A Russian oligarch has reportedly been murdered with a crossbow while sitting in an outdoor sauna.

Vladimir Marugov owned some of Russia's largest meat-processing plants and he was nicknamed 'The Sausage King.'

The BBC reports that Marugov and his partner were in the outdoor sauna when they were attacked by masked assailants.

It happened Monday at Marugov's countryside estate about 25 miles outside of Moscow.
