An architect who left the profession to take up black magic was found dead with her one-year-daughter after a “ritual killing”.
Elizaveta Tsarevskaya was found naked with her dead child and a dead cat in the Russian city Rostov-on-Don.
Next to the bodies were pictures of her the architect’s ex-lover.
“After opening the apartment, even hardened law enforcement officers were shocked,” said a police source.
“Bloody things, objects of magic rituals were scattered everywhere.
“The woman’s body was on her dead daughter.
“For some reason, the mother was naked. In addition, another victim was found – a cat.”
All had stab wounds, believed to have been inflicted by the 32-year-old woman, called a “witch” by local media.
Her husband Artur Rusin, 26, said she had graduated with honours as a top architecture student, and was also a talented clothes designer.
But she became obsessed with the occult and trying to communicate with the dead.
When he went away to work, she became pregnant by a lover named Anton, who was also into black magic.
She gave birth to her lover’s child who her husband initially raised as his own, according to reports.
Her flat doors were locked from the inside and it is believed she killed her daughter and the cat before taking her own life in a “ritual killing”, say law enforcement.
Her lover has not been found.
