Police Suspect Russian Link in Tycoon Murder

Limassol crime police suspect Russian links in the murder of Russian tycoon Yuri Kyrilov, who was found strangled and dumped on an Ayios Tychonas beach on the 30th November.

"We are examining DNA from the scene that indicates the suspect was definitely Russian," said an investigator on the case speaking to CyprusNewsReport.com.

So far, no motive has been revealed, and if it is confirmed that the DNA belongs to a Russian criminal, an arrest warrant will be issued for his or her extradition from Russia.

61-year-old property developer Kyrilov was a permanent resident of Cyprus.
