Russian model Gretta Vedler, 23, murdered for insulting dictator Vladimir Putin.
From the New York Post
Gretta Vedler , a Russian model who called Vladimir Putin a “psychopath,” was found dead in a suitcase a year later after disappearing. Vedler’s disappearance came a month after posted an anti-Putin rant on social media.
“Vedler’s ex-boyfriend Dmitry Korovin, 23, has confessed to strangling her to death before driving her 300 miles to the Lipetsk region and abandoning the body in the trunk of a car,” the Daily Star reported. Korovin said he slept in a hotel room with her body for three nights before placing it in a newly bought suitcase.
Gretta ‘s social media posts showed that she was concerned over his crackdown on protests and what she saw as a desire to forge a bigger Russia.
“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,” she wrote, according to the Daily Mirror.
‘Given the fact that Putin went through a lot of humiliation in childhood, he could not stand up for himself due to his [slight] physical form, it is not surprising that he left after law school and joined the KGB,’ she wrote.
‘Such people are timid and fearful from childhood, afraid of noise and darkness, strangers, so traits such as caution, restraint, and lack of communication are developed early in their character.
She told her followers: ‘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. Maybe he really wants to enhance the integrity of Russia and sincerely wishes the good for the Russians. But can he really do anything?’
She made clear she had grave doubts. ‘I think you know the answer to this question yourself,’ she posted.
Korovin told investigators that he kept posting pictures and messages on the model’s social media in an attempt to make friends believe she was still alive. He told interrogators that he slept in a hotel room for three nights with her corpse which he put in a newly-bought suitcase.
But a male friend called Evgeniy Foster – a blogger in Kharkiv, the Ukrainian city blitzed by Russian forces – became suspicious and found a friend in Moscow to file a missing person case. This triggered a search which eventually located her body. A video from Russia’s Investigative Committee shows Korovin allegedly demonstrating how he killed the model, and making a full confession.
P.S. Anyone who thinks this is just a coincidence, raise your hand.
