Mummified bodies dressed like dolls were found in a Russian man's home. It's the work of an accused grave robber, according to Russian authorities.

A police spokeswoman said 28 human-sized dolls were found in 45-year-old Anatoly Moskvin's home. Some of the dolls were plastic, some were believed to be corpses stolen from graves, but most were dressed in women's clothes.

Authorities said some of Moskvin's bigger plastic dolls had human remains stashed inside.

Moskvin is reported to be a historian with a rare interest in cemeteries.
