The murder of Armenian Thai boxing champion Ashot Bolyan was ordered, said attorney Karen Nersisyan.
According to residents of the avenue, where Bolyan was killed, they did not hear the sound of the shot, KP reported.
This confirms that the offender reportedly used a pistol with a silencer, the attorney noted adding that for almost an hour, the murdered man lay on the sidewalk.
The body was found by a neighbor who called the police. The killer could not be detained.
“This is definitely a contract kill. Judging by the picture of the crime, a professional hitman worked,” he said.
According to the attorney, Ashot Bolyan is a respected athlete who achieved everything working very hard.
“He was raised by Armenian poor family. He was respected in the Armenian diaspora of Moscow. Now everyone is shocked by what happened,” the attorney added.
