NHL Player Roman Lyashenko Commits Suicide in Turkey Hotel

Roman wrote a suicide note, in which he said he had an incurable disease

More information is coming about the death of the Russian National Hockey League player Roman Lyashenko, although the situation still remains not clear. Associated Press reported with reference to Turkish mass media outlets, Roman Lyashenko, who had died in Turkey under obscure circumstances, did not have AIDS or any other disease. A doctor of the hospital, where Roman's body was taken to, said that neither AIDS, nor any other disease was found as a result of the medical examination. Thus, the version, which said that Lyashenko committed suicide over a severe disease, was not confirmed.

Yet, Roman Lyashenko wrote a suicide note - the Turkish police confirmed that fact. In the note, Roman apologized for killing himself and confessed having an incurable illness. Yury Koritsky, Russian diplomat in Antalya, said, the precise text of the note had not been made public yet. However, the Turkish police has already announced that New York Rangers forward Roman Lyashenko had committed suicide. The medical examination of the body showed, the hockey player had his wrists cut. Police officers say, Roman apparently tried to cut his wrists before hanging himself by a belt in the bathroom at a beach resort in Antalya. He was there on vacation with his family.

Roman Lyashenko was found hanging in his hotel room in the morning of July 6th. His body is to be delivered to Russia tomorrow.

"Yaroslavl-based hockey club Lokomotiv was deeply saddened with Lyashenko's tragedy. That guy has always been the pride of the club, because he combined the remarkable hockey talent, the worldly wisdom and the immaculate decency," the Yaroslavl newspaper Zolotoye Koltso wrote. Lokomotiv's General Manager Yury Lukin said, the site of Roman's burial would be determined by his relatives. In addition to it, the club will render the necessary financial help to Roman's family. The Yaroslavl team still can not believe what has happened to Roman Lyashenko.
