The Adygea Republican Investigations Directorate of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation has pressed charges against a 47-year-old man for the murder of a 16-year-old girl and a robbery attack (Part 2 of Article 105, Part 4 of Article 162 of the Criminal Code of Russia). At a request of the investigation, he was subjected to preventive detention.
As it was previously reported, on May 24, 2019, at about 11:10 AM the girl exited from a lyceum in Maikop and did not return home. During the preliminary investigation, it was established that the minor did not have any reasons to disappear for a long time without reporting her location; therefore, the preliminary investigation bodies reviewed the commission of a crime against the 16-year-old girl as the main version of her disappearance.
While working through a big volume of billing information of previously convicted citizens and detailing their phone calls, the investigator and forensic specialists of the Adygea Republican Investigations Directorate identified the 47-year-old local citizen, previously convicted for commission of an offense similar to the crime committed against the 16-year-old girl.
Upon instruction from the investigative bodies, the criminal investigation officers of the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs over the Republic of Adygea organized search activities aimed to check the alibi and social circle of the man; he was detained after all the required data had been collected.
Consequently, due to the well-planned actions of the investigators and operative officers, the man started to testify under the pressure of evidence. He reported that on May 24, 2019, being on the right shore of the Belaya River of Maikop city of the Adygea Republic, he committed the robbery attack against the girl and murdered her. During the verification of testimony on site, he showed the burial place of the girl. As a result of well-coordinated joint work of forensics officers of the Adygea Republican Investigations Directorate of the Investigative Committee of Russia, Republican units of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, EMERCOM, the National Guard, and Lisa Alert volunteers, the injured body of the girl was found.
Investigative actions are being carried out in order to prove the evidence.
