Week-Old Corpse Found in Duffel Bag in Moscow

A duffel bag containing a man's body was discovered in a residential area of southeastern Moscow, Interfax reported Monday, citing a law enforcement source.

The grisly finding was made Sunday night behind garages located at 22 Trofimova Ulitsa, not far from the Kozhukovskaya metro station.

The man is believed to have died a week ago, Interfax said. His body, which was wrapped in fabric and adhesive tape, did not bear signs of a violent death, according to the report.

An investigation is under way, the news agency reported. (MT)
