A young man who recently murdered a teacher in a polytechnical college in the Russian capital published selfies with the corpse on social networks, media reported today.
The photos depict the teen smiling while he stands next to the murdered man lying on the floor covered with blood.
A source in law enforcement agencies told RT that the suspect's name was Andrei E.
Photos appeared on the young man's "VKontakte" account about one hour ago. Later, the account was deleted due to numerous user complaints.
