A money raising campaign has been launched for these purposes.

Russian snowboarder Dmitry Koltsov, who was killed in the US, will be transported to Moscow. The social networks page dedicated to fans of skateboarding announced that a money raising campaign has been launched for these purposes.

31-year-old Dmitry Koltsov was a member of the national teams of Russia and Moscow, the winner of the Russian Cup, and the reigning champion of Russia in snowboarding.

To recall, Koltsov was shot from a nearby car in Los Angeles on June 10. The offender disappeared; an hour later, he put a bullet in the head of the deputy sheriff of the district, Joseph Solano. The police officer died two days later. During the attack on Solano, he did not wear his uniform and badge, so the killer might not be aware who he was shooting.

On the day of the murder, the shooter also robbed a gas station and a supermarket. The media wrote that the defendant left home with a gun in late May and had problems with drugs. Nelson faces a life sentence or death penalty.
