Natalia Baksheeva and Dmitry Baksheev, the Russian “cannibal” husband and wife, who allegedly killed 30 people have confessed the motive behind their one of the gruesome murders.
According to the New York Post, pickled body parts of their last murder victim Elena Vashrusheva, 35, were found in a glass jar inside the couple’s fridge. The couple allegedly confessed to killing Vashrusheva, a waitress, in a fit of jealousy. The murder allegedly happened after Baksheeva accused her of trying to seduce her husband.
Baksheeva, 42, has also complained that she has been mocked by fellow inmates. She claims inmates have asked her things, like, “Did you eat enough human meat?” Baksheev, 35, is being kept in solitary confinement so that he won’t be beaten by prisoners. He is reportedly unhappy about the forced separation of him and his wife.
Viktor Belikov, a human rights activist has stated, “It is obvious that he

An Iowa couple will receive $3.25 million after winning a malpractice lawsuit against the lawyer who represented them in an adoption case in which the baby boy they were adopting was reclaimed by his biological parents and then murdered by his birth father, People magazine reports.
Rachel and Heidi McFarland were awarded the judgement on Tuesday against their former attorney Jason Rieper, whom they blamed for not getting the biological parents of the boy to sever their parental rights.
“The release-of-custody never got signed by either birth parent,” Rachel McFarland said to People. “Obviously our child and us weren’t a priority to [Rieper]. We are just happy he was found negligent. That was what our goal was. We will not see any money from this.”
The McFarlands had planned to have a private adoption in December 2013 from the daughter of one of Rachel’s co-workers. They were present at the birth and

Police are investigating whether a fire that erupted at a Michigan home was the result of a hate crime, according to Towleroad.
The house was owned by Nikki Joly and Chris Moore, the former of whom is the director of the Jackson Pride Center. The pair lost their pets in the blaze.
Pride Source says that firefighters are “suspicious” of how quickly the fire grew. There is “still a lot of work left to do,” says Elmer Hitt, the director of police and fire service in the city of Jackson. FBI Public Relations Officer Timothy Wiley added that the Ann Arbor Resident Agency of the Detroit Field Office of the FBI is providing assistance to the Jackson Police Department in attempting to confirm whether this was, in fact, a hate-violence incident.
Hitt added that an “accelerant” had been used to grow the fire and that detection dogs were employed following reports about the

Families flock to the Wisconsin State Fair each summer to indulge their sweet tooth, see local crafts, enjoy a ride on the Wonderfair Wheel and take in performances by leading artists. This year’s fair features appearances by John Mellencamp, The Beach Boys and Pentatonix. Unfortunately, it also featured a couple having sex on a bench in between the concession stands and the public restrooms.
Even more unfortunately, someone filmed it on their phone.
“We’re here for a horse show or a dog show – not to make babies,” fairgoer Morgan Hakenson told Wisconsin’s FOX6.
The Smoking Gun later identified the couple as Desiree Anderson and Robert Beasley, both 28 years old and “previously married to each other.”
Witnesses say the couple started going at it in full view of other visitors and appeared to know they were being filmed. At one point during the video, Beasley pauses to

A Pennsylvania couple who gave their six young daughters up to become sex slaves to a self-proclaimed prophet were sentenced to seven years in prison on child endangerment charges on Wednesday, The Washington Post reports.
The couple, Daniel and Savilla Stoltzfus, gave their daughters to Lee Kaplan in exchange for financial help for their farm, which they were worried they might lose, according to Bucks County Judge Jeffrey L. Finley.
Daniel had pleaded no contest, and Savilla pleaded guilty to the charges.
“You exchanged a certain level of comfort for the intellectual, emotional and sexual well-being of your children,” Finley said during the sentencing. “You watched day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year as Mr. Kaplan took your daughters by the hand, led them into his bedroom, locked the door behind.”
The horrifying saga began in 2012 when the couple, worried about their finances, asked Kaplan for help.

Hip-hop may have a new power couple. Nicki Minaj cuddled up with legendary rapper Nas and posted a cozy photo on Instagram. The Internet is going crazy about the potential of this romance.
Only KINGS recognize QUEENS. @sweetchicklife has the best food 👅 congrats @nas 😜
A post shared by Nicki Minaj (@nickiminaj) on May 9, 2017 at 10:53pm PDT
“Only KINGS recognize QUEENS,” she captioned. From her caption, it appears the two were at Sweet Chick—a restaurant that Nas is a partner in—in New York City. It’s unclear whether this was a dinner between friends and colleagues (both rappers are originally from Queens) or something more.
Many fans were excited that Nicki is moving on from her ex Meek Mill. Others guessed that the photo may be nothing more than a teaser for a future music collaboration.
