Vladimir Marugov Biography
Vladimir Marugov is a Russian sausage king’ who was shot with a crossbow and tortured to death while he was relaxing in a sauna with his girlfriend on Monday, November 2nd. He was the owner of the ‘Ozyorsky sausages’ and ‘Meat Empire’ sausage factories and the meat-packing empire earned him the nickname of “The Sausage King.”
Vladimir Marugov was staying with his girlfriend Sabina Gaziyeva
Vladimir was killed on Monday on a family estate 25 miles west of Moscow where he was staying with Sabina Gaziyeva, 36. The couple were tied up by the assailants who were demanding money before Sabina escaped through a window and called police from a neighbouring house.
The sausage tsar was tortured ‘for an hour’ after being shot as his assailants sought to extract information from him, say reports. When police arrived at the scene he had died from blood loss, with visible wounds on his back and shoulder.
Police retrieved a silver Citroen with a crossbow but the assailants made away by foot in the forest. The Investigative Committee said the intruders had demanded that Marugov hand over cash kept at his home.
The getaway car was found in a village in the suburbs of Istra, a town west of Moscow where affluent Russians have country homes known as dachas and like to spend the weekends. Two suspects were later detained and the Russian Investigative Committee is leading a murder probe.
