Florist and Butcher

The severed head of a missing schoolgirl has been discovered by St. Petersburg residents, a presumed victim of the Florist and Butcher killers.

The case got its name from the professions of two suspects arrested on Saturday. Yuri Mozhnov worked at a florist's and Maxim Golovatskikh was a butcher in St. Petersburg's main meat market.

The two men, who investigators say both have criminal records, were immersed in Goth and Emo culture.

If these two were both Goth and Emo small wonder they were confused. Though how they worked up the organizational skills or requisite motivation to carry out a murder is beyond me. Not to make light of the situation, obviously. Will update once I have worked out what the Russian press thinks Emo looks like when it is at home.
