The Moscow head of an international advertising company was found dead in his apartment following an apparent suicide, investigators said Sunday.
Oleg Khripunov, the 52-year-old chief of Out There Media's Russian office, was discovered Saturday with a gunshot to his head in his home on Ulitsa Kosygina in southwestern Moscow, Interfax reported.
Two rifles — a Tigr and a Saiga — were found nearby. A suicide note was also discovered, leading investigators to believe Khripunov had killed himself, the Investigative Committee said in a statement. The committee did not disclose the contents of the note.
Out There Media specializes in mobile advertising. It is headquartered in Vienna, Austria, and has offices in several countries.
