“Appeal for information and footage in New Malden murder
News Mar 20, 2018 16:27 GMT
Detectives investigating the murder of 68-year-old Russian businessman Nikolay Glushkov, are appealing for any footage or images that motorists or cyclists may have captured in Clarence Avenue on Sunday, 11 March or Monday, 12 March.
Mr Glushkov was found dead in his home in Clarence Avenue, New Malden on Monday, 12 March. A murder investigation was launched on Friday, 16 March following the result of a post-mortem examination, which gave the cause of death as compression to the neck.
The investigation team is appealing for any motorists or cyclists who were in Clarence Avenue on either Sunday, 11 March or Monday, 12 March to send in any images or video that they may have captured in the road on dash-cams or head-cams. Images and footage can be sent to the investigation team via: http://ukpoliceimageappeal.co.uk
Detectives are retaining an open mind and are also appealing for anyone with information that could assist the investigation into Mr Glushkov’s murder to contact them in confidence on 0800 789 321.
Officers continue to appeal for anyone who may have seen or heard anything suspicious at or near his home in Clarence Avenue, New Malden between Sunday, 11 March and Monday, 12 March to contact them.
From the outset, the investigation has been led by officers from the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command and as a precaution, the Command is retaining primacy for the investigation because of the associations Mr Glushkov is believed to have had.
Mr Glushkov’s family has been informed and is being supported by family liaison officers at this difficult time.
Police were called by London Ambulance Service at 22:46hrs on Monday, 12 March, after Mr Glushkov was found dead at his home in Clarence Avenue, New Malden.
Officers attended and an investigation was launched into his death, which at that stage was treated as unexplained.
A special post mortem began on Thursday, 15 March and we received the pathologist report on Friday, 16 March, which gave the cause of death as compression to the neck.
Mr Glushkov, a retired financial director, was a Russian national who had lived at that address for two years.
At this stage there is nothing to suggest any link to the attempted murders in Salisbury, nor any evidence that he was poisoned.
There are no wider public health concerns in relation to this investigation. No arrests. Enquiries continue.” http://news.met.police.uk/news/appeal-for-information-and-footage-in-new-malden-murder-299332 (Emphasis our own.)

“Nikolay Alekseevich Glushkov (Russian: Николай Алексеевич Глушков; 24 December 1949 – 12 March 2018) was a Russian businessman who was the deputy director of Aeroflot and a finance manager for AvtoVAZ. After claiming that Aeroflot worked as a “cash cow to support international spying operations”, he was arrested and tried in Russia on the allegation of channeling Aeroflot money through another company in 1999. He was convicted and released in 2004, after serving three years. He emigrated to the UK in 2010 and received political asylum. In 2017 he was convicted in absentia in Russia for allegedly stealing money from Aeroflot, but his extradition from Britain had been denied…. 3,000 people out of the total workforce of 14,000 in Aeroflot were FSB, SVR, or GRU officers….” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nikolai_Glushkov
