UK police: Post-mortem shows Russian tycoon Berezovsky's death 'consistent with hanging'

British police say that a post-mortem examination has found that self-exiled Russian tycoon Boris Berezovsky's death was "consistent with hanging."

Thames Valley Police did not specify Monday whether Berezovsky hanged himself, but said that a pathologist has found nothing to indicate a violent struggle.

The 67-year-old businessman — a one-time Kremlin powerbroker who later became a fierce critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin — was found dead at his home in England on Saturday.

Police say that further tests, including toxicology examinations, will be carried out and that it could take weeks for the results to be known.
