The lifeless body of 19-year-old student Kristina Prihodko was found in a forest near Novosibirsk, two days after she was reported to have disappeared.
Her naked body was left in nylon near a water reservoir in the wild near the River Ob. The body was covered with snow.
The girl, who was described by many people as a beauty with a model look, was murdered, and the investigation showed that the student was raped before her death. Two men over the age of 28 are the suspects of this terrible crime, and they were arrested when police stopped a vehicle during the control, in which the police found the boot of a murdered girl.
Police warned that the murder that attracted great media attention in Russia was probably carefully planned.
Kristina, as well as many attractive female students, put her provocative photos on a Russian site where young Russians are looking for sponsors, so police suspect that she was killed by being labeled through an announcement.
Believing that she was going to a photo shoot, the girl went to a house away from the city. Her father reported that she had disappeared the same day and she had not returned home from college.
After the reporting from her father, a massive search was organized by many policemen and local volunteers. They found her body after a two days research.
One of the suspects in the murder was also a suspect in a criminal case involving rape which happened the last year. That case was closed because there wasn’t enough evidence.
Few days before her disappearing, her father said that they were having an argument because of his daughter’s behavior.
