Younger son of hockey player Sokolov detained for murder of mother and attack on brother
15-year-old Arseny’s theory was considered unconvincing by the investigators.
Law enforcers have detained 15-year-old Arseny Sokolov on suspicion of murder of his mother and attempt on his 18-year-old brother Maksim, reports Baza Telegram channel.
The investigation found Arseny’s theory - according to which his brother tried to kill him and then attacked the mother - unconvincing. Meanwhile, Arseny ran away to their neighbors’ apartment to seek help. He says when he came back, he saw his mother’s dead body, flipped out and attacked Maksim. And more interestingly, Arseny states a week ago, his brother told him he was planning a ritual killing of the family.
Law enforcers are considering another plot: Arseny attacked both his brother and mother and then went to their neighbors’ apartment to make it look like he was seeking help. When he came back home and saw Maksim was still alive, Arseny attacked him in order to finish off the unwanted eyewitness.
It is not reported why the teenager brought himself to killing his own mother. Arseny is still sticking to his story. He states he did not kill his mother. Maksim is in serious condition in the ICU.
The Investigative Committee posted a video from the apartment where the massacre had taken place.
