A Russian doctor has confessed to murdering and dismembering a woman he dated when he discovered she had undergone sex change surgery.
Mikhail Tikhonov, 27, cooked some of the victim’s body parts in an oven and flushed the remains down the toilet, it was discovered.
The culprit had been on a night out with Nina Surgutskaya, 25, in Kursk, before going back to her flat. The pair were having sex when he realised that she was ‘transsexual’ and had undergone surgery.
Tikhonov immediately strangled her before dismembering the body to hide the crime, according to Daily Mail UK.
The 27-year-old was detained and questioned after the lady went missing and her mother called in police to investigate.
The police report into the incident said: “Nina invited him to her flat. They continued to drink alcohol and began to have sex. He noticed his partner had been previously a man.
“She tried to continue the sex but at that moment he grabbed her by neck and squeezed tight.
“He stopped only when she had no more signs of life.”
Tikhonov then ‘decided to get rid of the body’ and took the corpse to the bathroom where he ‘cut out her internal organs’ and chopped them into small pieces which he flushed down the toilet.
He then carved off the woman’s flesh which he ‘put into the oven’, roasting them ‘to evaporate excess liquid’.
He then put the head and limbs into a suitcase and took them to his flat, according to the crime report.
The 27-year-old, who was trained as a doctor, faces up to 20 years in jail if convicted of murder and mutilating the corpse.
