A ‘sex slave’ has escaped from a Russian dungeon where she was held captive for 14 years by a maniac who raped her more than a thousand times and dismembered and boiled a second victim.
The woman, named Ekaterina B, has been detained at the kidnapper’s home since she was 19 in 2009. She told police she was repeatedly raped, according to local reports. She is now 33 years old and her identity has not been revealed.
Vladimir Cheskidov, 51, is currently under armed guard in a psychiatric hospital and is facing a criminal investigation for murder, rape and kidnapping.
Another woman, in her 30s named Oksana, was detained with Ekaterina and was allegedly murdered and dismembered by Cheskidov in 2011, Russia’s Investigative Committee said. The boiled remains of her were found on the property.

The woman (in the photo), named as Ekaterina B, has been held in the kidnapper’s house since she was 19 years old in 2009. She was raped more than a thousand times. Her full identity remains unrevealed.
The man’s mother, Valentina, lived in the same wooden village house in Smolina, Chelyabinsk region, and was aware of the kidnapping of his victims, according to reports.
She was under questioning today and detectives took her to the house she shared with her son.
Ekaterina managed to run away after the man got drunk and his mother called an ambulance for him.
Incapacitated, he was for once unable to padlock his ‘dungeon’, and some reports say this was in a basement.
He escaped and found his sister Elena, with whom he had not been in contact for 14 years, and then called the police.
The kidnapped woman told her sister Elena that she was permanently threatened.
“He would walk everywhere with me holding a knife, he always had a knife in his hand,” she said.
They met when she was 19 and offered her a drink at a train station, she told her sister.
“Then he invited me home,” she said. And it all started there.

The body of another woman was found in the house, and local reports say she was cut up and boiled.
The man’s mother, Valentina, was under questioning today and was taken by detectives to the home (pictured) she shared with her son.
When Vladimir came out, he tied her up, pinned her to a beam, and reportedly taped her mouth shut.
He freed her up to do housework, and she was expected to clean, cook, and take care of her mother, as well as provide her with sex.
The room where the woman was located was equipped with several muzzles, according to local reports.
Laptops and discs with pornographic content were confiscated from the house. The police also seized sex toys used during the alleged torture sessions.
He forced her to drink vodka with him and “beat her severely”.
She had been from a ‘troubled family’ and although she had a sister, no other relatives were looking for her.
Ekaterina finally escaped by convincing the man’s mother that Cheskidov would kill them both.
This caused the mother to call an ambulance when the man got drunk.
A report by Press Khata said that “bones and a crushed skull with traces of rust” were the only remains of the other woman.

There are also investigations into the fate of his father and a previous wife, according to reports.
Apparently, his wife had died after falling out of a window, while the father slipped and fell, fatally.
Some reports suggested that the remains had been buried in the garden of the village house.
Komsomolskaya Pravda called the alleged kidnapper, rapist and murderer ‘subhuman’.
He “used to have friends, and then he became a recluse,” the media outlet quoted locals as saying.
His mother, Valentina, at one time worked at a local psychiatric hospital.
He subsequently sold glasses from his side of the divided house.
Ekaterina had been reported missing in 2009, but the police were unable to locate her or the other girl who was abducted.
Local reports say a sledgehammer is suspected to have been used to kill the other woman.
The Baza media outlet reported: ‘In 2009, she met at the Chelyabinsk railway station with 37-year-old (at the time) Vladimir (Cheskidov).

He then locked her in a separate room in his house. She put bars on the windows of the room and locked the room with a padlock.
‘According to preliminary data, all these 14 years Ekaterina lived in this room.
According to the woman, Vladimir regularly raped her under threats of murder.
A criminal case initially for kidnapping was opened against the man.
Reports say that the house was divided in two inside and that the mother lived separately from her son and his kidnapped wife.
The Investigative Committee of Russia said in a statement: “During the investigation of the criminal case, the involvement of the suspect (Vladimir Cheskidov) in the murder of a local resident in 2011 was established.
‘On this fact, the investigative authorities of the Russian Investigative Committee for the Chelyabinsk region initiated a criminal case under Part 1 of Article 105 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (murder).
‘After committing the murder, the suspect dismembered the woman’s body and buried the remains in the basement of the house.
‘The man is currently under the supervision of law enforcement officers at a medical facility.
“Investigators and forensic investigators from the Russian Investigative Committee are working on the scene.”
