Masked assailants kill Russia’s ‘Sausage King’ with a crossbow

Masked assailants killed a Russian businessman dubbed the “Sausage King” with a crossbow at his country residence in the Moscow region, Russia’s Investigative Committee and state media reported.

The victim, who owns large meat-processing plants, was in a sauna with his wife when the attack happened, the Investigative Committee said.

State media identified him as Vladimir Marugov, citing his ex-wife Tatyana Marugova, who confirmed his death.




“Several masked men entered the bathhouse … tied up the owner of the house and his spouse, and then demanded money,” the Investigative Committee’s statement said.

Marugov’s wife managed to escape through a window and call police, who found her husband dead at the scene along with the crossbow used to shoot him, investigators said.

The Investigative Committee has launched a criminal investigation, according to the statement published on its official website.



Late Monday, state-run news agency RIA Novosti reported that one suspect had been detained for questioning.
