MOSCOW, August 11. /TASS/. The adoptive father of a six-year old girl who was earlier declared missing has confessed to killing the child when he was drunk, a spokesperson for the Moscow Region’s Investigative Committee said on Thursday.
Veronika’s foster parents declared her missing on August 6. Police and volunteers had been combing through the neighborhood of the town of Ozery, some 100 km to the south of Moscow, for several days in search for the child.
Her foster parents were later detained on suspicion of the girl’s murder and told the police that Veronika had drowned in the bathtub in April and they decided to burn her body to conceal the child’s death.
According to the Investigative Committee, her father confessed that "he had killed the six-year old girl in April when he was drunk."
He incinerated the body and then hid the remains in several townships with the help of his wife, the committee’s spokesperson said.
She added that the girl’s adoptive mother and grandmother confirmed the confession and were also taken to custody.
According to the Russian Education Ministry, Veronika was adopted in 2010 and the child welfare organizations had checked up on her living conditions every year and found no violations of the girl’s rights, or threats to her life or health.
