The body of Sergei Skorochkin, an independent MP, was found in a forest near the village of Sarybyevo. He had been shot in the back of the head and was in handcuffs.
Skorochkin, 33, who also ran a private business, shocked parliament last summer when he shot and killed a man who allegedly opened fire on him. A passer-by was also killed. The independent NTV network reported yesterday that he had been in hiding in London until recently.Reuse content
