35-year-old resident of Yekaterinburg Yevgeny Kryazhev was the victim of a miscarriage of justice and spent nine years in a mental hospital for the murder of a girl committed by another person. It is reported by RIA Novosti.
The man filed a lawsuit against the state for compensation for moral damages in connection with illegal criminal prosecution. He also intends to prosecute those involved in his criminal case: investigators, prosecutors and judges, says the head of the “Bureau of assistance to citizens” Yuri Potapenko.
In the fall of 2005 in Yekaterinburg Victory Park was found the body of a girl by the name of gimaeva. A suspect in her murder was 20-year-old Kryazhev, who lived near the crime scene.
According to Potapenko, because of mental problems young man confessed to the murder of Gameboy and showed investigators how he committed the crime. Kryazhev later recanted his testimony and declared an alibi, but it did not check. In 2006, he was found insane and sent for compulsory treatment in a psychiatric hospital.
Kryazhev recognized that it would be better served nine years in prison than in a mental hospital, where he had to use powerful drugs, which seriously undermined his health. And because of the stigma of the killer turned away from him, relatives and friends.
In 2015, he was released. And two years later he said they found the real killer, the prosecution in front of him apologized for the mistake and informed of his right to rehabilitation.
Gimaeva was the first victim of the Ural “maniac from the Ministry,” Alexei Falkina caught in 2017 on suspicion of the murder of Irina Vakhrusheva. During the investigation, the investigators ran his DNA with the genotype found on the body and clothes of Gameboy, and the results were identical. On account Falkina were a few victims — more than ten women and girls, of which three were brutally murdered. He was sentenced to life in prison.
As pointed out by Potapenko, if in 2005, law enforcement agencies conscientiously worked and solved the murder of Gameboy, the serial killer, was operating another 13 years, one would then stop.
