Body of Russian model who called Vladimir Putin a 'psychopath' found in suitcase

The body of a Russian model who called Vladimir Putin a 'psychopath' has been found in suitcase a year after she went missing.

Gretta Vedler was killed a month after she criticised the Russian President on social media, calling him a 'psychopath.' The body of the 23 year old Russian model was found in a suitcase more than a year after she went missing.

'Clear psychopathy or sociopathy'

She criticised Putin due to his desire to 'enhance the integrity of Russia.' In January 2021, Vedler voiced concerns over Putin’s crackdown on protests and wrote:

I can only assume, in my opinion, clear psychopathy or sociopathy is seen in him. For psychopaths, it is important to constantly experience a sense of fullness and sharpness of life, so they love risk, intense experiences, intense communication, intense activity - an intense and dynamic life.

However, this was not the cause of her murder.

Strangled to death and stuffed in a suitcase

Vedler’s boyfriend Dmitry Korovin admitted to strangling her to death over financial problems in Moscow, as reported by The Mirror, citing a video from Russia’s Investigative Committee.

Her friend Evgeniy Foster–a blogger from Kharkiv–reportedly became suspicious and asked a friend in Moscow to file a missing person’s report.

Mr Korovin told authorities that he stayed in a hotel for three nights with her body, which was placed into a newly-purchased suitcase. He then drove the body to the Lipetsk region in western Russia and left it for a year in the boot of the car.

Mr Korovin allegedly continued posting photographs and messages on the model’s social media to give a false impression that she was still alive.

On Sunday, Russian media reported finding the body in the boot of the car.

The alleged perpetrator was made to show how he killed the model and confess to the crime, according to a video from Russia’s investigative committee.
