Police Detain 2 for Throwing Body Parts Out Window

Moscow police detained two men in southern Moscow on Wednesday night after they threw bags of human remains out a window, a police spokesman said Thursday.

The incident occurred after police arrived at an apartment building located at 95 Volgogradsky Prospekt for an investigation they were conducting, the details of which have not been disclosed, Itar-Tass reported Thursday.

Officers rang the doorbell of one of the apartments, apparently prompting the two men inside to dispose of the human remains kept inside the apartment.

The men "threw two bags with remains of a female body out the window," police said.

The suspects were immediately detained, and the body parts sent to a lab to begin an investigation.

The identity of the deceased has yet to be determined.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
