According to Vyshenkov, the people who built this place deliberately tried to convince the prisoners that they are in a state prison and spent a lot of money on it, recreating the detention center in the smallest detail.
“If I or you were brought there for some magical reason with your eyes closed, then when we opened our eyes, we would think that we are not with the bandits, but in the state prison. All the little things, all the nuances are observed there. Believe me, I know what I am saying, I have been to different places, ”says Vyshenkov.
Moreover, in order for a person to fully believe, they should have been treated like in a state prison – there should not be torture, but there should be uniformed officers. The person must be fed and watered.
“But any person will start [в какой-то момент говорить]: excuse me, what kind of atrocities is this, where is the lawyer, where is the investigator, where is the judicial arrest? ” – Vyshenkov develops his thought. The legend of the kidnappers may be as follows.
“I would say this: dear sir, in addition to official laws, there are secret laws, there are secret services, you are outside the legal field, you will communicate with special service number 8. You can shout, yell, but no one will let you hang. You sit still – calm down. “
The motives of the kidnappers can be very different – from obtaining information, then transferring property. But the main question – what to do with the prisoner, arises when a person finally fulfills everything that was demanded of him. According to Vyshenkov, if we assume that the prisoners were released, then the law enforcement agencies should have received complaints and statements from them.
“I know for certain that there were no such statements and appeals to any law enforcement agencies with approximately such a legend. I think the person just disappeared, ”Vyshenkov says. Moreover, the journalists found a home-made crematorium made of several concrete rings on the territory of the site.
47news reporters have identified a number of owners of this land. The very first of them turned out to be a former employee of the Federal Penitentiary Service, Renat Alimzanov. Until 2004, he worked as the head of the operative section of the Investigative Detention Center No. 4 in St. Petersburg and retired with the rank of captain. Alimzanov went into business – he became the founder of a construction company and a security company. And in 2018, when he was 51, he died unexpectedly.
As it turned out, Vyshenkov knew him personally. “Renat was a super real person. It was formed in a super-real situation: here and now. Any dubious chimeras could not have crossed his mind, because he was very specific. And Renat knew very well what a law enforcement system was, and if he did something, it was so big and illegal, and someone would offer him, and let’s arrange a plot for you, and then we will do something, Renat took it would be like a stupid joke, ”says Vyshenkov.
On Tuesday, The Insider’s correspondent went to the Novy Petersburg cottage community and walked through the secret cells himself. In the basement of the house, he found three cells with bunk beds. Now the basement is flooded with water.
