Plastic bags and boxes with dismembered bodies of a man and a woman were taken out of Moskva River a month ago.

A man and two women have been detained on suspicion of killing Muscovites, whose dismembered bodies had been discovered in Moskva River late in July. The Main Investigative Department of the ICR in the city of Moscow initiated a criminal case under the article Murder of two or more persons (item (a), part 2 of Art. 105 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation).

According to the investigation, the detainees could have killed their victims, a man and a woman, to take possession of their real estate. At the moment, investigators are trying to establish whether the defendants have been involved in other offences of this kind. They have already been charged and are going to be tried soon. Their likely accomplices are being searched for.

To remind, on July 29, 2017 two black plastic bags were found on the southern bank of the Moskva River near the Borisovskiye Prudy Street, with fragments of a woman's body. Later, on the afternoon of August 1, eight plastic bags and two cemented cardboard boxes with remains of a man's body were found on the same bank.

Recently, a gang of black realtors was convicted in the Russian capital. They would get rid of apartment owners using lethal injection. Vitaly Studenikin, the leader of the criminal group, was sentenced to 19 years in a strict regime colony. Andrey Sizov and Valery Semenov, his accomplices that executed the murders, got 18 years of imprisonment each.

The criminals would conclude contracts of life annuity with their victims, under which they were supposed to become legal owners of the apartments in exchange for maintenance of the current senior owners till the end of their days. They did not want to wait till the natural death occurred though. The investigators managed to establish two murders committed by the gang, while one more senior man was able to defend himself.
