A 34-year-old student and former Marine has been found dead in Russia, days after sending a disturbing text about a possible kidnapping.
Catherine Serou's body was found Saturday in a wooded area 250 miles east of Moscow.
Her mother says Serou sent her a text message last week that read "In a car with a stranger. I hope I'm not being abducted."
Serou is a former Marine who served in Afghanistan, and was studying law at Lobachevsky University.
Russian authorities say the suspect, Alexander Popov, beat and stabbed Serou to death "in the course of a dispute". He's now in custody facing life in prison for murder.
