Beaten to death, probably by hired thugs, on July 19 not far from his Moscow home. He had written extensively on organized crime. He had also earned the wrath of government officials by criticizing politicians and exposing high-level corruption. He had been threatened before, and his wallet was left untouched in the attack that broke his skull. He was 26.
