MOSCOW (Reuters) – A Russian businessman who set up a museum dedicated to Soviet dictator Josef Stalin was electrocuted and bludgeoned to death on Friday, media reported.

Vasily Bukhtiyenko set up the Stalin museum in 2005 in Volgograd, previously called Stalingrad, about 560 miles southeast of Moscow.

“He was resting at a tennis court. That is where the murder happened,” state-run RIA Novosti news agency quoted a spokeswoman for regional investigators as saying.
