Founder of “Blue Whale” Suicide Game Located/Arrested!

The “administrator” of the sick “Blue Whale” suicide game has been traced by police back to a Moscow postman. And he allegedly had more than 30 schoolgirls under his spell.

Ilya Sidorov, 26, reportedly has confessed to conceiving and creating the social media game that gave youths a series of increasingly risky dares — ending in their own suicides.

Police questioned Sidorov over allegedly instructing a 13-year-old girl in the remote village of Yetkul to jump under a passenger train.

The girl had been taken to a hospital with cuts from an attempted suicide. Previously, he allegedly tasked her with outlining a blue whale on her arm and inflicting self-harm.

Sidorov allegedly broke down under interrogation, admitting to “administrating” a broader online “Blue Whale” challenge.

Sidorov has since been detained and extradited to Chelyabinsk in the Urals, where he faces charges relating to inciting the schoolgirl’s death.

A police spokeswoman said mobile phones, a tablet computer and several SIM cards have been seized as evidence.
