The body of missing Russian lawmaker Mikhail Pakhomov was found in a cement-filled barrel.
According to the Associated Press, a former government official has been accused of ordering the lawmaker’s killing over $80 million worth of debt.
“It has been confirmed that the remains found in the area of the Obukhov village in the Noginsky district belong to Pakhomov. The nature of the wounds suggests that he was killed,” investigators said, reported The Moscow Times.
Pakhomov, 37, a member of the local legislature in Lipetsk, went missing last week, noted the AP. He was last seen Tuesday when he was pushed into a car outside a restaurant by three unidentified men.
