Russian Boris Berezovsky, aged 67, was found dead in his home in Berkshire at the weekend, and police have commented that there was no evidence to state a third party was involved.
Now, there will be an investigation into his death. Reportedly, Mr. Berezovsky was found by a member of his staff on Saturday having not been spotted since late on Friday night.
Officers have explained that they are patching information together to work out what may have happened, in particular by speaking to Mr. Berezovsky’s loved ones.
From Thames Valley Police, Detective Chief Inspector Kevin Brown has said: “It would be wrong to speculate on the cause of death until the post-mortem has been carried out. We do not have any evidence at this stage to suggest third-party involvement.”
The Chief added: “We are at the early stages of the investigation and we are retaining an open mind as we progress.”
It is believed that a post-mortem will take place early this week.
It is understood the businessman faced debts from a number of differing events that took place during his life.
Mr. Berezovsky was given asylum in Britain a decade ago after emigrating here at the turn of the millennium. The reason for Mr. Berezovsky fleeing to the UK relates to incidents that tied him to the President of Russia.
