ASTRAKHAN, February 10 (Itar-Tass) — Police are probing into the death of three elderly women at a health-improvement centre in the Astrakhan region, local police told Itar-Tass on Friday.
The dead bodies of the three women, born in 1935, 1938 and 1946, were found in one of the rooms of the health-improvement centre for the disabled and the elderly in the settlement of Oranzherei early on Thursday. “No signs of violence were traced. Police thinks the three women died from poisoning. The exact cause of death will be established in a forensic examination,” police said.
