Philip Grigoryev St Petersburg, Russian man pushes corpse of strangled girlfriend in wheelbarrow in streets after strangling her to death.
Law enforcement alleged after beating and killing her, Grigoryev went to get a wheelbarrow and loaded her body into it, covered in boards as he sought a hiding spot for the woman’s body.
The stage fitter – who lost his job due to the coronavirus lockdown – who had been drinking then took the wheelbarrow from an apartment they shared in Oranzhevaya Street, Yanino.
For an hour the drunk man walked around the suburb before going into an apartment block on Gollanskaya Street, and using a lift to reach the 12th floor where he dumped the corpse.
