(International Business Times) Vladimir Pribylovsky had co-written a number of books, none of them with titles that particularly flattered Russian President Vladimir Putin. "The Putin Corporation: The Story of Russia's Secret Takeover" was one. Another was "The Age of Assassins: The Rise and Rise of Vladimir Putin: How Scary Are Russia's New Rulers?" Now, Pribylovsky has been found dead in Moscow at the age of 59, and the cause of his death remains unclear.
Pribylovsky was found dead in his apartment, his colleague and sometimes co-author Yury Felshtinsky wrote on Facebook, Radio Free Europe reported Wednesday. Russian officials had not commented on the reported death, and Felshtinsky said he had "no further information at this point."
