VIENNA (Reuters) - The body of a young man was found in an elegant Vienna square with a rake embedded in his head, Austrian police said Saturday.
Cleaners on their way to work at Vienna’s famous Albertina Museum made the gruesome discovery at a building site on the adjacent square of the same name, a police statement said.
A trail of blood indicated that the man had been involved in a fight on the square after midnight Friday and was dragged to the construction area, where he was repeatedly struck in the head with a rake from the site, it said.
Police were examining film from a nearby surveillance camera for any sign of the assailant or assailants.
