Body Wrapped in Rug Found Near Moscow Park

The dead body of a young woman wrapped in a rug has been found by a park in north-eastern Moscow.

A police spokesman said the woman, who was discovered by the Moscow Botanical Gardens, was born in 1992 and that external injuries were visible on her body, RIA Novosti reported Tuesday. No other details about the killing were provided.

Last fall, the mutilated body of a young woman in her 20s was found in another park in southern Moscow — Bitsevksy Park — though her killer was never caught.

A serial killer nicknamed "Chessboard Killer" by the media also killed most of his 49 known victims in the sprawling wooded area at Bitsevsky Park between 2001 and 2006.
