Major crimes detective shot dead in Moscow region
This is the second attempt on the investigator for the last year.
Investigator of major crimes Evgenya Shishkina has been shot dead in Moscow region, the Mash Telegram channel writes.
The offender shot the investigator around 07:00 am, when Shishkina was leaving the house entrance in the village of Arkhangelsk, said Olga Vradiy, the representative of the Investigation Committee of the Russian Federation in the Moscow region. The woman was wounded to the neck. She died before the ambulance arrived.
The Moscow region Investigative Committee opened a criminal case under part 1 of Art. 105 of the Criminal Code (Murder).
In January of this year, Shishkina survived the assassination. On the night of January 13-14, unknown persons set to her car on fire.
Evgenia Shishkina was a Lieutenant Colonel of Justice and worked as a senior investigator for special cases of the Investigation Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia in the Central Federal District.
Shishkina conducted high-profile cases related to economic crimes and fraud. According to open sources, in 2013, the investigator uncovered a group of fraudsters who earned hundreds of thousands of rubles on train ticket scams.
It concerns entrepreneur Dmitry Motorin, Boris Usherovich, a co-owner of the Group of Companies 1520, and Novoe Vremya board member, Ivan Stankevich. Motorin is accused of giving a bribe on an especially large scale, and Stankevich and Usherovich are charged with bribe-taking.
This week, the judicial debates in the trial of Vladimir Barsukov-Kumarin charged with creation of Tambovskie organized criminal group have been finished in the Kuibyshevsky District Court of St. Petersburg. If the court upholds the stance of the state prosecution, the once-influential criminal ‘authority’ may be convicted to almost 25 years behind bars. In reality, this translates into a life term for the legend of criminal St. Petersburg.
