Grandfather of historian Sokolov’s victim: “human couldn’t commit such crime”
Today, Anastasia Yeshchenko was buried in the Krasnodar region.
The grandfather of graduate student of St. Petersburg State University Anastasia Yeshchenko, who was killed by historian Oleg Sokolov, doubted that the killer was a human being.
“I want people to be people. I can’t interpret the punishment for this person. It doesn’t fit in my head that a person can do this,” the deceased girl’s grandfather told REN TV.
Today, Anastasia Yeshchenko was buried in the Krasnodar region. The church in the village of Starovelichkovskaya, where the farewell ceremony was held, could not accommodate all those who came to say Anastasia goodbye; some people were standing outside.
The funeral was held in closed mode. It was attended only by relatives and friends of the murdered girl. Yeshenko was buried in a closed coffin.
According to investigators, on November 7, an ex-docent at St. Petersburg State University shot his lover with a sawn-off shotgun. After that, Sokolov dismembered the corpse. Two days later, he tried to get rid of it. The drunk historian was pulled out of the water on the Moika River embankment.
Some parts of the victim’s body were found in his apartment. During interrogation, Sokolov confessed to the murder.
