AN INSTAGRAM wannabe star allegedly cold-bloodedly tore out her own mum’s beating heart during a frenzied knife attack, say cops.
Medical student Anna Leikovic, 21, of Moldova, then washed the blood off in the shower and went to meet her boyfriend for a date, according to reports.
The woman is “suspected of committing a terrible crime,” reported Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper, citing police in Comrat.
Leikovic allegedly initially stabbed her mother Praskovya Leikovic, 40, at home.
Her mum – who didn’t die immediately – was then subjected to a gory, frenzied death.
It’s alleged that after stabbing her mother, and while Praskovya was still alive, “she then cut out her heart”.
The paper adds that she allegedly “decided to rip the heart out of the chest of a dying woman.
“It is hard to believe but she cut out the heart in the most literal sense of the word.”
Leikovic then gouged out her mum’s other internal organs including her lungs and intestines with a kitchen knife, it is alleged.
The medical student, who has 9,400 followers on Instagram, appeared in court after being detained the day following her mum’s horrific death.
Video footage showed her bizarrely lying down in the dock, cleaning her nails, before standing on a bench when the judge entered the court.
When a journalist called out and asked if she had slaughtered and mutilated her mum, Leikovic reportedly laughed and replied ‘goodbye’.
Police spokeswoman Lyubov Yanak said: “The detainee is the main suspect.”
She added that no one else was suspected of being involved in the brutal killing and mutilation, but “a thorough investigation is required to clarify the motive for the murder”.
According to media reports, Praskovya had returned home from her job in Germany.
It’s understood that she feared her daughter was on drugs.
So she arranged treatment to help Leikovic – who then allegedly became angry, and violent.
