MOSCOW, December 28 (RIA Novosti) – Giving “overkill” a literal meaning, a double murder suspect in central Russia committed suicide using three means to take his life at once, investigators said on Friday.
On Monday, the unnamed resident of the Korenevo village in Kursk Region was visiting an elderly married couple in the village, the local branch of the Investigative Committee said.
The couple was found stabbed to death while their guest had vanished from the scene, the committee said in a statement.
But on Wednesday, the 32-year-old man was found hanging from a branch in a nearby forest.
The corpse had both wrists slashed, and forensic examination found insecticide in its stomach, the report said.
The death was ruled suicide by hanging, investigators said. But the check into the double murder was ongoing.
