MOSCOW, Oct. 9 (UPI) -- Prosecutors in Moscow have released a video of the suspected contract killer in the slaying of journalist Anna Politkovskaya.

Politkovskaya, 48, won numerous international awards for her reporting on Russian atrocities in Chechnya. She was a harsh critic of the administration of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Investigators and journalists said they are certain Politkovskaya's death is connected to her work. Her newspaper was preparing an investigative piece Sunday about kidnappings linked to the forces of Chechnya's Russian-backed Prime Minister Ramzan Kadyrov.

Quite the conspiracy here. They are pretty much positive it was an assassination and it was connected directly to her work. What was she working on? The article says she's very harsh on Putin, could she have discovered something about him? What would cause her to be assassinated, and who contracted the kill?

1 Million dollars is out for anybody that can give information about the murder.

Very intersting. One thing that came to my mind though is how ridiculously poor the assasination was carried out. A pistol left by her side? All though this is the only thing that I can find wrong with this i'm sure more things will float up later. All i'm saying is this was in no way an assasination by the Russian goverment since they're not stupid to do this on Putin's birthday and to leave the firearm at the scene of the crime.
