An American woman who worked for the US embassy in Ukraine was killed while jogging in the capital city of Kyiv Wednesday. Sources tell the Guardian the woman had a non-diplomatic job and was married to a US foreign service officer. She was found unconscious with a head injury near railway tracks that run through Nyvky Park, near the mission, and died at a nearby hospital, NBC News reports. A forensic examination will determine her cause of death, but authorities are searching for a tall, dark-haired man in his 30s who was wearing black shorts, a T-shirt, and blue running shoes.
