The investigators have conducted 7 examinations of crime scenes; run forensic medical and psychological inquiries into the victims and a psychiatric evaluation of the accused. The digital data carriers confiscated during the searches were examined by a specialist.

The man has confessed to the most of the crimes and has been remanded in custody pending trial. He has been charged with all crimes revealed so far, which are 59 counts of crimes under Article 132 of the RF Penal Code (sexual abuse) and Article 242.2 (using a minor to produce pornographic materials and objects).

The police have received orders to conduct some additional operations on the accused to find out if there were other similar crimes and to check if he was involved in the unsolved crimes. At the same time an investigator of the regional office of the Investigative Committee has filed a complaint with the Zhigulyovsk police department on improper discharge of duties by the officials of juvenile offices due to the lack of preventive measures taken.
