Since 1970‑ies in the neighboring cities of Rostov-on-don, Shakhty and Taganrog was sent to jail 37 serial killers, who killed hundreds of people. And how many others do not fall into the hands of the police, we can only guess. Due to the high density of serial killers, this region is called the "triangle of death". Analysts, criminologists and psychiatrists few decades looking for the solution of the phenomenon, but the answer was never found. Several versions: from an unfavorable environment in the region, to the mystical forces that drive the murderers.
In Shakhty their bloody work began Andrei Chikatilo, here wielding maniac and poet Vladimir Mukhankin, which for two months had killed eight people. In Taganrog acted Yuri Cuman, leaving the bodies of the victims are black nylon pantyhose. Since 1993, the city of Kamensk-"hunted" Roman Burtsev, who killed the children.

In cities of the Rostov region there were a rapist, Andrey Seleznev. The man under the guise of an electrician got into the apartment, where children without parents. Maniac raped the child and took everything of value from the home. What made all these maniacs to torture and kill people and why they acted in a small area of the Rostov region? On this issue criminologists and psychiatrists thought in the Soviet period.
A number of researchers believes that the reason that people are getting maniac – elevated levels of testosterone. However, all Rostov killers, the figure was normal. In addition to the history preserved a dozen names of female serial killers and their body this hormone is so important not important.

Closer to the truth of the assumption that the anomalous cruelty maniac caused smaller than ordinary people, the volume of gray matter in the frontal lobes of the brain. This part of the brain responsible for empathy – the ability of an individual to sympathy. Most of the detainees maniacs increased gray matter in the frontal part was on average 17% less than that of normal people.
The tendency towards cruelty characteristic of schizophrenic people that while bullying is not experiencing sexual pleasure and are not aware of their actions. Psychiatrists recognized Chikatilo, Suhankina, Burtseva, and the majority of serial killers in Rostov sane. They were not killed, obeying "the voice in the head", but almost every one of the killers grew up in difficult social conditions and in a dysfunctional family.
In childhood Rostov murderers were subjected to physical, emotional and sexual violence. In the 80‑ies of the twentieth century, the standard of living of Soviet citizens fell, an epidemic of alcoholism and the growth of criminal activity, and as a result, the deterioration of social conditions. However, this situation was typical for many regions, but for unknown reasons, in the Rostov region, was born and grew up maniacs.

Researchers of the phenomenon have noted that many of the Rostov killers grew up in the mining towns with environmentally unfavorable conditions. The high content of heavy metals and pesticides in water, coal heaps and mines have left their mark about his difficult childhood psyche of a future serial killer.
Rostov oblast is located in the southern part of Russia, which is characterized by a powerful summer storm. The investigation revealed that Chikatilo was out hunting the day after a stormy night. Maniac admitted that thunder and lightning flashes attracted and aroused him. Alternative researchers believe that maniacs generates energy tectonic faults.
Most of his murders of Andrei Chikatilo committed by day. During interrogation he claimed that he was not afraid to be noticed, because during the twelve-year-old "hunt" it kept evil spirits. They supposedly helped him killed 53 people, including 39 children. Maniac knew that he would not see. While psychiatric Commission recognized Chikatilo healthy.
Andrew Policeman, head of anomalous phenomena Rostov region, argues that under the city and the whole region is a network of mysterious tunnels and underground tunnels, the study of which is yet to come. Supporters of the mystical nature of the Rostov maniacs sure that murderers move forces that live under the ground.

It is worth mentioning the Grushevka river flowing through the top of the "triangle of death". A Rostov maniacs committed his first murder on its banks. In line with Grushevka bloody path began Andrei Chikatilo and Mr Mukhankin. The French philosopher rené guénon wrote that in places where blood has been shed, remain psychic remains negative which is able to give rise to new horrors.
