97-year-old WWII veteran robbed and killed
The criminals robbed the victim, and then returned at night for forgotten evidence.
In the Stavropol Region, unknown robbers killed the WWII veteran Nadezhda Stratychuk, 97. They entered her house under the guise of gas workers and robbed the pensioner, and later, at night, returned for the left evidence and broke her skull, the regional ICR’ Investigative Directorate, which opened a criminal case of robbery (part 4 of Article 162 CCRF), reports.
The murder occurred on the evening of January 10 in the village of Kursavki, the Andropovsky District. The robbers climbed into Stratiychuk’s house through the window to pick up the folder with fake documents and the money they had left in the afternoon. As the investigation established, they covered the sleeping veteran with a blanket and started beating, after which grabbed the money and the passport and disappeared.
Stratiychuk died two days later in the hospital. The investigators added an episode about the intentional infliction of grievous bodily harm that resulted in death (part 4 of Article 111 CCRF) to the charges. Head of the regional ICR administration Igor Ivanov personally supervises the course of the investigation. The intruders’ trail breaks off in the local Sberbank office, says Bolshoy Stavropolsky kanal.
As Strattiychuk's fellow villagers wrote on social networks, she was very popular in the village, worked in the local hospital, and a street and the local school were named after her brother Pyotr.
