MOSCOW, May 13 (Itar-Tass) - The St. Petersburg drug police will give material and psychological aid to the drug police officer, whose wife and son were presumably killed by cadet of the Military Institute of the Interior Troops of the Russian Interior Ministry, the branch of the Russian drug watchdog (FSKN) in St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region told Itar-Tass on Monday.
“The FSKN branch will give material and psychological aid to its officer. He will be also given the aid with the funerals,” a representative of the regional FSKN branch said.
On May 12, the operative for particularly important cases of the regional FSKN branch came home in the morning, found the door in the flat open and found dead his 12-year-old son and his 38-year-old wife with numerous knife wounds, as well as the killed dog.
A fourth-year cadet of the Military Institute of the Interior Troops of the Russian Interior Ministry, Ilya Komarov, 20, who lived in the same entrance of a residential house one floor lower than the killed neighbours, was detained on the suspicion of murder of the family of the drug police officer. According to the preliminary reports, “The suspect went up on the ninth floor, where the family of the FSKN officer lived, under the fake pretext at about 23:00 Moscow time on May 11, and inflicted numerous knife wounds to the woman and her son.” “After that he stole the jewellery items and escaped,” the Investigative Committee said.
