A family of alleged cannibals are confessing to murdering -- then eating -- more than 30 people in southern Russia.
The shocking confession comes after detectives found body parts in the freezer located in the couple’s home.
Russia Today has identified the pair as Dmitry Baksheev, 35, and Natalia Bakshaeva, 42, from Krasnodar.
Baksheev reportedly told cops he began his macabre machinations in 1999 and over the next 18 years there was little to quench his insatiable bloodlust.
The couple’s shocking reign of terror ended when they were detained after a mobile phone was turned over to police.
Photos on the phone revealed a sicko posing for selfies with human body parts -- including a decapitated human head. Another featured a human head on a plate garnished with oranges.
Investigators then traced the mobile to Baksheev.
The news outlet Mash said the pair were a “cannibal family” with various body parts found in their freezer, fridge and elsewhere for future consumption.
Cops also discovered a disc with the title “video lessons for cannibals” and pickled human remains in mason jars.
Since their arrest, Bakshaeva has undergone mental competency tests and her mind was judged to be sound. She has confessed to 30 counts of murder and cannibalism.
“She is an absolutely healthy adequate person who fully accounts for her actions,” said her diagnosis cited by Mash.
The intestine-loving twosome were not well liked at the military academy apartments where they lived.
A worker said: “Each time we tried to enter their room, they started wild shouting and crying. Natalia is a scandalous woman, aggressive, so we did not risk it.”
