The essence of the matter
According to the investigation, on June 30, 2021, Berezhnoy met an unfamiliar girl on the site of the first floor of a residential building on Sudostroiteley Street in Tyumen.
“Fraudily, he lured her to his apartment rented in the same house, where he committed the murder of a child.
Berezhnoy packed the body of the victim and kept it in his apartment. All this time, volunteers were looking for the child, and local authorities announced a reward for information about the girl. At the end of August, the girl’s body was found in a hard-to-reach place on the shore of the lake, ”TASS reminds.
Berezhnoy claimed that he confessed under alleged torture. He was denied a corresponding claim, and the torture case was never initiated.
“Each of the lawyers in the case complained of pressure and numerous violations, including the lack of access to evidence and examinations. One defender had to leave Russia because of threats,” the NashGorod portal notes.
“Wrong one taken?”
The publication also cites the opinion of some experts who have been dealing with the cases of missing children in Tyumen since 1997. Among them is SK consultant Dmitry Kiryukhin, who suggested that Berezhnoy could not have been involved in the murder of the girl.
Experts believe that a serial maniac is operating in the city. In favor of this version, the resemblance of the last victim to other previously missing girls played.

In turn, the representative of the father of the murdered girl, Marina Kozyr, told Gazeta that he did not agree with the verdict and doubted Berezhny’s guilt. According to her, the father of the deceased child was not involved as the injured party in the case.
“He does not believe the investigation that Berezhnoy is guilty in view of the fact that when they inspected the apartment, there were volunteers, police officers and service dogs. Accordingly, at that time the corpse could have been discovered. The child’s body was not found.
And he said: I want to get acquainted with all the materials of the case in order to understand all justice. He doesn’t want a person to be condemned who didn’t do it.
He suggests that Berezhnoy became a suspect because he had the very first room from the stairs, where the girl lost her phone on the day she went missing. She came home and said: Dad, I lost my phone. Her father scolded her a little and went and got her candy. Then the child disappeared. Then they found the phone, ”said Kozyr.
