Alexander Komin was a serial killer who tattooed slaves as punishment for failing to follow all his commands. He expected each of his captives to spend their waking hours sewing in his underground sweatshop. For two and a half years, Russian serial killer Alexander Komin beat and raped his captives. Komin also murdered every victim who failed to please him. Police found some of the bodies but believed that Komin's victims had died from drinking tainted moonshine. In other words, there were zero investigations into these deaths until one brave victim escaped.
By hiding his victims underground, Komin escaped notice and actually earned a good reputation in the local area. Komin also kept up the ruse for so long by abducting mostly homeless women who had a criminal record. This definitely made their disappearance a low priority for police, and it's possible Komin would still have his illegal operation going if he hadn't made a big mistake.
