Irina Gaidamachuk, a 41-year-old mother of two who lived in the isolated Urals village of Krasnovfimsk, had a voracious appetite for vodka. However, her husband Yuri refused to give her money to purchase the drink. As a result, Irina chose to earn it herself.

Irina was born on 22 May 1972 in the town of Nyagan, Khanty–Mansi Autonomous Okrug, USSR. At a young age, she developed an addiction to alcohol, and her parents were subsequently deprived of parental responsibility.

Irina came to Krasnoufimsk in 1990 when she was 18 years old, where she met her future husband, Yuri, with whom…

On the issue of Zhu’s purpose, the courts found that Zhu had several affairs following his marriage to Yang in 2015. Two months prior to the killing in August 2016, Zhu told his mistress that he and Yang had separated and were no longer together.

In the same month, he purchased some “true crime” books and had them delivered…

On April 9, 1996, Huugjilt discovered the body of a woman called Yang in a factory’s public bathroom. The woman had been raped and strangled, and the official tunnel vision common of wrongful convictions immediately focused on Huugjilt. With conviction quotas to meet, authorities pushed Huugjilt into confessing and bringing the case to a premature close.

It took only 61 days from the time the case was reported to the time Huugjilt was executed. …

The Osaka child abandonment case involved two abandoned children in Osaka, Japan.

Fukiage was convicted in three of the six incidents in which he was charged, although the exact number of victims is unknown.

The body was matched with a right arm and shoulder by Police Surgeon Thomas Bond, previously discovered on 11 September near Pimlico on the muddy bank of the Thames river. The Times newspaper had initially speculated that the arm had been submerged in water as a prank by a group of medical students. …
