A Russian Instagram influencer has been found stabbed to death in a suitcase, police have said.
Ekaterina Karaglanova, 24, was found by her parents with her throat slit in her rented apartment in Moscow on Friday.
Ms Karaglanova, who had more than 85,000 followers on Instagram, was discovered after her family became concerned when she did not contact them for several days.
They called the landlord to request access to her apartment and found her body in a suitcase in the hallway.
Her father called for an ambulance, but she had reportedly already died, Russian newspaper Moskovsky Komsomolets reported.
The paper said Ms Karaglanova had recently started a new relationship and planned to travel to the Netherlands to celebrate her birthday on 30 July.
Police said CCTV footage showed her former boyfriend had visited her apartment in the days around her appearance, MK reported.
The current whereabouts of the boyfriend is unknown.
The paper said jealousy was being investigated as a possible motive for the killing.
Police also said there was no evidence of a struggle at the apartment and no murder weapon was found at the scene.
Ms Karaglanova had recently graduated as a doctor and specialised in dermatology.
