UK: Police launch murder probe as Russian businessman Glushkov found dead

United Kingdom, New Malden
March 16, 2018 at 21:20 GMT -00:00 · Published

The media gathered outside the home of Nikolai Glushkov in New Malden, southwest London, on Friday night, after investigators reported that the death of the Russian businessman, who was found dead on Monday, is believed to be the result of murder. Police investigators stated earlier on Friday that they believed Glushkov was strangled with a dog leash and that a post-mortem had reported the cause of his death as 'compression to the neck.'Glushkov's case is of particular interest to the media, as it comes shortly after former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal's exposure to a nerve agent in the English town of Salisbury, resulting in the hospitalisation of him and his daughter Yulia. However, the London Metropolitan Police have maintained that, until now, there is no suggested link between Glushkov's death and the Skripal case.
