Teenager jealousy victim buried alive in snow

Teenager jealousy victim buried alive in snow

A gang of teenagers are facing charges over raping and murdering a 15-year-old girl, whose body – tied up and undressed – was discovered by snowboarders in East Siberia.

An investigation into the case found that before death the victim was tortured for several days by eight youngsters – aged between 16 and 20 – including three girls. The suspects have been detained by the police in a case that has shocked the city.

As new details of the crime begin to surface, many questions remain unanswered. The main ones are what made the youngsters turn into monsters and why no one stopped them.

She was an ordinary teenager – neither rebellious nor too quiet – from a good family.

As Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper found out, last year the schoolgirl met 20-year-old Andrey. Sporty, tall and handsome, he seemed to be the girl’s dream come true. He introduced his 15-year-old girlfriend to his friends but the relationship soon broke down. Apparently, the ‘prince’ was an Othello kind and his young lover just couldn’t cope with his jealousy and never-ending scandals.

And that’s when the girl’s life became a nightmare. Andrey couldn’t forgive the schoolgirl for hurting his pride and – together with his fellows – started chasing her and making threats. Keen for revenge, he accused her of stealing a mobile phone.

In an attempt to sort out the issue, the girl – suspecting no danger – agreed to meet Andrey. Her family have never saw her alive again.

For several days the avenger and his fellows raped and tortured the victim in a private flat. And neighbours – who heard her screaming – thought the youngsters were watching an action movie.

When the young sadists had enough, they decided it was time to dispose of their victim. The abusers took her to the outskirts of the city of Bratsk, undressed and tied up where they poured cold water on her and buried alive in snow. As medical experts discovered, the girl – her name is not being made public for ethical reasons – died of hypothermia.

If found guilty the murderers may face life imprisonment.
