Nikolai Dzhumagaliev is a Kazakhstani serial killer charged for the murder of seven women in 1981. It is speculated, however, that his actual victim count is much higher — likely falling somewhere between 50 and 100. Dzhumagaliev is perhaps more famously known by the name “Metal Fang”, given to him because of his unusual false teeth forged from white metal.
A cannibalistic killer, Metal Fang put his super-powered teeth to work. Otherwise normal looking and seemingly unassuming, he would charm his victims and ultimately lure them to his home. Once there he’d get them drunk and then murder and dismember them for cooking. Generally he would drink their blood as well, believing that human blood purified the soul, but occasionally he refused to because they were too inebriated and he found this off-putting.
This bizarre misappropriation of morality was prevalent throughout his crimes. Dzhumagaliev killed women exclusively, preferring white, blonde European types. He considered them the root of all evil and was deeply disgusted by women who drank or swore or had premarital sex. He made it his mission to eradicate them in an effort to purify the world.
Typically, Dzhumagaliev liked to prepare proper meals from his victims. One of his favorite hobbies was serving bits and pieces of them to blissfully unaware friends and house guests. Once he even made human meat ravioli. His secret recipes were ultimately his downfall, though: one of his dinner parties went horribly awry when someone discovered a severed head in the refrigerator. The guest alerted the police and Metal Fang was arrested shortly thereafter.
Found not guilty by reason of insanity, he was sent to a mental institution instead of being jailed. After a short stay there he managed to escape while being transported between facilities, living as a fugitive for ten years before being re-apprehended in 1991. Whether he murdered during his decade on the lam has never been confirmed, but it’s worth noting that his recapturing came after a young woman went to the police about his persistent propositions.
Nikolai Dzhumagaliev is still alive but his current whereabouts are marred by misinformation. Some sources say he was freed after ten years in the institution; others say he’s still held there now.
