Pussy Riot slogan was a decoy

A college teacher who killed two women in their Moscow apartment has admitted scrawling “Free Pussy Riot” in blood on a wall at the scene to mislead investigators.

The bodies were found in the building on Wednesday. The victims were a former classmate of the suspect and her mother.

The 38 year-old man in custody told police he wrote the slogan on the wall to draw attention away from himself and make it look like a ritual killing.

At first, a Russian Orthodox Church official said the punk group now had blood on their hands.

But the police report said the crime was not inspired by the band nor its protest against Vladimir Putin in a Moscow cathedral.
