Russian investigative journalist Maxim Borodin, who wrote about the deaths of mercenaries in Syria, died in a hospital after falling from his fifth-floor flat, and already those closest to him believe a crime occurred.
Neighbors in Yekaterinburg found Borodin badly injured and he was taken to a hospital. He later died from his injuries.
The BBC reports:
“Local officials said no suicide note was found but the incident was unlikely to be of a criminal nature. However, a friend revealed Borodin had said his flat had been surrounded by security men a day earlier. Vyacheslav Bashkov described Borodin as a ‘principled, honest journalist’ and said Borodin had contacted him at five o’clock in the morning on April 11th saying there was ‘someone with a weapon on his balcony and people in camouflage and masks on the staircase landing’.”
