"Free Pussy Riot" scrawled at Russian Murder scene
murder scene

A surreal and shocking twist/footnote to the ongoing Pussy Riot saga in Russia:

Moscow (CNN) -- Police in Russia are investigating the murder of two women found under a slogan backing the female punk rock band Pussy Riot, apparently written in the victims' blood, officials said Thursday.

The words "Free Pussy Riot" were scrawled in English on the apartment wall above the bodies of a 76-year-old woman and her 38-year-old daughter, investigators in Russia's Republic of Tatarstan said in a statement.

The two women, who shared a home, are thought to have died of numerous stab wounds between August 24 and 26 in the city of Kazan, the Tatarstan investigative committee said.

Their bodies were found Wednesday.

An investigation has been launched to uncover the circumstances of the crime, as well as those responsible and their motive, the statement said.

The murder inquiry comes two weeks after a court in Moscow sentenced three members of Pussy Riot to two years' imprisonment, a conviction and verdict that prompted international condemnation.

The three women were found guilty of hooliganism for performing a song critical of President Vladimir Putin in one of the Russian Orthodox Church's most important cathedrals.

Representatives of the jailed band members rejected the supposed link between Pussy Riot and the double murder in Kazan.

"I just found out about the incident in Kazan. Either it's a terrible provocation...Or psychiatry," Violetta Volkova, a lawyer for Pussy Riot, tweeted.

Those responsible "need to be found and punished," she said. - [CNN]

Meanwhile, three of Pussy Riot's members are serving a two year sentence for "hooliganism motivated by religious hatred" after they attended Moscow's Christ the Saviour Cathedral and staged a political protest against the election of Vladimir Putin. The other two have fled Russia.

Why was it written in English?

"Reported on CNN" so guaranteed the story has at least two major factual errors as well as a passage plagiarized from another source. Citing CNN as a credible source these days is a step down from citing a high school newspaper.

Good. Hopefully they'll execute the whole band and put this thing to rest.

I wouldn't be surprised if this was an inside job by Russian Propaganda to instill negative feelings about pussy riot.

I approve of this.

Whoever committed this crime wrote that in order to distract the police long enough for the trail to go cold. This has nothing to do with Pussy Riot except for the fact that the murders are using them to literally get away with murder.

Not Rocket Surgery you guys.

False flag operation to turn public support against pussy riot. Obvious.

Rocket science you fucking dope.

Don't doubt it was a false flag, sad that two presumably innocent women died over. Nothing in the story to indicate how or if these women had any connection to Pussy Riot.

Can the Killers be next on the Pussy Riot hit list? On the wall, write "because they sucked" in their blood.
