Russian spammer murdered

Who killed Vardan Kushnir?

Kushnir, allegedly one of the world's more prolific spammers, was found beaten to death in his Moscow apartment, according to a report on the vnunet.com Web site.

The Russian's apartment appeared disheveled, with a number of valuable items apparently stolen, according to the report. Police will review footage of a courtyard in Kushnir's apartment complex, hoping to find clues to the perpetrator.

Kushnir, who ran a language institute, allegedly spammed millions of people with offers of English classes taught at his American Language Center.
