Case Number: 2018-09787

Los Angeles County is reporting the death of a 13-year-old Caucasian male that occurred at his residence.

The coroner’s office has identified the teenager as Alexandr Glukhovskiy.

Manner of Death: Homicide

Cause of Death: Intermediate Range Shotgun Wound of Head

RIP ALEXANDR GLUKHOVSKIY (November 23, 2005 – December 26, 2018)

Formal pronouncement of death was made on Wednesday at 11:00 p.m.

The decedent and his mother Natali were murdered by his father Viktor, who was sentenced to two life terms in prison.

Jurors found true special circumstance allegations of lying in wait and multiple murders and gun use and discharge allegations, but rejected a special circumstance allegation of murder for financial gain. Prosecutors had suggested the killings were done in part to cash in on insurance policies, but also so Glukhovskiy could begin a new life with another woman.
