Yelena Skoryatina, a russian, was brutally murdered during a company party by Denis Saunin, the security guard of the factory she works in. His brother helped him with the body. She joked and told the ex-army guard that she was a an ex-Chechen sniper.
Yelena stated that the Chechen warlords Maskhadov and Basayev were good people fighting for their freedom. Saunin later confessed: "The light dimmed in my eyes as she said this and I thought — I must avenge them (our boys).."
It appears the ex-soldier gave her the 'sniper treatment' and killed her in a method reserved for enemy snipers. The investigator later concluded that Yelena was short-sighted since birth and could not have been a sniper.
