Funeral of mob Vagon scheduled for Thursday
His body will be delivered to Nizhny Novgorod.
The body of thief in law Vladimir Vagin (Vagon), who was found strung up in his cell at the Perm colony, will be handed over to his relatives. It is assumed that this night the deceased will be delivered to Nizhny Novgorod. Komsomolskaya Pravda quotes a confidential source.
It is known that a requiem is scheduled on Wednesday, September 26, and the funeral will be held the next day on Thursday. According to the source, a funeral service will be held in a separate hall of the church. According to the version of the FSIN staff, Vagin committed suicide.
Recall, the death of Vagin was reported on September 21. 54-year-old kingpin committed suicide in a cell in the IK-11 in the village of Nyrob of the Perm region in the interval between 10:30 and 11:00 pm hours.
The week before, he was transferred from another colony and, according to his lawyer, did not express thoughts about suicide.
The Investigative Committee has already initiated an investigation. Senior assistant of the ICR for the Perm region Irina Neznamova has previously reported that Vagin's death was nonviolent.
Vagon had to serve less than three years out of the 7.5 for the attempted murder of a police officer.
In March 2009, Vagon wounded graduate of the Academy of Internal Affairs Fedor Luchinkin in a domestic fight.
Since 2016, the kingpin served time in IK-35 in the village of Central Chusovsky district of Perm Krai, from where he was transferred to the IK-10, and later to the IK-11.
It concerns entrepreneur Dmitry Motorin, Boris Usherovich, a co-owner of the Group of Companies 1520, and Novoe Vremya board member, Ivan Stankevich. Motorin is accused of giving a bribe on an especially large scale, and Stankevich and Usherovich are charged with bribe-taking.
This week, the judicial debates in the trial of Vladimir Barsukov-Kumarin charged with creation of Tambovskie organized criminal group have been finished in the Kuibyshevsky District Court of St. Petersburg. If the court upholds the stance of the state prosecution, the once-influential criminal ‘authority’ may be convicted to almost 25 years behind bars. In reality, this translates into a life term for the legend of criminal St. Petersburg.
