Eerily, the killers were captured on apparently placed hidden camera. What we see is one of the men, Philip Nechayev, facing the police, and denying that he and the other killer were involved. Philip is being pressured into providing information that can help convict and punish the pair of other men that both sides agree were directly involved. Philip makes it sound like he was entirely in the dark about this whole thing but provides police investigating the attack with a list of the participants in the plot, including names, addresses, social security numbers, phone numbers, bank accounts and driver's licences of the killers.
The theory is that a few weeks before the murder, the killer had run into one of the defendants while loitering in a public square. The killer's ex-girlfriend led the cops to the location of the defendants. The "three guys" were all related to each other and had some sort of bond. The killer, Philip, on the other hand, had no money or connection to the defendants. Quick to confront the victim, they beat and tortured him, until they got what they wanted. Before committing suicide later, the killers uploaded a "snuff film" on the Internet. The video was immediately deleted. It is estimated that the murders took a day and a half. The victim, Alexei Vyacheslavsky, got out of the hospital, but wound up dying a few days later.
According to Igor Suprunyuk, the killers found the victim in a nearby park and stabbed him first, then wrapped him in a quilt and decapitated him. The victim had no connection to them. The fact that the victim was found dead in the park, without cause, and the fact that the killers had deleted a video of the crime, led to the conviction of the three men for the murder.
The three men who lived in an apartment on the first floor were charged on the day of the murder, with a term of 7 years in prison for each. In fact, another defendant, Philip Nechayev, testified that he had been ordered to participate in the murder, and was one of the perpetrators in the video. d2c66b5586
