In a rented apartment on Bazhova Street in Yekaterinburg, a mother killed three children: a 5-month-old daughter, two sons aged 10 and 15. According to her, she did it because the devil possessed the children. The press service of the SUSK of the Russian Federation in the Sverdlovsk region reported on the initiation of a criminal case.

"A criminal case has been opened on the grounds of a crime under Part 2 of Article 105 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation ("Murder of two or more minors")", - the press service of the department reported (quoted by TASS).The identity of the dead children and their mother has been established.

A survey of family acquaintances, neighbors and the owner of the apartment is being conducted.The reasons for living in a family in a rented apartment are being established.

Investigators are finding out whether the family is registered, as told by the press secretary of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Sverdlovsk region Valery Gorelykh. The regional prosecutor Boris Krylov went to the scene of the tragedy. The investigation of the criminal case has been taken over by the Prosecutor's Office. Igor Morokov, the Commissioner for Children's Rights in the Sverdlovsk Region, joined in clarifying the circumstances of the incident."Tomorrow morning, together with the commission on juvenile affairs, with everyone who was somehow in contact with this family, we will clarify whether there were any markers that said that this could happen.

In the letter, she accuses her husband of being "possessed by Satan", her sons were struck by "a demon, fornication and pride", and her 5-month-old daughter was "bitten by a Serpent tempter". After the murder of the children, the Yekaterinburg woman notified all relatives about the beginning of the Apocalypse, assuring that her children were already in paradise. According to the source, her relatives do not rule out that the clouding of reason was caused by the harsh nature of her husband, who, according to them, was always angry when she communicated with loved ones. According to the local newspaper "E1.RU", referring to the words of one of the subscribers, law enforcement officers first took a woman out of the apartment in handcuffs, after which they also took out a man.
