Student Takes Selfie With Corpse Of Teacher He Murdered Before Sawing Own Head

Published on November 1, 2021

On Wednesday, November 1, 2017, Andrey Emelyannikov, an 18-year-old Russian student, murdered his teacher, took selfies, and then killed himself.

In the months leading up to his murder, Sergei Danilov had been having trouble with one of his students.

Sergei Danilov was in the process of expelling his student Andrey Emelyannikov.

Sergei Danilov, a 44-year-old father of 3, was in the process of expelling his student Andrey Emelyannikov.


Danilov was a health and safety teacher at the Western Complex of Continuous Education on Gvardeiskaya Street in Moscow. The 44-year-old teacher was a former Army officer and a father to 3 children.

Andrey Emelyannikov was not only failing out of his classes, but Sergei Danilov was in the process of permanently expelling the troubled teenager.

Andrey's first selfie was taken before the murder of his teacher. He posted them all to his VK account.

Sergei could have never suspected that he would die this Wednesday morning in such a brutal way. In one forum that Andrey frequented, one user commented that:

“’A couple of months ago he complained about his health and safety teacher, even saying that he would kill him sooner or later. But it is a common thing on our forum.” ‘Our guys often throw out threats to kill somebody, so we don’t pay any attention.’

Selfies With The Dead

Nobody will ever really know what was done or said before the murder between Andrey and his teacher, but it is easy to see how things ended.

With the two men alone in the classroom, Andrey used a sharp kitchen knife to slice open Sergei’s, creating a river of blood which flowed from the dying man’s neck.

The first-time murderer then uses his cellphone to snap a photo of his kill, which he then posted to his Vkontakte social media account. Sergei Danilov continued to bleed out, taking his final breaths as Andrey smiles for a selfie in front of him.

Violent Video Games

When asked about her son’s motivation, Andrey’s mother told reporters, “Andrey spent most of his time by computer screen. He was a big fan of computer games’, said his mother. Andrey was, in fact, an avid online gamer. In one game, a player named ‘Margarita’ said that “We made friends online. He seemed to be a completely ordinary guy, with a good sense of humour.”

Could violent video games really have caused this horrific murder? Haven’t we heard all that before?

Andrey was also in the process of translating a violent comic book series called ‘Blood Stain’ into Russian from English.

Mikhail Vinogradov, a psychologist and criminologist said:  ‘Computer games with shooting form and develop aggression, and people who are playing such games may bring into live the scenarios of these games.’

Andrey Emelyannikov played many violent games, and in fact he was obsessed with one fictional character named Walter Sullivan.

Walter Sullivan is the chief antagonist of the video game Silent Hill 4: The Room. Sullivan’s mission was to murder 21 people in order to appease a god to visit the cult he was in…. (or something like that.) Andrey’s Facebook profile photo was of Walter Sullivan.

How Long Was Andrey Emelyannikov Planning This Murder?

The Last Task Moscow Police believe that by killing his teacher Andrey was fulfilling one of the last requirements of a social media challenge known as the Blue Whale Challenge. The challenge appeals to depressed teenagers who plan on committing suicide, but must first complete.

50 task of their choosing. Nobody knows for certain, but if Andrey was a part of the challenge, that would mean that killing his teacher was task #49.

Task #50 was killing himself and the method he chose was disturbing. Using the same circular saw from his first selfie photo, Andrey Emelyannikov nearly severed off his on head.

  1. Surprising no one , I am permently barred from Facebook, due to comments they consistently found objectable. You mentioned " our kids" will not use Facebook, were you making a announcement? Your mid 30's ,Jon time to start knocking out babies!

    1. No babies for me. 3 dogs though. The world can't handle another Jon Perry, shit I can barely handle me.

      I bet you've got a bunch of kids. Did you ever contact Angela Simpson girl that did that crazy prison interview??

      Y'all would make some cute, psychopathic offspring.

  2. The person that other one was talking about was Joel guy jr. he killed his parents for cutting off his allowance. I attached an article for y’all

    Ps Jon is my favorite.

    1. Who knows, I couldn't find any motive other than the Blue Whale Challenge. It must have been a horrible way to die though. The sound of the saw inching closer and closer to the neck, ugh, I can't imagine that shit.

  3. Due to my day drinking you had me for a second about clicking on crime junkies for a edited podcast. I thought if they drop the bad language and gore the podcast must be two minutes. Then I realized it was a passive aggressive swipe at another podcast. I listen to a ungodly amount of podcasts, but crime junkies isn't on my list. I really like necronompod, true crime Kent, and the defense diaries. Jen C. Is my favorite.

    1. Ha, I took that off. I just wanted to make myself laugh for a second. I don't know how podcast like those are so damn popular and it seems that we are still clawing up from the bottom. Then again, I can't see how you could listen to us talk about the 'Joys of Menstruation' for nearly 15 minutes on ours.

  4. Blood looks totally real. Usually it looks fake in movies because it’s made too thin and see through. Like corn syrup! Haha
    Also, the corpses have that ashy, waxen appearance they get when blood isn’t circulating anymore. ( I’ve worked in funeral homes)
    I believe the “Perp” held saw to his neck, then turned it on.
    Wild story. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Elly, that's a really good point. I bet he did put it to his neck before turning it on. I didn't even think of that. I'll shout you out on Tuesday's episode!
