MOSCOW, August 5. /TASS/. Russia’s top investigators began questioning Oleg Belov, detained on suspicion of slaughtering and dismembering his six children (all aged below six) after police discovered them on Tuesday at suspect’s home in the city of Nizhny Novgorod, a spokesman for the Russian Investigator’s Committee said.
Suspected "child-slaughterer" Belov, 51, was detained in the city of Kovrov of the Vladimir Region late on Tuesday night as a result of a special police operation, and was reported to have offered resistance during arrest.
"Oleg Belov, suspected of murdering six children, was detained as a result of joint efforts implied by officers from the Investigation’s Committee, the Interior Ministry and the Federal Security Service (FSB)," Vladimir Markin said. "He is currently subjected to investigative measures."
The suspect sustained a gunshot wound as is currently in intensive care.
"He has been placed in an intensive care ward after the surgery," a source in the hospital told TASS. "Perhaps he will be transferred soon. He is stable."
Investigators began searching for the suspect early on Tuesday, when they found the remains of the slaughtered children among with their stabbed mother in an ordinary apartment building in Nizhny Novgorod on Tuesday. The woman was reported to be pregnant at the time of her murder.
Later in the day, police discovered a body of a woman in a nearby Vladimir Region and she was later identified as the mother of the suspected serial children killer. The woman, bearing stab wounds, was discovered killed in the regional town of Gorokhovets.
According to earlier police reports, in 2007 Oleg Belov founded a religious community, "The Church of Seventh-Day Adventists", in Gorokhovets, where he was born.
