A Russian model who called Vladimir Putin a "psychopath" has been found dead and stuffed inside a suitcase, according to reports.
Russian media reported the finding of the body in the trunk of a car on Sunday.
According to FOX News, Gretta Vedler, 23, went missing a year ago following her anti-Putin social media outburst, although the two incidents do not appear to be linked.
The Independent reported, her friend and a blogger from Ukraine allegedly grew suspicious and asked a friend in Moscow to file a missing person’s report.
According to the Daily Star, Vedler's ex-boyfriend Dmitry Korovin, 23, confessed to strangling her to death and abandoning the body in the trunk of a car.
FOX News reported, Korovin informed authorities that he slept in a hotel room with her body, which was packed in a recently purchased suitcase, for three nights. The man then placed her body in the trunk for a year while continuing to post to her social media accounts to give the impression that she was still alive.
Vedler expressed concern over Putin's crackdown on protests in January 2021, according to a report.
"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 Mirror.
