The Chairman of the Investigative Committee of Russia Alexander Ivanovich Bastrykin noted the effective investigative work of officers and forensic specialists of the Investigative Committee of Russia in the Leningrad Region with the participation of Forensic Support Department of the Main Forensics Department (Forensic Center of the Investigative Committee of Russia), which conducted a systematic analysis to solve the murder of 10-year-old girl in 2008, committed in the city of Kingisepp.
Investigators for 5 years continued meticulous work to identify the person involved in the crime. This criminal case was heard at a meeting of the permanent interdepartmental analytical investigative and operational group for the investigation of non-obvious grave and especially grave offenses. A systematic analysis of the contradictions in the testimony of persons involved in the case was conducted, a psychological portrait of each person who was related to the victim was drawn up, and a number of complex forensic examinations were conducted, which helped investigators in conjunction with other evidence to restore the picture of what happened and identify the person involved in the crime. He turned out to be a local resident, born in 1964, whose guilt was confirmed by the totality of the investigative and operational activities. He was charged with offenses provided for by Paragraphs C, J of Part 2 of Article 105 of the Criminal Code (murder of minor, coupled with rape), Paragraph C of Part 3 of Article 131 (as amended up to 01.09.2014, the rape of the victim, who had not reached the age of fourteen years). Upon investigative motion, the court ruled to put him in custody. The Chairman of the Investigative Committee of Russia instructed to encourage all employees of the Investigative Committee and the police, whose efforts promptly managed to solve this particularly grave crime.
