Russian investigators, who had been looking for a missing American since Tuesday, announced on Saturday that they had found her body. They arrested a man suspected of having killed her.
Catherine Serou, 34, disappeared Tuesday evening after leaving her apartment in Nizhny Novgorod, 400 km east of Moscow. She had left in an unidentified car. “In the car with a man I don’t know. I hope I’m not being kidnapped,” said the last text sent to his mother.
The mother, Becci Serou, explained that it was possible that her daughter had hitchhiked. The latter had a very rushed race to do, a bill to settle in a clinic, and would not have had the patience to wait for her Uber.
The suspect already convicted of serious crimes
“Today, after a large-scale search operation, we discovered the body of the young woman,” the Investigation Committee, charged in Russia with investigating important crimes, said on Saturday. A resident of Nizhny Novgorod in his forties, known to the police to have already been convicted of several serious crimes, was arrested.
Rescue teams and many volunteers had participated in the search, in a wooded area near the city, where the last signal of the young woman’s phone had been located. She was enrolled in a master’s degree in law at the city’s university, and then planned to return to the United States to work as a lawyer specializing in immigration issues.
The US Embassy was unreachable on Saturday for comment.
