‘Authorities’ interrogated in case into murder of ‘thief in law’ Ando Khromoy
Representatives of the criminal world - in their turn - wondered whether the case had been solved.
Armenia’s police interrogated criminal ‘authorities’ in a case into murde of a 46-year-old ‘thief in law’ Andranik Arutyunyan (aka Ando Khromoy or Massivtsy Ando), reports Zhokhovurd newspaper.
Who exactly was present at the interrogation is not being specified, but the newspaper notes that law enforcers asked representatives of the criminal world to share their theory of what had happened.
“Many said they didn’t know. There was theory that it could be revenge for murder that had happened 10 or 15 years ago,” reports the newspaper.
Representatives of the criminal world - in their turn - wondered whether the case had been solved and whether there were suspects, but police do not disclose this data in fear for there could be those who want to revenge for Ando Khromoy.
The CrimeRussia reported that the motive for the murder of the ‘thief in law’ could be revenge for involvement in an affront offered to another ‘thief’ Andranik Sogoyan (aka Zap). Ando Khromoy was shot by a killer in the evening, on July 2, in a bedroom district of Erevan. He became Armenia’s history’s first ‘thief in law’ who was killed in the capital city.
The criminal world believes what has happened is renewal of arguments between Erevan and Leninakansk ‘thieves’. Besides settling accounts with each other, there’s intimidation of the others behind the murder of Arutyunyan. Meanwhile, the murder of the ‘thief in law’ - whose destiny was not decided upon at the ‘convention’ - is considered lawlessness and punishable by death.
