Surveillance Video Shows Suspect in Nemtsov's Murder Near Nemtsov's Home in October 2014

Moskovsky Komsomolets, a newspaper and online news site that tends to support the Kremlin, has published two photographs alleged to be from surveillance cameras showing the getaway car in the murder of opposition leader Boris Nemtsov.

MK does not say how they have obtained the photos, or from whom..

The stills taken from footage that has not been published show the silver ZAZ Chance, a Ukrainian-made car which has been described as a knock-off of a Chevrolet Lanos.

The stills are said to be taken from the time of the murder, with Zaur Dadayev, the chief suspect, in the front seat next to the driver.



Up until now, the only footage of the scene of the crime which has been published comes from the TV Tsentr weather camera, owned by the city of Moscow, and some brief clips of the getaway car, published by REN-TV.

MK also reported that other new information evidently leaked from the investigation says there is also footage taken from surveillance cameras on Malaya Ordnynka Street, where Nemtsov lived, months before his murder.

MK says the "gangsters" purchased the car in September 2014, then were caught on surveillance tape in October 2014 near Nemtsov's home, which is not far from the Bolshoi Moskvoretsky Bridge where he was shot dead.

That means the whole theory of the case involving Dadayev is unravelling. Says MK:

What is this, a coincidence? After all, if we are to suppose that the suspect had already been tailing the politician [Nemtsov], then the chief motive falls apart. Last year [in October 2014], the shooting at the Charlie Hebdo editorial offices hadn't taken place yet, nor Nemtsov's statements which supposedly angered Muslims...That means there was nothing to kill him over -- at least, according to the logic of Zaur Dadayev.

The suspects also appear to have been careless, since they parked the car in the neighborhood of Zamoskvorechye, but never once paid for parking tickets -- or speeding tickets, which they also racked up, for a total of 12,000 rubles ($193).
