Further on September 12, a new case upon the same facts was initiated over two episodes of waste. They were united in one production and next day charges were brought to Korshunov.
Earlier it was reported that Korshunov is suspected of creation of a criminal scheme within which more than 1 billion rubles ($17.3 million) were stolen.

Inability to answer this question was the reason the media covered the complicated case after the police made a mistake and gave the killer’s telephone number to the victim’s parents. Reading his messages made them believe he was not the only killer. Did the police fail to go after the other killers due to their family members been high-ranking police officers?
