“A wealthy British businessman died in a hit-and-run in Ukraine while celebrating his first wedding anniversary, an inquest has heard.
Barry Pring, 47, suffered fatal injuries when he was hit by a vehicle â€“ possibly a lorry â€“ while waiting for a taxi outside a restaurant in Kiev with his wife, Ganna Ziuzina, on February 16 2008.
The IT consultant married Ms Ziuzina, known as Anna in 2007 in a whirlwind romance after meeting online a few months earlier.
The family then began to have suspicions about Mr Pringâ€™s death.
â€œWe became suspicious about what happened the night Barry died and we hired a private investigator and solicitor in the Ukraine to find out what happened,â€� Mrs Pring said.
â€œIt would appear the initial accident was not investigated as thoroughly as it should be and the police did not appear to be suspicious about the circumstances of what happened.
â€œOur investigation told us the car that was in collision with Barry was on false plates and had been stolen from a car park near to the apartment which was rented for Anna by Barry before they got married.â€�
â€œMr Clifford said it was possible my brother may have been murdered for his assets and went through a list of reasons why.” – MSN
