A lawyer for the family of Sergei Magnitsky (pictured) fell from an apartment building on Tuesday.
Nikolai Gorokhov fell from a window on Tuesday, a day before he was supposed to represent the mother of Sergei Magnitsky, whose death has been a focal point in souring U.S.-Russian relations.
Magnitsky said he had uncovered a $230 million fraud scheme by Russian government officials, but was imprisoned and convicted posthumously after being accused of the same fraud.
Gorokhov, 53, was set to appear in court on Wednesday in continued court proceedings into the matter, but was “thrown from the top floor of his apartment building” and suffered severe head injuries, according to a website connected to Magnitsky’s boss, financier Bill Browder.
