Cop Dies After Naked Stroll

A police officer in Tomsk died after undressing and walking naked through the city's freezing streets.

The unidentified man left for his stroll after suffering a blow to the head during a night out and being driven home by an acquaintance.

"A female friend of his wife offered to take him home [after his head injury], and he agreed," a source in the local security forces told Interfax. "The woman dropped the man off outside his house. … He entered the building, got completely undressed and then went outside."

The man was hospitalized after his nocturnal ramble and underwent multiple amputations before dying of his injuries. An investigation into the incident is ongoing.
