A young man shot himself in the head after knifing two pals for raping his girlfriend – after she tearfully admitted she made the whole story up.
Ruslan Lebedev, 26, reportedly stabbed Maxim Khabibullin, 17, and Alexander Rain, 16, after his girlfriend Anna claimed both teens forced her to have sex with them.
Khabibullin died in the attack while Rain is fighting for his life in intensive care in Omsk, Russia.
But a horrified Anna revealed she made the whole story up after Ruslan told how he had avenged her.
Ruslan’s dead body was found in a nearby forest on Wednesday.
A handgun was found beside his corpse.
According to local media, Anna told pals she feels sorry about what has happened, saying she never thought her boyfriend could do something like that and that the two had teens never harmed her.
Anna was called into the police station for questioning as the authorities investigate the deaths of the two men and the injuries of the third in intensive care, according to reports.
It comes after a high-flying Russian detective shot herself with a police handgun after being forced to work alongside a senior colleague she had accused of raping her.
Straight-A student Maria Klochkova, 23, began her dream job as a criminal investigator in August after being fast tracked into the police.
But her life was ruined after she claimed she had been attacked by a senior colleague amid reports of a “culture of bullying” at her workplace.
Now Maria’s heartbroken family have broken their silence to demand a full investigation.
Her sister, Anna, believes the circumstances into Maria’s death at a police station in Sochi, Russia, were covered up, with other reasons blamed for the tragedy.
She posted: ”My sister is not mentally ill, she did not have schizophrenia, but was pushed to suicide.
“She was raped by a detective. From that moment she thought she was a disgrace for our family, not the victim of an idiot.”
