Schoolgirl’s severed head found in St. Petersburg murder case

MOSCOW, February 3 (RIA Novosti) - The severed head of a schoolgirl who went missing on January 19 was discovered by residents in St. Petersburg on Tuesday, a law enforcement source said.

"Residents found the head of a young woman. Presumably it is the head of the victim in the ‘Florist and Butcher Case,'" the source said.

The case got its name from the professions of two suspects arrested on Saturday. Yuri Mozhnov worked at a florist's and Maxim Golovatskikh was a butcher in St. Petersburg's main meat market.

The two men, who investigators say both have criminal records, were immersed in Goth and Emo culture.

The investigations report states that on the night of January 19 the two young men drowned the girl, an 11th grader in school, in the bathtub, cut her body into pieces and ate some of her internal organs. The remaining body parts were put in bags and thrown in dumpsters and waterways.

A criminal case of murder has been opened and if convicted the men face up to 15 years in prison.
