Riga pedophile: how the police suspected Vladimir Vysotsky himself

The year 1966. A man with eyebrows as thick as shoe brushes and black curly hair falling uncontrollably on his forehead had just taken over the leadership of the Soviet state. Leonid Brezhnev, a heartthrob in his youth, will go down in history as a leader who passionately kisses the leaders of friendly countries and speaks incoherently in front of television cameras.

in 1966 begins tragically: the fishing vessel “Tukums” sinks in the North Sea. The rescue operation fails, 22 of the 24 fishermen die. In the spring, August Vos becomes the first secretary of the Communist Party of the Latvian SSR, replacing PelÅ¡, who was going to rename Riga after “Gagarin”. In that year, the great theater master Eduardas Smilgis and the writer loyal to the Soviets, Vilis Lacis, died. Still, the 1960s saw some good films – Edgar and Christina, I Remember Everything, Richard!, Captain Enrico’s Clock. In general, the film industry was booming throughout the USSR in the 1960s.

The songs of the actor and bard Vladimir Vysotskis are a balm for the soul of a Soviet man tired of ideology. The famous actor – the idol of millions of people – played a special role in this story.

11 years of Soviet occupation left a mark on people’s consciousness – there were people who seriously believed in the movement “towards communism”. But despite the crazy Soviet life, the 1960s was an era of space and progress. It seemed that the future described in fantasy novels was about to arrive. Western winds broke through the iron curtain – Latvians listen to “Voice of America”. The Deglava Bridge opens in Riga, which facilitates the connection of the residents of the newly built Purvciem district with the city center. Trendy voluminous hairstyles, colorful geometric designs and knee-length coats with big buttons. The hippie era was approaching – dreamy long-haired bearded men and skinny girls in mini dresses. In such circumstances, the brutal events of the summer of 1966 took place.

Riga is haunted by horror

There are rumors in Riga that some rascal is raping and torturing little girls on the outskirts of the city. Parents no longer let their children play in the yard until late at night. But it did not help, because the pedophile acted according to a well-thought-out plan. Also, in the 1960s, parents worked from morning to night, and school-aged children often walked alone.

Neither the newspapers wrote about the maniac, nor the local authorities or the police. Because there could not be pedophiles and serial killers in the Soviet country! Meanwhile, the number of child victims has increased. The children tortured by the pedophile could not tell the authorities much – the emotional and psychological shock was too great.

The girls remembered that they used to play in the green areas of Riga – near dense bushes or a small forest, and a nice man with thick hair would come up to them and offer in Russian to look at the hedgehog in the forest. After luring him into the forest, the pedophile would gag, beat, undress and rape the victim.
