15 deaths linked to Rus­sian killers

The Sunday Post (Newcastle) - - NEWS -

Rus­sian as­sas­sins have been linked to the deaths of 15 men on Bri­tish soil. The vic­tims in­clude a Scot­tish ty­coon, a mem­ber of staff at GCHQ and the ex-hus­band of TV pre­sen­ter Trinny Woodall. No ar­rests have been made over any of the deaths. The fam­ily of Dundee-born Scot Young, who plunged from the bal­cony of his apart­ment and was im­paled on rail­ings in 2014, are con­vinced he was mur­dered. Rus­sian de­fec­tor Alexan­der Litvi­nenko be­came one of the most high-pro­file vic­tims when he died in Lon­don in 2006 af­ter drink­ing a cup of poi­soned tea. The death of Gareth Williams, a GCHQ em­ployee on sec­ond­ment to MI6, made head­lines around the world when he was found dead in 2010. The orig­i­nal claims that 14 peo­ple may have been killed in the UK by Krem­lin hit­men were made af­ter an in­ves­ti­ga­tion last year. Since then there has been a 15th sus­pi­cious death.
