|FBI Releases Files Into Death Of Former Russian Press Minister Lesin|
The FBI has released dozens of pages from its investigation into the death of Mikhail Lesin, files that largely corroborate earlier police and other reports about the circumstances behind the former Russian press minister’s 2015 death.
The 56-page file, released by the U.S. law enforcement agency on January 26, includes heavily redacted copies of the medical and toxicology exam of Lesin’s body, as well as the investigation by forensic experts into the closed-circuit video footage of the hotel where he lived in his final days.
Lesin’s death was declared accidental, due to blunt force injuries to the neck, torso, and lower upper extremities, according to a final report released in October 2016 by the U.S. Attorney’s office for Washington and city police. Acute ethanol intoxication was a contributing factor.
A city police report released in December 2017 highlighted Lesin’s heavy drinking at Washington’s Four Seasons Hotel, and later at the Dupont Circle Hotel, where he was found dead on November 5, 2015, just a few blocks from the White House.
