Investigators find blood traces in apartment of two missing Russians in Munich
A husband is the main suspect as he inherits the wife’s Moscow estate.
German investigators found traces of blood in the Munich apartment of two missing Russians: 41-year-old Maria Gertsuski and her 16-year-old daughter Tatiana. No bodies have yet been found. The car of the gone girls and a foot mat from a Munich apartment were found in the forest, Bild reports.
“The fact that a husband who is the heir, his car in the forest where the rug was found proves that the crime may have been committed out of mercenary motives,” lawyer Raban Funk from the Association of German Criminal Lawyers affairs said.
Maria owns an apartment in the center of Moscow. Real estate will be transferred to her husband after five years if the woman’s body is never found.
Investigators did not find traces of breaking into the Munich apartment. Perhaps the killer was familiar with the missing. On July 21, police detained Maria's spouse, Roman Shchishchenko. Mother and daughter disappeared on July 13 after driving to the mall.
