It's the old "Suicide, Soviet Style":
KIEV, Ukraine (AP) - The former interior minister was found dead in his home Friday, an apparent suicide, just before he was to be questioned about the 2000 slaying of an investigative journalist, dealing a blow to an inquiry that could implicate the former president.

Former Interior Minister Yuriy Kravchenko suffered two gunshot wounds to the head, a TV station reported he left a note blaming his suicide on former President Leonid Kuchma ``and his entourage,'' and the journalist's widow suggested it was all part of a cover-up to protect ``the old regime."
Anyone know how many bullet holes are needed to push it past "an apparent suicide'? If it weren't for the dry routineness of the story, this would be something you'd read in National Lampoon.
