MOSCOW. May 6 (Interfax) - Spokesperson for the Moscow region branch of the Russian Investigative Committee Olga Vrady has confirmed the death of Alltech Group president Dmitry Bosov in the Moscow region.

"Investigators of the investigative department in the town of Odintsovo have opened an inquiry into the death of a 52-year-old local resident," Vrady told Interfax on Wednesday in reply to a question about Bosov's death.

The man's dead body with a gunshot wound to the head was found by his relatives near a house in the village of Usovo, she said.

"A Glock 19 Gen 4 pistol was found near the body," Vrady said.

Investigators are currently working at the site, she said. The scene is being examined, relatives are being interviewed, and circumstances and reasons of the incident are being established.

A source told Interfax that Bosov was spending the May holidays in his house in the village of Usovo in the Odintsovo district.

"The businessman stopped answering phone calls and messages late on May 5. The businessman's wife came to Usovo. She found her husband dead - lying in one of the building's wings with a pistol in his hand," the source said. 

RBC said earlier, citing two acquaintances of Bosov, that Bosov committed suicide in his mansion in the village of Usovo in the Moscow region.
