Aleksandr Rubel (born 25 December 1980) is a serial killer convicted of six murders in Tallinn, Estonia. Sentenced as a minor to the maximum punishment allowed by law (eight years of imprisonment), he was released from Tartu Prison on 8 June 2006. Now, Rubel lives in Ukraine.


Rubel, a solvent abuser, had huffed gasoline vapours before committing his crimes.

On 19 September 1997, Rubel killed Tonu Pold (born 1952), a handicapped neighbour. According to Rubel's testimony he had a desire to kill anybody at that time, and had picked Tonu as his first victim because he knew Tonu Pold could not mount a spirited defense.

On 7 November 1997 Rubel's second victim, Aleksei Pavlov, was first stabbed four times by Rubel's father Andrei Rubel. According to his testimony Pavlov had been a guest of the Rubel's and Andrei Rubel had believed Pavlov had been courting his wife.

Pursuant to the stabbing, Aleksandr Rubel helped Pavlov into an empty room within the house, where he strangled him and threw him out the third-floor window.

Andrei Rubel was convicted as an accessory in this murder and sentenced to seven years imprisonment.

Between 22–24 January 1998, Rubel stabbed Jevgeni Shelest (born 1947) to death at the Stroomi Beach.

On 2 February 1998, Rubel decapitated Vladimir Ivanov (born 1954), a random passerby.

Rubel dispatched and decapitated Ivanov using an axe after asking him for a cigarette and five EEK "for gasoline".

On 9 February 1998, Rubel killed Olga Voronkova (born 1944), a neighbour tenant in the tenement house in which the Rubel resided in Kopli (Kopli 100B).

Between 28 February and 1 March 1998, Rubel killed Vladimir Kinzerski (born 1944) in his house.

On 4 June 1998, Rubel killed 15-year-old Alice Siivas (born 22 February 1983) in Paljassaare by slitting her throat.
