Pensioner dubbed Granny Ripper ‘killed grandson’s wife and dismembered her body’

An evil pensioner who worked as a pathologist at one of Russia’s top clinics has allegedly admitted to brutally killing her grandson’s wife before chopping up the body and feeding it to dogs.

Dr Svetlana Shilyaeva has been dubbed the ‘Granny Ripper’ after the 66-year-old butchered Yuliya Pazylova, 29, with a knife as she took a shower.

She then hacked her body to pieces, throwing her head and pelvis into the reservoir of a dammed river, and distributing other body parts in the neighbourhood in Tula region, local media claims.

Shilyaeva reported Yuliya missing soon after killing her and disposing of her dismembered remains, it is alleged.

The pathologist confessed after failing a lie detector test some two months later, say reports.

Shilyaeva, who had worked at the Sklifosovsky Institute hospital in Moscow, told her interrogator: "How exactly did I kill her? Easily. I got a knife in the kitchen and went into the bathroom.

“She was taking a shower in the bath and I stabbed her twice – in the stomach and knee, and once… and that was it. She collapsed.”

In response to her startling admission, the detective demanded: “Once where?” to which the pathologist replied: “The last time? In the heart.”

Tragic Yuliya was the wife of Shilyaeva’s grandson Svyatoslav Pzaylov, 22, and they lived in the same house.

The day after the alleged murder she told her daughter – Svyatoslav’s mother – that Yuliya “will not bother anyone else”.

Later, cops found blood specs at the house despite the alleged killer “skilfully” disposing of the remains.

After undergoing the polygraph test, she confessed, according to law enforcement, saying: “I killed her, dismembered the body, and hid the parts.”

She has been detained in custody on suspicion of murder until February 15 by a court in Tula and could face up to 15 years behind bars if convicted.
