Russian Tycoon, Boris Berezovsky’s Death Still a Mystery

Roman Abramovitch Takes The Stand As Boris Berezovsky Sues Him For Billions

 

Russian billionaire Boris Berezovsky was found hanged, but there are questions of whether it was suicide or foul play, according to the Nation. Known as Russia’s richest man, he died penniless and was an outspoken critic of Vladimir Putin. He was found dead by his wife in Ascot, Berkshire U.K. His family do not believe he committed suicide. He left no will and his estate was worth nothing, although others say his financial problems and depression make suicide a likely explanation.

His daughter, Elizaveta Berezovskaya, claimed a two day inquest in Windsor, and believes the Russian government might have had a hand in his death. However, he was heard to have spoken of suicide prior to his death. The Berkshire coroner said there was “compelling evidence” of suicide, given his difficulties.
