A cannibal serial killer who ate his victims' livers if facing life behind bars after he confessed to a string of murders while being interviewed by police as a robbery suspect.
Twisted Aleksandr Bychkov, 24 - from Penza in central Russia - has originally been detained over a hardware store hold-up.
But as police quizzed him he confessed to at least six grisly murders where he chopped his victims into small pieces and ate their livers before burying their remains near his home.
"We can confirm that cannibalism took place," one senior local police source told local media.
Penza police investigation chief Maria Orlova added: "At this point we have found six people buried, recovered their remains from the ground, and sent them for examination."
"The suspect has identified the photos of those who died and has said he is involved in other similar cases," she added.
Police believe that Bychkov may turn out to be responsible for more than a dozen cannibal killings.
Now red-faced prosecutors are now expected to release a man jailed last year after being found guilty of some of the killings now being confessed to by Bychkov.
Disabled Aleksandr Guplov had always protested his innocence of the crimes.
