Murderer Left Alone With Evidence Tries To Eat And Burn It

Murderer Left Alone With Evidence Tries To Eat And Burn It

Threatening letters that supposedly incriminated a man accused of murdering a woman almost ended up being destroyed when the accused grabbed them after being left alone, and tried to eat them.

And when Gore Evseyev, 32, realised that he was not going to be able to eat all of the paperwork before the police officer who was interviewing him returned, he then grabbed the man's lighter off the table as well, and tried to start a fire to burn them.

The incident which was captured on CCTV camera in the interview room shows Evseyev in a cage as he tries to set fire to the documents made soggy after he had been chewing them, and then battles with the police officer when he returns and tries to get back the evidence.

After most of the paperwork was taken from him, he had a little bit left that he also managed to set on fire again.

In the end, Evseyev gave up the struggle because of an attack of the hiccups caused by the part of the paperwork that he had already managed to swallow at the police station in the city of Kemerovo, in Siberia.

Police spokesman Miroslav Vasilyev said: "He was being interviewed when the investigating officer was called away, leaving the paperwork on the desk. The man was in a special cage and it was believed nothing could happen but the table in the small room was too near the cage, and he was able to reach the paperwork which he then tried to destroy.

"Fortunately it was possible to recover the evidence and the burnt and partially eaten letters are still usable and will be presented in the case against him. He also faces charges of attempting to destroy the evidence in a criminal case."
