A Russian history professor who is renowned for his depiction of Napoleon was arrested after he was pulled out of a river while intoxicated and in possession of a backpack of limbs that had been removed from a woman’s body.

63-year-old Oleg Sokolov is a professor of history at Saint Petersburg State University who is well-versed in French military history, as well as a top player in historical re-enactment activities. Sokolov has shown a strong attachment to the life of Napoleon Bonaparte by writing more than one book about the French general, in addition to dressing in period costume to depict his likeness at historical events.

For the past 5-years, Sokolov had been dating an ex-student, Anastasia Yeshchenko, who also shared his passion for French history. The couple reportedly lived together and collaborated on some of Sokolov’s writings about Napoleon.
