Road Patrol Service officer murdered Armavir businessmen
A former employee of the victims was a member of the gang that has planned and committed the murder.
It took the law enforcement authorities less than three days to solve the murder of two Armavir businessmen. Their bodies shot through the heads were found in the elevator of a building located at 87 Lenina street – the victims used to rent an apartment in the center of Armavir.
According to Region Online web portal, the businessmen were natives of Azerbaijan. They owned a chain of discount stores in Armavir and planned a trip to Moscow for another shipment of merchandise shortly before their death. Their killers-to-be were aware about this.
The investigators have found that the crime had been committed by a group of ‘like-minded’ persons involving a former employee of the victims, former Road Patrol Service officer, and two unknown people. The greed for gain was the reason behind the nightmarish murder. On that day, the businessmen had a large amount of money – almost 17 millions – with them. Obviously, the cash was not found at the crime scene – the killers have taken it.
According to sources in law enforcement authorities, in total four people were involved into the organization and commission of that murder. All of them have been detained, investigative activities are ongoing.
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.
