Lukoil executive’s daughter found dead near Moscow

The daughter of an executive at Russia’s second largest oil producer has been found dead in the Moscow region, a police source said on Tuesday.

He said the body of Viktoria Teslyuk, daughter of Robert Teslyuk, was found by the roadside near the town of Taldom, about 100 km north of Moscow “when the snow melted.”

The source was unable to offer an explanation for the death of the 16-year-old girl, who was reported missing on March 26.

The report was confirmed by a source within Robert Teslyuk’s inner circle but there has been no official comment from police or Lukoil.

Robert Teslyuk is general director of the Arman oil producing company, a joint venture of Lukoil, Shell and Sinopec, based in Kazakhstan.

The kidnapping of the son of Russian software tycoon Yevgeny Kaspersky made world headlines last month. The 20-year-old heir to Kaspersky’s estimated $800 million wealth was released safely in a police sting operation after being held for ransom for a week.
