Missing man found buried in cement in basement near St. Petersburg
The man was searched for since October last year.
A corpse of a man buried in cement was found in the basement of a private house in the Leningrad region. The deceased has already been identified - he turned out to be 40-year-old Viktor M., who was reported missing since last October, REN TV informs.
According to the channel, the body was found in a private house in the village of Naziya. On the head of the murdered man was a package wrapped with tape, his throat, breast and ribs were broken. According to the preliminary version, the man was killed by his acquaintance, Emil Kh., born in 1988, who was previously convicted.
He had already confessed to the crime and reported that the murder had been committed during a drunken quarrel. Experts found that the detainee struck about 10 blows with his fist to the head of his opponent. To hide the traces of the crime, the evil-doer dug a hole in the basement, hid the body in it and filled it with cement.
The Prosecutor General's Office had earlier accused the Moscow region’s ex-official of exceeding official authority, taking a bribe on an especially large scale, and forgery, and demanded to seize assets worth of 9 billion rubles ($135 million) from him.
