The news of the child, found two months after the disappearance, spread throughout the media. According to the law, we have no right to give the name and surname of the boy - but those who followed this terrible story know that we are talking about a first-grader from one of the Vladimir villages.
On September 28 at two o'clock in the afternoon, he got off the school bus. The house was only 200 meters away, but the boy seemed to have sunk into the water. Hundreds of people went up in search of him - the police, the military, volunteers of the LisaAlert detachment, and local residents. Volunteers came from neighboring areas. The announcement of the loss was spread on all social networks, on poles, in shops and public transport. A reward of one million rubles was announced for information about the child. And only late at night on November 19 did the message appear: found. Alive!
The boy was found in one of the villages just 30 km from his native village. To get into a house standing on the outskirts, a special operation was needed - in the video filmed at the time of its conduct, you can watch how in the dark a metal door is opened with an autogenous gun, and some of the armed fighters enter the room through the window. In the room in front of the computer, a young man - this is Dmitry Kopylov, who pushed someone else's child into the car and drove away practically from the gate of the house. The boy is here - at the sight of the operatives, he laughs and immediately starts crying. For two months the child did not see anyone close to him. The kidnapper hid him in the basement. To avoid roaring, he gave me a laptop.
What goals was pursued by Kopylov, kidnapping the boy, the experts have to figure out. In numerous publics in which this story is vigorously discussed, they say that he is not local - he moved from Suzdal after his mother's death. Those who recognized him say that the guy did not stand out in any way - he was only good at computers. Near Suzdal, Kopylov still has a dacha, from where the investigators will take the hard disks - that they are stored there, Dmitry said during his arrest.
On the trail of the criminal, according to official data, the employees of the Criminal Investigation Department were helped by colleagues from Interpol, who detected information about a man holding a little boy in the house on the darknet - the shadow segment of the Internet. Netizens call him a "pedophile." But, as the child's father said, the baby was examined by doctors, and no traces of violence were found. They write that the scumbag corrupted the boy, showing him indecent images. Investigators will understand this too.
In any case, it is terrible to imagine what a seven-year-old boy, cut off from home, had to endure. You may need the help of psychologists.
It is also reported that Kopylov suffers from schizophrenia, and the kidnapping is not the first on his account. How he escaped punishment is another question to be answered by the experts.
In social networks, the news of the rescue of the Vladimir first-grader is called the best news of this year. Everyone was very touched by the trouble of the family, which for almost two months did not have information about the child. And everyone so wanted to hope for the best. They made guesses, put forward versions. As always, psychics were involved. Alas, most reported the worst. And yesterday someone remembered one of the notes made in the first days after the disappearance of the child: the boy will be found in November, when the first snow falls. I don’t want to believe in mysticism, but in any case, it’s good that this horror is over - thanks to the efforts of all caring people.
