Investigators decline to confirm reports of infant deaths in Berezovsky
"The Investigative Committee department for the Sverdlovsk region is continuing the investigation into a criminal case opened May 1997 over the murder of an infant," a police spokesperson said, according to ITAR-TASS.
Officials had suspended investigations into the 1997 infanticide case due to an inability to identify a suspect. Later on, a 56-year-old suspect was named, Itar-Tass reports.
While Thursday's discovery of what could be five additional victims buried in 1982, 1986, 1992, 1994 and 1997 was initially reported by the Sverdlovsk police press service, authorities have since refused to comment any further as to whether there is a connection to the ongoing 1997 infanticide investigation, according to ITAR-TASS.
