“Police officers of the MIA of Russia Administration for the Kursk Region detained a suspect in the murder of a couple who had come from St. Petersburg on a visit to a relative in the village of Shustovo, the Konyshevsky District of the Kursk Region,” said the official representative of the MIA of Russia Irina Volk.
It was found that at night the suspect broke into the house of a local resident and inflicted multiple injuries on her and her relatives: a 71-year-old man and his wife. As a result, the spouses died, and the landlady was taken to the hospital.
From the house, the suspect stole a bank card, a car and fled in the car belonging to the murdered couple.
“As a result of the operative-search activities, the police established the identity and location of the suspect, a 24-year-old local resident, and detained him in the Rostov Region. He hid the stolen car in a marshy area in the Sudjansky District,” added Irina Volk.
