Russian tycoon’s death prompts probe

LONDON — There was no evidence to suggest anyone else was involved in the death of Boris Berezovsky, the self-exiled Russian tycoon who went from Kremlin kingmaker to fiery critic, British police said Sunday.

With an investigation under way, police are treating the death of Berezovsky — who fled to Britain in the early 2000s after a bitter falling out with Russian President Vladimir Putin — as unexplained. But the former oligarch survived assassination attempts and faced financial difficulties, prompting speculation as to whether his death was part of a conspiracy — or suicide.
