Moscow police are searching for a man who ordered a $16,000 watch from an online store then shot the delivery people at point-blank range and made off with the watch.
Passers-by discovered the bodies of Nadezhda Vodilovskaya, 50, and Valery Korolev, 34, around 1:15 p.m. Tuesday in a Nissan Primera parked outside an apartment building on Ketcherskaya Ulitsa, Life News reported. Both had been shot in the head.
The victims were found in the backseat and there was no damage to the vehicle's windows, so the gunman likely had been inside the car, police said.
"It's assumed that the 'customer' sat in the car Ч ostensibly to pay for the order Ч but instead took out a gun and opened fire," a law enforcement source told Life News.
The watch was valued at 470,000 rubles ($16,000).
Relatives said the victims were common-law husband and wife, and had lived together with the woman's 22-year-old son, Denis, in an apartment in eastern Moscow. They had been together for about 10 years, the woman's aunt said.
