Then he raped and killed his sister. The killer hid the bodies of the children here at the dump, simply threw them in a pit and covered them with garbage. The bodies were found only after the arrest and confession of a confession. It is highly probable that if Burtsev had succeeded in hiding further, his first victims would not have been discovered.The next time Kamensk-Shakhtinsky began a search for the missing child in the summer of 1994. That July 17th maniac met Marina Alekseeva, who was looking for a kitten who had fled. Roman Burtsev offered the girl his help, after which he tricked her out of the city.
