Man gets life for felonies committed against children in Perm Territory and Orenburg

A court has recognized the evidence gathered by the Perm Territory Office of the Investigative Committee as sufficient to convict a 30-year-old man from the town of Krasnokamsk. He was found guilty of 7 counts of felonies committed against three girls and three boys.

The court and investigators found that, in spring of 2011, the young man had committed felonies against two boys under 14 years of age, who were walking in a forest in the suburbs of Krasnokamsk. In October, 2013, in the same town he attacked a first-grader, took him to a deserted place and assaulted him. To cover up the crime, he killed the 7-year-old and buried the body at the yard of a summer house. The whole police force of Krasnokamsk, officers of the Perm Territory Police Department and Emergency Ministry’s Directorate, investigators and criminalists of the regional investigative authority and volunteers looked for the missing boy for a long time.

More than three years later, the man moved to Orenburg and got a job at a distribution center of a large retail network. In January 2017, the man took a drug and alcohol and tried to kidnap two small girls from a yard, but the 9 and 11-year-olds fought back. They screamed loudly, attracting attention of adults and the accused could not finish what he started. The same day, he assaulted a 12-year-old girl, shoved her into the trunk of his car, took to the outskirts of the town and sexually abused. While in the trunk, the girl had phoned her mother, who called the police at once. Along with law-enforcers, volunteers were also involved in the search and investigation. The same evening volunteers found the car with the girl and the assailant inside. A police squad delivered the girl to hospital, while the man was detained. The management of the Investigative Committee charged the Perm Territory Office with investigating all the crimes committed by the man.

The investigators did a lot of work to solve the crimes, including during the search operation in Krasnokamsk. They questioned hundreds of people, ran dozens of forensic examinations, carried out hundreds of investigations of scenes and other investigative operations. The case contains 42 files.

The court has sentenced the man to life imprisonment in a super maximum security facility.
