A Belgian executive who worked for one of Russia’s richest men has been found dead after apparently falling from an apartment building in central Moscow, according to media reports.

The body of Bruno Charles De Cooman was discovered beneath his luxury ninth-floor apartment close to the Kremlin on Wednesday, Britain’s The Times newspaper has reported.

According to the BBC, De Cooman was vice president for research and development at Novolipetsk Steel (NLMK), a Russian steel giant owned by oligarch Vladimir Lisin, one of the richest men in Russia.

The circumstances of the executive's death remain unclear, and a police investigation is under way, the British public broadcaster reported on its bbc.com website, citing Russian media.

Britain's The Sun tabloid cited sources it did not name as saying that there were no signs that the businessman was suicidal, and that he was “completely sober” when he died.

“Obviously, in order to discover all the circumstances a criminal investigation for murder will be launched," a law enforcement source said, according to The Sun.
