Life before the crimes[edit | edit source]
Akhmat Azimov was born in 1972 in the Uzbek SSR. His childhood was not much different from that of his peers. After graduating high school, Azimov joined the army. It was there that he first felt the taste of human blood. Once he participated in a fight between his colleagues and, bending the hand of his enemy, bit his teeth into the wound and began to drink blood. Shocked, his colleagues decided to avoid contact with Azimov.
Soon Azimov defected from the army, and was arrested and convicted shortly after. After that, he fled the colony, but was quickly rearrested. The second escape from prison in Bukhara in 1992 was successful. Later he explained his escapes from the army and prison were to taste human blood again.
Crimes[edit | edit source]
After his escape, he settled down to work in the household in one family, but soon withdrew from there, taking the with him the 4-year old child with him. For a long time Azimov drove him around Uzbekistan, drank his blood, tortured and beat him. When the boy's body was exsanguinated, Azimov killed him and threw his body into a waterfall.
The maniac did not like to stay in one place, leading a nomadic way of life. Soon he killed a 7-year-old boy from a family who sheltered him for the night.
The next victim was Azimov's nephew, but the boy managed to escape. The Uzbek authorities did not believe him, and Azimov continued on with his crimes.
Azimov then drowned a 3-year-old boy in a ditch, because the child had defecated his pants on the bus.
Arrest, investigation and trial[edit | edit source]
Azimov's crime spree ended when he decided to spend a night with a friend drinking alcohol. The drunk Azimov confessed to everything, prompting his friend to contact the police. He was arrested, and soon confessed to 4 murders. On investigative expeditions, he personally pulled the corpses of the victims from wells and aryks in a calm manner, despite knowing that the death penalty awaited him. Only once he tried to commit suicide when he was placed in a common cell, where he was forced to perform sexual acts on men.
In 1994, the court sentenced Akhmat Azimov to death, and the sentence was soon carried out.
