January 21, 2012 | 15:13

GYUMRI. – Armenia’s Police Force solved the murder of Gyumri city resident Mari Davtyan, 21. To note, the police discovered Friday, at the basement of the damaged building of Gyumri’s former Polytechnic Institute, Davtyan’s dead body, which was burned and torn to pieces.

According to Armenian’s well-informed sources, Mari Davtyan was killed by Gyumri resident Gevorg Tadevosyan, 51, to protect her daughter’s honor. Our information was corroborated by the police, who also informed that it became apparent on Saturday that previously convicted Tadevosyan had struck blows at Mari Davtyan—on Friday at 4:30 p.m., at the first floor of the damaged building of Gyumri’s former Polytechnic Institute—subsequently tied her legs, put a plastic bag over her head, and suffocated her to death. Afterward, he covered the dead body with pieces of cloth, and went home. Then he returned at 7 p.m., poured diesel fuel on the young woman, and set her on fire.        

Gevorg Tadevosyan is arrested, and an investigation is launched.

It is noteworthy that Tadevosyan’s son was just as cruel against another woman, back in 2009, as he had killed her, burned the body, and hid it in the same location. According to our source, the revenge was again to protect the honor of his sister.
