MOSCOW, August 31 (Itar-Tass) — A teacher of a Kazan higher education institute, Igor Danilevsky, who is detained on suspicion of the murder of two women, has confessed to the crime, a Russian Investigative Committee source told Itar-Tass.
The crime was shocking. The inscription "Free Pussy Riot", supposedly in blood of the victims, was left on a wall in their flat.
As is established, the inscription was left to deflect suspicions.
When questioned as a suspect, the man confessed it was him who committed the murder. He said he had studied together with the woman, the younger one, at an institute. As a former fellow student, he gained her confidence, and promising to marry her, he persuaded the woman to take a bank loan for him and used it to repay his numerous debts to banks.
The man promised they would together spend a holiday in Egypt. Later, saying he had no money, he proposed to go to Simferopol. When he came to the woman on August 22, he said the travel would be postponed to January. When the woman reproached him that he repeatedly lied, he took a knife and stabbed her several times. The woman's mother went out of the next room, and the man also stabbed the elderly woman with the knife several times, killing her. After that, he searched the flat to find the debt note confirming that he had taken money from the woman. He also stole about 100,000 roubles and two mobile telephones.
After that, he wrote "Free Pussy Riot" in blood of one of the victims on a wall in the kitchen to divert suspicions from himself and to leave it as a scene of a ritual murder. He laid the bodies to form the figure 69 and attempted to remove the traces of his presence, a police source in Tatarstan said.
Thoroughly searching the flat, he found his debt note and took it with him. He also took away the knife and 100,000 roubles and two mobile telephones.
The man was detained by criminal police of the republic's Interior Ministry on the night to August 31. He was found in a rented flat at Chuikov Street, where he resided together with his parents, hiding from numerous creditors. In the flat search, the telephones, the knife and the debt paper were found on the balcony.
The investigators from the very beginning supposed the inscription in blood was left to foul the trails and divert suspicions.
The convicted Pussy Riot members' attorneys flatly deny that the murder was committed by supporters of the punk group. "We have communicated with supporters of the group for half a year. There have been indignant people, but not to such an extent," lawyer Violetta Volkova told Itar-Tass. In her view, such a crime could be committed only by mentally abnormal people. In any case, they must be found and punished for what they did, she said.
