A well-known Russian scientist who was working on a vaccine for the Chinese coronavirus has fallen from a 14th story window of an apartment complex to his death in St. Petersburg, Russia, where he was visiting a friend. There were signs of a scuffle and a stab wound on the body.
Biologist Alexander ‘Sasha’ Kagansky, 45, best known for his work on fighting cancer, was reported to have fallen in his underwear from a 14th floor window of a high rise residential building.
He also had a stab wound on his body, according to Moskovsky Komsomolets (MK), reported Daily Mail.
Dr Kagansky – an assistant professor in Vladivostok – had been working in Edinburgh for 13 years until at least 2017. He was lately Director of the Centre for Genomic and Regenerative Medicine at Russia’s Far Eastern Federal University in Vladivostok, where he continued research collaboration with the Scottish university.
Rather than some nefarious act related to the COVID-19 vaccine development, Russians Tsarizm spoke with speculated the episode was most likely about money, a rare and highly-sought-after commodity in today’s Russian Federation.
“Someone wanted money from him. There are 100 reasons for a murder that have nothing to do with his professional activities,” said one Muscovite.
