Interfax, Russia/May 21, 2008

Penza - The investigation into the death of two cult members who died in the cave where they had lived in seclusion for six months has concluded. The cave was destroyed with explosives following the investigation.

"The relatives of two women who died in the cave were notified that they could come and recover the bodies," the Penza region Governor Oleg Melnichenko told Interfax.

He did not comment on the details of the investigation.

"The decision to destroy the cave was taken following the conclusion of the working group that was formed last November to resolve the situation with the cult members. This decision was primarily due to the fact that the cave is dangerous both for the local population and for the curious. Now the restrictions to the site will be removed and access will be allowed," he said.

The local authorities have done this in order to provide security for the population, Melnichenko said.
