Among today's revelations: Moskvin had detailed graveyard photos and maps in his apartment, and instructions for making the dolls. Shoes in Moskvin's apartment matched footprints in cemeteries. Examiners have not determined whether each mummy doll contains a "full set of remains," or whether Moskvin mixed and matched. And finally, as the BBC reports, Moskvin has long been obsessed with graveyards:
In a 2007 interview with the newspaper Nizhegorodsky Rabochy, Mr Moskvin said he had begun wandering through cemeteries when still a schoolboy.
He claimed to have inspected 752 cemeteries across the region from 2005 to 2007, often walking up to 30km (20 miles) a day.
He said he had drunk from puddles, spent nights in haystacks or at abandoned farms and had once even slept in a coffin readied for a funeral.
