MOSCOW, November 13 (Itar-Tass) —— There are no suspects in the murder of Sergiyev Posad administration head Yevgeny Dushko so far, Russian Investigation Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin said on Sunday.
He confirmed that Committee detectives were investigating the case.
The police have apprehended the suspected killer of Dushko, Moscow regional police chief Nikolai Golovkin told reporters earlier in the day.
“The suspect is staying in the detention ward. He is ready to make a confession but insists he would do that in front of reporters. It seems he wants fame,” he said.
“We have plenty of evidence and I think we will report the solution of this crime soon. We have grounds to believe that the same man is responsible for some other grave crimes,” he said.
The police are also verifying the possible involvement of other persons in the crime.
Dushko, 35, who was elected as the head of the town administration in early April, was shot dead at 7:15 a.m. Moscow time on August 22 near his home. A man approached his car and fired through the car window several times. Dushko’s father brought his son to the hospital but he died of injuries.
