Albanian prosecutors said they have launched an investigation into the murder of four Russian tourists in a local beach resort last month.
On October 15, four Russians-a married couple, their daughter and son-in-law-were found dead in a hotel sauna in the village of Qerret, 50 kilometers (30 miles) west of the capital Tirana.
The first signs were that they had died of suffocation, but the circumstances were unknown and no official coroner’s report had been made public.
Prosecutors said in a statement on Thursday that they had registered the case as “other eligible murders,” adding that they were evaluating the evidence and evidence in the witness’s testimony. They did not provide any further details.
The body was transported back to Russia a week after it was found. The Russian Embassy in Rana has stated that it will examine the remains to “find out the cause of their death.”
Russian tourists are between 31 and 60 years old, and they are part of a group staying in this five-star resort for a week.
Tourism is now a major industry in Albania, a small country in the western Balkans with 300 miles of coastline.
