Crimean Ambulance Depot Shooter Found Dead

Local resident Nebiyev, 55, was suspected of opening fire at medics at an ambulance depot in Simferopol late last month.

The body of a man suspected of killing two medics at an ambulance depot in Crimea was found Saturday on the outskirts of Simferopol in a severely disfigured state, the peninsula's top prosecutor told state-run news agency RIA Novosti on Saturday.

Bekir Nebiyev's mangled body had been attacked by wild animals, Prosecutor General Natalya Poklonskaya was cited as saying.

Bullet damage to a piece of Nebiyev's clothing and a shotgun found at the scene suggested the cause of death had been suicide, the regional branch of the Investigative Committee said Saturday in an online statement.
