Spurned lover turned to Satan, violence
Police said Lyudmila Osipova, 41, of Volgograd, developed a crush on a man in his 20s while teaching a computer class several years ago and attempted to reconnect with the man after quitting her job in 2009, RIA Novosti reported Friday.
The woman posed online as a model half her age in an attempt to reconnect with the man, but he spurned her advances because he had a girlfriend he planned to marry, the Komsomolskaya Pravda reported.
Investigators said Osipova's failure to win the man's affections led her to take up Satanism and drink blood in an attempt to get the devil to help her obtain a younger body, $32,000, a Jaguar, a Volkswagen, a helicopter and a team of bodyguards.
However, that also failed to yield results, so Osipova attempted to hire an undercover police officer posing as a contractor to attack the object of the man's affections.
"Put her on drugs for a couple of weeks in order to develop an addiction," the woman says in surveillance video of the incident. "Gang-rape her too, and film it for him to see."
Osipova was arrested Wednesday after allegedly handing over $6,500 to the undercover officer. She was charged with instigating kidnapping, gang rape and infliction of grave bodily harm.
She faces as much as 15 years in prison if convicted on all charges.
