Body of woman found floating in container on Orlík Dam

The body of a woman has been found in the Orlík Dam near Prague, a fire service spokesperson said. The corpse was found in a plastic container, after fishermen alerted the authorities to a strange object floating on the dam. Doctors said the body had been in the water for at least three months. In the early 1990s the bodies of two businessmen and a policeman were found in barrels in the Orlík Dam. Two people received life sentences for those killings, while others – including a police officer – received lengthy jail terms.
