Russian politician dies in apparent murder-suicide as husband raped her, detonated hand grenade
The jealous husband of a young Russian lawmaker killed himself and his wife after detonating a hand grenade as he forced her to have sex in the backseat of their car Thursday, according to local reports.
The bodies of Oksana Bobrovsky, 30, and her husband, Nikita Bobrovsky, 28, were found half-naked inside an SUV outside an apartment building in Novosibirsk home, located 1,700 miles east of Moscow.
Novosibirsk Mayor Anatoly Lokot described the apparent murder-suicide as a “family drama,” but it’s unclear what sparked the husband’s jealousy.
The small blast was loud enough to alert neighbors of the gruesome mess inside the couple’s Toyota RAV 4 just before midnight. Investigators laid one of the bodies — naked from the waist down — on the snowy street outside the vehicle, photos show.
