Authorities began suspecting this was more than the usual double homicide when they discovered that the slain Soviet immigrants were in the initial stages of being dismembered, and that all of their fingertips had been cut off.

A Moscow high school canceled its annual student exchange program with Czechoslovakia and instead sent 10 students to a school in the San Fernando Valley. The Soviet students--eight girls and two boys from Moscow Secondary School 39-1288--begin two weeks of classes today in computers, American art and politics at Viewpoint School in Calabasas. Officials of the private school said it is the first time Russian exchange students have attended a high school in the Los Angeles area.
