3 Men Found Dead in Banya

Three men aged between 37 and 47 have been found dead in a private banya in the Sverdlovsk region in the Urals.

Regional investigators are now working to determine the cause of death of the men, who were discovered without any evidence of external injuries, according to a statement issued by the local branch of the Investigative Committee.

The men, who were residents of the village of Novoipatovo, visited the banya, a Russian-style sauna, on Friday evening but were only found Sunday.

Investigators discovered an empty bottle of vodka in the banya and are considering carbon monoxide poisoning and alcohol poisoning among possible causes of death.
