A US Embassy employee in Ukraine has died in a suspected murder near railroad tracks in a park, police said.
The American woman, who was not identified, was discovered unconscious Wednesday with a head injury, wearing running gear and headphones near a railway that passes through a park in Kyiv, police said.
The woman, who had her US embassy ID badge on her person, was brought to the hospital, where she later died, authorities said.
Police said they’re searching for a dark-haired man between ages 30 and 40, who wore dark shorts and a T-shirt, and may have been responsible for beating the woman to death.
Interior Ministry spokesman Artem Shevchenko shared photos of the scene on Facebook where the woman’s body was found.
“The National Police of Ukraine is investigating her death as a deliberate murder … but an accidental death is not ruled out,” he wrote.
In a statement, the US embassy said they were “heartbroken” about the death of the colleague.
“Officials from U.S. Embassy Kyiv are currently working with authorities to determine the circumstances of the death,” the embassy wrote on Twitter.
