Mystery death of former Putin aide

Mystery around the death of a former aide to Russia’s president Vladimir Putin is causing tension between Russia and the US. Last fall, Mikhail Lesin reportedly died of a heart attack at a hotel in Washington, D.C. Last week, the coroner’s report said it was actually blunt force trauma–to his head, neck, shoulders, arms, legs, and upper and lower torso.

In a strange twist, somebody used Lesin’s passport to fly out of the United States in December–40 days after he died!
