Investigators of the case of murder of Andrei Kozlov are trying to determine the set of people who may be involved in this crime
Investigators of the case of murder of First Deputy Chairman of the Central Bank of Russia (CBR) Andrei Kozlov are trying to determine the set of people who may be involved in this crime. However, an informed source in the investigation team told Itar-Tass, “There have been no detained and even specific suspects so far.” “I information is currently being collected that will help the investigation and the best forces of the criminal investigation police department and units for fighting organised crime have been attracted to the solution of this crime,” the source pointed out. According to him, police are “very thoroughly checking all relations, contacts and acquaintances of Kozlov and trying to find out if any threats have been issued against him and if he had any conflicts with business representatives recently.” Law enforces believe that the murder had been thoroughly planned in advance and its preparation took at lest several months. “It is not ruled out that the criminals had an informer in the official’s entourage, because they had exact information on the schedule of his movements and knew exactly that he would arrive to the Spartak sports complex in the evening,” said the source. “Corporate football matches were held there every Wednesday, but Kozlov very rarely attended them,” he noted. In the words of the police official, “The investigators, have already collected a number of pieces of evidence, but failed to establish the identities of the assassins.” It is also still unknown how the killers escaped from the crime scene – they could use a car or go by metro. The investigation team has also failed so far to compose identikits or composite facial images of the suspects. However, witnesses have been found who say that there were two killers but could not describe them as “failed to discern them due as it was dark.” The investigators are currently look forward to receiving the results of expert examinations of the murder weapons that will completed in the coming days. The weapons may provide some clues that will help to track down the suspects. “Specialists have drawn attention to the fact that the weapons used by the killers were tear-gas pistols remodelled for firing combat cartridges. It is noteworthy that one of the pistols broke down during firing - its silencer fell off,” said the source. “It is unclear why the criminals did not use a Makarov pistol with silencer that is usually used in contract murders.” According to the Prosecutor General’s Office, one of the versions of the assassination of Kozlov is linked with his professional activities. However, the investigators say, “All versions will be thoroughly studied – staring from a household to professional one.”
