Witnesses say that on the day of the arrest they heard mother and son arguing so loud that people wanted to call the police.
The authorities were finally called when staff at the five star Korstan Hotel in Kazan called police after finding Sosin walking around in only his underwear on Saturday.
Police arrived shortly afterwards, and ‘found a young man strongly intoxicated with drugs’, a law enforcement source from the regional branch of the Interior Ministry revealed.
‘A woman with signs of violent death was found in his room,’ the source continued.
‘The police found out that the woman and the young man arrived from Moscow in the afternoon, rented a room, and in the evening the young man beat up and suffocated his mother during an argument.’
Images obtained from police by LifeNews showed his mother’s body lying on a bed stained with blood.
