MOSCOW, October 7 (Itar-Tass) — The detectives detained three suspected killers of the deputy chief of the Podolsk authorities Vera Sviridova, who was killed on September 26.
“Three suspected killers – a 48-year-old driver, his 31-year-old son and a 25-year-old acquaintance from the city of Oryol – were detained,” spokesman of the Investigation Committee Vladimir Markin told Itar-Tass on Friday.
“The detainees are being interrogated. They already confessed that they committed the murder to steal the money and property of the official,” he added.
The suspected killers were traced down already a few days ago. The driver of the killed official, his son and a young man, who got some money from Sviridova’s credit card, were detained.
The deputy chief of the Podolsk authorities and the chief of the financial department, Vera Sviridova, was killed at a cottage in the village of Svitino in the morning on September 26. Her driver found her dead. The forensic expertise showed that she died of two lethal head gunshot wounds.
In the search through Sviridova’s cottage the detectives found that jewellery items, a mobile phone, the bag with the documents and credit cards were stolen. About 300,000 roubles were taken from two Sviridova’s credit cards in the morning on the murder day. The detectives made public a video record of the suspected killer from the ATM video camera.
