Slain St. Petersburg journalist had reported attacks before

Andrushchenko was known for his criticism of Russian President Vladimir Putin and his investigative reports alleging corruption and human rights abuses, including by local police.

Usov said officials demanded documents, and then "he was found near his home with a broken head".

The police are unlikely to put much effort into the investigation, since Andruschenko wrote a lot about the arbitrariness of the police, and he was not liked for his intransigence.

Also in 2007, Andrushchenko was charged with libel, publicly calling for extremist activity, and insulting an official, says.

Novy Peterburg's editor-in-chief, Denis Usov, told The Associated Press on Thursday that Andrushchenko had told his colleagues that unknown people had beaten him up before, demanding that he reveal his sources and details of his research. A week later, the biggest local publishing house, Gazetny Kompleks, said it was overloaded and refused to print the paper's issue; and another publishing house refused to print the edition carrying an article by opposition leader Garry Kasparov on its front page.
