Man suspected of murdering Burger King manager gets detained
The offender was previously involved in a series of attacks on drivers in the Moscow region and another murder.
Law enforcement bodies have detained the man suspected of murdering the manager of two Burger King restaurants Irina Akhmatova, who went missing when driving her car on the road from Moscow to Tula. According to REN TV, the suspect was a man previously convicted of rape and fraud. Some sources say the criminal is involved in a number of robberies — he attacked drivers in the Moscow region; he is also responsible for a murder committed in 2011.
To recall, December 23, Irina Akhmatova picked up a hitchhiker on the road from Moscow to Tula using the BlaBlaCar service. After that, she dropped out of contact and went missing. A few days later, her car was found without a license plate in Yaroslavl.
A criminal case under Murder (Art. 105 of the Russian Criminal Code) has been initiated. During the investigation, it turned out that Irina's passenger was listed on the site under a false name and picture.
It was previously reported that an unknown person had demanded 100 thousand rubles ($1,438) for the release of his wife.
