|Name: Diana Semenuha
Born – 1976 / Died – ****
Number of victims: More than 30
In 2005, the Odessa Police department arrested a woman for conducting rituals over minors pumping out their blood.
Under the name of Mr. Krait, she placed advertisements in newspapers announcing seances of black magic for 600 dollars each.
She would invite homeless children to her place, give them vodka to drink and then pump out their blood so she can use in her rituals.
And I quote a newspaper article:
Diana Semenuha, 29, believed that drinking blood could fend off a muscle-wasting condition.
She kept the children intoxicated on drugs and alcohol and bled them regularly, selling the surplus to other black magic practitioners. When that weakened them, she dumped them back on the streets and lured replacements with the promise of a place to sleep and a hot meal.
Detectives found seven drugged children strapped to beds and benches, and a large, black knife and silver goblet engraved with satanic symbols.
Ukraine has an estimated 200,000 street children, whose widespread addiction to glue sniffing and alcohol made them easy prey for the woman dubbed the “vampire witch” by local media.
Semenuha, who when arrested gave her profession as “witch”, has admitted holding the children. “I let them sniff glue, but I paid for it and took a small amount of blood in return,” she said. “But there was no violence involved, I also fed them and gave them shelter.”
As far as I know no deaths were attributed to her but the fact that she drank the blood of her victims is enough to earn her a mention on the site.
