarious...

Dear Britney,
Fuck you!

FUCK YOU!!!!!!!
We are insulted, offended and disgusted by your “performance” at the VMAs.

Are you fucking serious???


What you did was disrespectful to your few remaining fans. And it was disrespectful to MTV!

You didn’t even try!!!!!

You should have just cancelled, bitch.

Your performance was beyond pathetic. The old Britney Spears, who was at one point (a long time ago) truly great, would be embarrassed by your lack of professionalism and utterly shiteous appearance at the VMAs.

Where was Criss Angel? Where was the magic? And by ‘magic’ we don’t mean any tricks or illusions.

You seemed dead onstage. You have lost that spark and shine that used to ooze out of you!
We all know you lipsynch, but you couldn’t even do that well at the VMAs!

And you barely danced!

You couldn’t even get good hair extensions??????

You have no one to blame for your failure but YOU!

There was no way you were going to be good. You were out partying every night before the VMAs for three days in a row until almost sunrise! You were probably still drunk or high during your performance!!! You almost tripped a few times, you fucking mess!!!!!!!

No bullshit excuse that you or your camp will come up with can make up for how pathetic your performance was.

You heard Sarah Silverman was going to make fun of your kids and it upset you? Deal with it! Rise above it! Or don’t go on!

A true professional will DELIVER - no matter what!!!!

Let’s repeat that. It’s worth repeating.

A true professional will deliver - NO MATTER WHAT!!!!!!!!!!!!

What you did was inexcusable!

Your new manager, Jeff Kwatinez, should be ashamed of himself! You have tainted his reputation and everyone at his company, The Firm, should run and hide.

Your record label, Jive, must be thrilled.

You should apologize to everyone, Britney!!!!

You are pathetic!
FUCK YOU!
xoxo
Perez

P.S. Your beer belly looked hot!

We hope you are getting help, Britney. Seriously. Sincerely. You need help! We hope you have a good psychiatrist!

Y'all should see the comment...over 5, 000. I feel sorry for Britney. I hope she gets her life back on track and surprise the people who think it's over for her.
