A SEX beast has been jailed for raping and strangling a 13-year-old girl with jump leads before he “buried her alive” in the woods.
Alexander Lipatov, 36, from the Russian city of Kotovsk has now been sentenced to 24 years in prison for the crime.
Lipatov spotted the girl from his car at 10pm on 7th March 2020.
He then chased after the young teen, identified as Elizaveta Chernova, who was reportedly on her way home to her mum.
He caught Elizaveta and began to beat her brutally as he dragged her into his car and drove her to a nearby forest.
Lipatov proceeded to rape the girl and then strangled her using some jump leads he took from the boot of his car, according to the official investigation.
In an attempt to cover up his crime, he buried Elizaveta's body and destroyed her mobile phone.
Local news site Life reported that Lipatov initially refused to admit to what he had done.
He told the authorities that he hit the child with his car, claiming that he panicked and threw the girl's body into a river.
However, the authorities found that the man's vehicle showed no signs of having suffered a collision.
The authorities inspected the inside of the vehicle and forensics found it was covered in the girl's DNA.
The police proceeded to search the nearby forest and located the girl's body.
The girl's mother, named only as Tatiana in local reports, is quoted by Life has having claimed in a TV report aired by channel 360 TV that her daughter might have been buried alive.
Tatiana said; "When I saw a photo of Lisa's body in the case file, it immediately became clear to me that my daughter was buried alive. I thought so because of the position of her body. She was covering her face with her little hands."
However, the investigation concluded that Lisa was first severely beaten and then strangled to death before being buried.
The Prosecutor's Office of the Tambov Region announced that the court had reached a verdict against the accused, who has not been named, and found him guilty of murder and rape.
The court sentenced Lipatov to 24 years in prison in a high-security facility.
