The main version of State Duma Deputy Sergey Yushenkov's murder was his State Duma work, Moscow Prosecutor Mikhail Avdyukov told journalists at the murder site on Thursday. 'However, at the same time, it is impossible to exclude other versions. For example, personal, but that is unlikely because Yushenkov was a good family man,' said Avdyukov. He also said that the murder occurred at approximately 6:42 p.m. Moscow time. Yushenkov stepped out of his car and walked toward the entrance of his home. At that time the suspect ran toward him and shot him several times with a pistol. Avdyukov said that they found four shell cases left by the killer at the murder site. 'We already have the necessary investigative material, but we can not disclose it for the time being,' said Avdyukov.
Head of the Moscow Department of Internal Affairs Vladimir Pronin said that Yushenkov was a public figure and openly expressed his views. 'Therefore the main version for his murder is his State Duma work,' he said. 'At the same time, it is too early to speak more concretely,' said Pronin.
