A 23-year-old Russian model has sadly been found dead in a suitcase more than a year since she disappeared. Gretta Vedler's ex-boyfriend Dmitry Korovin admitted to murdering her over an argument about money, later hacking into her social media accounts and posting content as if she was still alive.

Speaking to detectives, Korovin revealed he had strangled Vedler before spending three night's alone with her body in a hotel room. He later stuffed her body into a suitcase and drove more than 300 miles across the country where he left it in the boot of a car. To avoid being caught Korovin, who is also 23-years-old, admitted he had continued to post photos and share messages from the model's social media accounts in a bid to fool friends and family into thinking that she was still alive.

But her close contacts grew suspicious with a friend, Evgeniy Foster, urging another friend to file a missing person's report in Moscow. After Vedler's body was discovered, her ex allegedly demonstrated how he'd killed her and made a full confession.

Previously, the model had spoken out against President Putin's leadership in Russia, using her platform to raise concerns. One month before her death, in January 2021, she took to social media to brand him a "psychopath" [per Metro].

"I can only assume, in my opinion, a clear psychopathy or sociopathy is seen in him," she wrote. "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."

She ended her post by asking followers, "But can he really do anything?" before rhetorically answering, "I think you know the answer to this question yourself."

In recent weeks, the Ukrainian people have faced growing conflict and violence from Russia, with almost three million fleeing the country to seek refuge across Europe.
