Sergey Golovkin (Russian: Серге́й Александрович Головкин) (November 26, 1959, in Moscow, Soviet Union – August 2, 1996) was a Soviet and Russian serial killer known as "The Fisher" or "The Udav" (The "Boa") who killed and tortured 11 boys in the Moscow area between 1986 and 1992.[1]

Sergey Golovkin was born in Moscow. His father was an alcoholic and his mother was an ordinary modest woman.[citation needed] His parents divorced in 1988.

Golovkin had a torture room in his garage where he tortured children (sometimes more than one at a time) for hours.[citation needed] He raped, burned, removed the skin, cut, killed and dismembered his victims.[citation needed]

Golovkin was sentenced to death and executed by firing squad. He was the last person to be executed by Russia before the abolition of capital punishment.[2]
