MOSCOW, September 9 (Itar-Tass) —— The investigators who have launched an inquiry over the death of popular actor Alexander Belyavsky believe that it was suicide.
A source at the Russian Investigative Committee told Itar-Tass that it was preliminary established Belyavsky committed suicide, falling from a window of the staircase between the fifth and the sixth floors of the building where he lived. The actor died at the site. No signs of violent death were found.
Belyavsky's walking stick was found at the staircase. There were no signs of a fight. No note was left either. The actor some years ago had a stroke, and he had poor eyesight after that. So, he could not write.
The version of suicide is also indirectly confirmed by the fact that the actor lived on the third floor, but he fell from the fifth floor.
His body was found near the apartment building where he lived at Bolshoi Tishinsky Side Street in central Moscow on Saturday, September 8, at about 13:00.
A police source said that it was not ruled out that the actor had a heart attack, opened the window to breathe fresh air, but did not keep his balance and fell down.
In 2003, Belyavsky had a severe stroke and was disabled after that.
He was born in Moscow on May 6, 1932. Belyavsky was a very popular actor. In particular, people remember his role in Stanislav Govorukhin's film "the Meeting Place cannot be Changed", in which the actor played the role of a handsome bandit named Fox.
