Loosing close ones is always dramatic. It's a finlity that one must accept, but acceptance often doesn't come easy. That is especially true one people choose to leave this life. Right now, this drama is happening in the family of Oksama Domnina, who has recently one silver at the European figure skating championships.
As we now know, the athlete's father Alexander Domnin commited suicide on his birthday at home in Kirov. He was planning to mark turning 45, he was rather happy and optimistic, planning to mark the day with a shish-kabob picnic with friends. However, that was not to be.
Domnin has been found in his appartment, having shot himself with a hunter's gun that was registered to him. Next to the body was a farewell note where he asked his loved ones forgiveness for his action, and said that nobody is responsible for making him make the decision. The police said unequivocally that it was a suicide.
There are no details released to the public yet, as there is no information on what could make the skater's father take his own life. At this point, regional district attorney is conducting investingation. Some sources say that some problems at work could prompt the step - Domnin was the chauffeur of an interior affairs boss of Lenin region of the city.
Having found out what happened, Oksana Domnina immediately went to Kirov, but has refreained from commenting. She only mentioned being concerned about dirty gossip being springing up around her father's death.
