Woman's Body Found in Fridge in Moscow

A woman's body has been found in an abandoned refrigerator in eastern Moscow, the Investigative Committee said on Monday.

The body of the woman, aged between 25 and 30, had been stuffed in a two-compartment refrigerator which was found in a trash container, a police source told RIA Novosti.

The woman is believed to have died around two days ago, investigators said. Numerous bruises, abrasions and cuts were found on the body.

The fridge, wrapped in tape, was delivered in a light truck by three unknown persons who asked local workers for help in putting it in the trash container. They disappeared shortly after, eyewitnesses said.

Police have opened a criminal investigation and are searching for the suspects. If convicted of inflicting injury leading to death, the suspects could face up to 15 years in jail.

… 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.

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.
