A Russian meat magnate has been killed with a crossbow in an outdoor sauna on his estate. This is reported by the Russian Investigation Committee, comparable to the American police service FBI.

The estate of businessman Vladimir Marugov is located about 40 kilometers outside Moscow. Marugov and his partner were there in an outdoor sauna when they were attacked, allegedly by masked men.

The perpetrators would have tied the two and asked for money. The woman managed to free herself and alert the police.

Officers found Marugov dead in the sauna, along with the crossbow he was shot with. The perpetrators took off in a car, which was later found in a village.

Suspect from Kazakhstan arrested

The newspaper Komsomolskaja Pravda reports on the basis of a police source that the woman is on an “extensive suspect list”. According to, a suspect has been arrested. It would be Aleksandr Mavridi (49) from Kazakhstan. He allegedly opposed his arrest and refused to make a statement.

“Much is still unclear about the circumstances,” says correspondent David Jan Godfroid. “It could be a business dispute. They are sometimes quite violently resolved in Russia. It is now much less than in the 1990s, but it has never been gone.”

Marugov, known as the Sausage King, owned some of Russia’s largest meat processing plants. Last year he came into conflict with his ex-wife, from whom he had been divorced for several years. The fight was about assets and received a lot of publicity, The Moscow Times reports.
