    MOSCOW, November 17 (RIA Novosti) - A corpse with occult symbols carved into it has been discovered in Russia's second city of St. Petersburg, the Fontanka Internet portal reported on Monday.

    The body of the unidentified man, said to be in his thirties, was found hanging from a tree on Sunday afternoon in the Olgino region of the city, a short distance from the Baltic Sea's Gulf of Finland.

    Fontanka said that the dead man had a Celtic cross carved on his forehead, an upside down pentagram cut into his chest, and the words, "I go to take revenge" carved into his left arm. He was dressed in a black leather jacket, black trousers, and army type boots.

    An investigation is underway.
