When 20-year-old supermodel Ruslana Korshunova died in the middle of Water Street in Manhatten, the police ignored the improbability of the facts and rushed to a verdict of suicide.
Among many others, her mother did not believe that her daughter took her own life. She sought to have the case re-opened. To do that she needed to raise money. Someone she met or knew offered to set up a web site: https://www.ruslanamemorialfund.org/ It is a beautiful site, but apparently that is the only memorial funded by contributions. The site’s operator has become unavailable to Valentina Korshunova and has provided no accounting for the donations raised.
The question is whether the site operator is simply a thief, trying to enrich himself on someone else’s tragedy, or is he part of a larger conspiracy to prevent Ms. Korshunova from seeking justice.
I have corresponded with several people who read my blog and have an interest in the case. Some of that email correspondence was hacked. I would write something to one person and the next day a stranger would ask me a question about what I had discussed.
There are other indicators that someone with resources is trying to obstruct the pursuit of this crime, but I will withhold them for now. It is enough to say that nothing is finished until it is justly finished.
