And the hits just keep coming

Literally.

Malik Akhmedilov, an investigative journalist in Dagestan, was found murdered today. In true North Caucasus fashion, his body was found in the trunk of a car.

Akhmedilov was known for his reporting on the one story sure to get you killed sooner or later: political assassinations and extrajudicial killings.

In the North Caucasus, reporters finish their careers by becoming part of the story in the worst way.
