Police searching for safe buried by Kerch shooter
The law enforcement officers were searching it at a wasteland near the house of Vladislav Roslyakov but failed to find it.
Law enforcement officers examined a wasteland near the house of Vladislav Roslyakov, a student who arranged the shooting at the Kerch Polytechnic College, yet did not find anything, RIA Novosti reports citing a source in the police.
Earlier, REN-TV channel published a video showing a person, who looks like Roslyakov, carrying a safe which he later buried. The police believe the contents of the safe could clarify the motives of the killer, as well as the causes of the tragedy.
REN-TV published another video from the place where Roslyakov burnt his things before the attack on the college. Among the burned items there were parts of a laptop, a sim card, a knife, notebooks, photos, and the Bible. It is reported that Roslyakov also took his children's pictures and 20 thousand rubles from the house.
As RIA Novosti source says, the subject in the hands of the young man on the video does not look like a safe, but looks like a bundle, as it looks "too easy to store weapons."
“As for the place from the video, it was already examined by the law enforcement officers and no safe was found on the waste ground,” the source added.
On Wednesday, October 17, an 18-year-old student of the Kerch Polytechnic College, Vladislav Roslyakov, opened fire at his school. He killed 21 people and injured more than 60. A criminal case was initiated on the fact of the attack (Article 205 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation), but later it was reclassified to a murder of two or more persons (Part 2 of Article 105 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation). Roslyakov shot himself in the college library.
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.
