Kurgan police close investigation of court grenade bombing after suspect's death
The criminal case was terminated in connection with the death of the suspect," Olesya Dergounova, the senior assistant investigator of the Sverdlovsk regional police, said, according to ITAR-TASS. "It was investigated under three articles of the criminal code: attempt on the life of a law enforcement officer, attempted murder of two persons committed in a socially dangerous way and arms trafficking."
The explosion occurred during the afternoon of November 1, 2013, when suspect Mikhail Vdovin allegedly threw three grenades into the Kurgan courthouse, killing a bailiff and Yekaterinburg resident and injuring a police officer. Officers detained Vdovin after he tried to break into the courthouse prior to the detonation of the grenades.
The bailiff was posthumously awarded the Order of Courage medal, and plaques have been installed in the courthouse honoring those who were injured or killed during the explosion, ITAR-TASS reports.
