Decaying Corpse Found Suspended From Hospital Fence

A man's body was found slung from a fence in the town of Khimki, just outside Moscow, Interfax reported Tuesday.

The body is believed to have remained dangling from the fence for at least five months before having been discovered and retrieved by local police.

The fence bordered the 119th clinical hospital in Khimki's Novogorsk district.

A police spokesperson confirmed the grisly discovery to Interfax, but refrained from providing any further details about the incident.
