MOSCOW, April 15 /TASS/. The body of Russia’s well-known documentary film director, Tamara Yakzhina, who has been missing since mid-March, was found in a forest near Moscow on Wednesday. A conflict with Yakzhina’s heavy smoking neighbor seems to be the motive behind her death.
"The woman constantly complained about a cigarette smoke coming from his apartment," a police source told TASS.
Yulia Ivanova, senior assistant to the head of the main investigative department of the Russian Investigation Committee, confirmed that the body of the 70-year-old film director had been dug out in a forest near Moscow.
According to investigators, a 51-year-old Muscovite, Igor Drozdov, met Tamara Yakzhina in the street and offered to give her a lift. "On the way, Yakzhina and the driver who had personal enmity to each other quarreled. The man killed the film director, took her body outside the territory of the Moscow region and buried it in the forest," law enforcers said.
According to the TASS source, Drozdov managed to play the role of an attesting witness during preliminary investigative actions at Yakzhina’s apartment. He was detained by court order the day before.
Tamara Yakzhina had gone missing before March 16. Investigators built various versions of her disappearance, including fraud with her apartment. Two suspects with documents for selling the film director’s apartment were detained.
Tamara Yakzhina worked at Central Television in Moscow for more than 20 years. She used to make art programs of various genres as well as author’s programs on culture.
