An autopsy has established that the cause of death of self-exiled Russian businessman Boris Berezovsky was consistent with hanging, but no signs of violent death were found, police said on Tuesday, RIA Novosti reports.
“The results of the post-mortem examination, carried out by a Home Office pathologist, have found the cause of death is consistent with hanging. The pathologist has found nothing to indicate a violent struggle,” a statement by the Thames Valley Police reads.
“Further tests will now be carried out, including toxicology and histology examinations, the results of which are likely to take several weeks.”
Since 2000, the Russian businessman had resided in the United Kingdom, where he died on Saturday at the age of 67.
