It is most likely that the killer, who fired at Iosif Ordzhonikidze, is already dead, the sources close to the investigation say. The executor of such a high-profile crime is commonly killed after the crime has been committed. Moreover, the assassination attempt has failed in the case with Mr. Ordzhonokidze, so the killer should have been punished for the failure, Interfax reports. The Moscow militia have already been asked to inform the investigators of all unidentified corpses found in Moscow and the Moscow region. In the meantime, Mr. Ordzhonikidze who was wounded yesterday, has regained consciousness, his condition remaining serious.
