The Vampire Killers
In the Ukraine in March, 2005 Diana Semenuha, 29, was arrested after police discovered that she had lured street children to her home to drink their blood. She admitted to the deed. Apparently, she believed that this practice could thwart a muscle-wasting condition she had, but her crime appears to have a different agenda as well. As reported in the Odessa press, which dubbed Semenuha "the vampire witch," she invited the children in with promises of food and a bed, gave them alcohol and had them sniff glue to make them pliable, and then bled them. Whatever she did not use herself, she sold to practitioners of black magic who participated with her in the Black Sea port's occult network. Once a blood source weakened, she moved the child back out to the streets and found a replacement.
One male child reported that he actually saw Semenuha drink his blood. She let him sniff glue and then used a syringe to draw blood from his hand. He said that as she muttered in a language he did not understand, she then squirted the blood into a silver bowl and consumed it.
The seven children who were rescued from her home disappeared into the streets again, making the case against the vampire witch difficult to prosecute.
