On a grey winter’s morning, the captain of a tugboat made a gory discovery in the Vistula River in the centre of Krakow. Stuck in the propeller of his boat, was the skin of missing student, Katarzyna Zowada. There was no body, it was just the skin, sliced off with surgical precision. This case became one of the biggest unsolved mysteries in Poland’s criminal history. Until October 2017, when a local man was arrested.
