MOSCOW, August 10 (Itar-Tass) —— The Russian Investigation Committee does not confirm that the body found in the Tver region might belong to the suspected assailant of the house of singer Mikhail Krug.
A police source told Itar-Tass earlier that the suspect’s body was found near a highway. “According to the preliminary information, the man born in 1973 was shot dead,” he said.
Krug (Vorobyov) was killed in his house in Mamulino, Tver region, early in the morning on July 1, 2012.
“Media reports quoting police sources, who said that the remains of a person allegedly involved in the murder of musician Mikhail Krug were found in the Tver region, were incorrect. The skeleton of an unknown person was found in Tver today. He died over ten years ago. Detectives of the Tver regional department of the Russian Investigation Committee have ordered forensic and DNA tests in order to identify the man and to find out the cause of his death,” it said.
Statements from unverified sources are premature; they disagree with the interest of investigation, the Committee said.
It called attention of journalists and the general public to the fact that reliable information with regard to criminal cases investigated by bodies of the Russian Investigation Committee could come only from official sources of the Committee. The premature and unverified reports will be investigated, it said.
