Fiji: Body parts of vanished Russian couple discovered on Natadola beach.

The body parts of a missing Russian couple have washed up on one of the world’s most beautiful beaches.

A severed head, wrapped with a cloth and weighed down with rocks, was found in the waters of Fiji’s Natadola beach by a New Zealand couple this week.


The body parts include heads and feet.

It comes after two pairs of feet washed up on the shore of the tourist hotspot last month.

Police say the body parts belonged to Yuriy Shipulin and Nataliya Gerasimova, a couple who retired to Fiji five years ago, the Guardian reported.

Mr Shipulin, an ex-pilot with a number of failed business ventures behind him, was reportedly owed more than £15,000.

Friend of the couple Maxim told the paper: “Yuriy would give you the shirt off his back, he was too trusting and he was taken to the cleaners by unscrupulous people. 

“He found out the hard way. He wanted paradise so bad, he couldn’t see it was rotten.” 

The pair had been reported missing on June 16 and their car was later found with the keys still in the ignition.
