Alexander ‘Sasha’ Spesivtsev lured women and children into his Soviet-style apartment. He tortured, raped and murdered them. When his mother found the corpses, she took it upon herself to dismember them and dispose of them piece by piece in the Aba River. Smaller pieces were made into soups and stews that mother and son enjoyed together. Their dog always had a human bone, cut from the latest victim to chew on. Although Spesivtsev was charged with the murder of 19 people, evidence suggests that he was responsible for the deaths of more than 80 victims.  For pictures and more information, join us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/evidencelockerpodcast/) Want to become a Patron of the podcast?

When a former British diplomat’s daughter was found brutally murdered near the Fox Tower in Peking with her heart ripped out of her chest, both Chinese and British investigators were appointed to solve the case. Theories led the investigation to a nudist group, an ex-boyfriend, as well as a Japanese soldiers seeking revenge after an international incident. But nothing could ever be proven. To this day, the murder of Pamela Werner remains a mystery.    Promo: Detective Trapp (Wondery.fm/evidencelockerDT) Anaheim investigator Julissa Trapp is not like other detectives.
