Lawyer of man who murdered Starovoytova found shot dead

38-year-old lawyer Yevgeny Rusakov, who represented the murderer of State Duma deputy Galina Starovoytova, was found shot in the village of Vyritsa, Gatchina District of the Leningrad Region. As reported by RIA Novosti, this information was confirmed by a representative of the regional Investigative Committee.

The lawyer’s body with a gunshot wound in the chin was discovered on April 10 in the apartment in a building on Sosnovaya Street in the village of Vyritsa, Gatchina District. The deceased was lying on the couch, and in his hand there was a pistol of the Czech brand PODNIK. An empty case was found near the body.

The investigators found that on April 9 Rusakov, while in a state of intoxication, caused an accident on a Lexus when he approached his house. After that, the lawyer left the scene and went home.

Yevgeny Rusakov was the defender of Vitaly Akishin accused of the murder of State Duma deputy Galina Starovoytova. In June 2005, Akishin was found guilty and sentenced to 23.5 years in prison.

Galina Starovoytova was killed in the entrance hall of her house in St. Petersburg on November 20, 1998. Yuri Kolchin and former State Duma deputy Mikhail Glushchenko were also convicted in the case.
