A 22-year-old Russian woman named Kristina Medvedeva was beheaded on her very first date with a man she met online. Kristina, a shop assistant in the Russian city of Ekaterinburg, was seeking for love on the internet and reportedly described her relationship status as ‘actively searching’ on one social media site.
Russian Media say she was known to be active on at least one dating website. She shared a flat with a friend, and had gone on a first date with a stranger on 24 July, the day she was murdered.
Her badly mutilated body with her head almost totally severed was found on the shore of a lake close to a residential area, three days after she was last seen. Reports say there was no evidence that she had been raped and the police have also not been able to track the man she was with from her internet history.
