Crocodile Tears

[A]t the funeral of Oleg Vagin, first godfather of the Centralny criminal group in Yekaterinburg … mourners were waiting for Konstantin Tziganov, boss of the Uralmash gang, to show up and kiss Vagin’s embalmed body.  Failing to do so was believed to be an admission of Tziganov’s guilt.  Tziganov arrived at the cemetery minutes before the coffin was to be lowered into the grave and kissed Vagin on the face.  Should people thus be sure that he did not order Vagin’s killing?
