There is nothing mysterious or unsolved around the suicide of secret archives chief Bozhidar Doychev, district prosecutor Spas Iliev announced.

The prints on the gun are indiscernible and cannot be compared with Doychev's Iliev confirmed. He explained to private Nova TV that that happened because after the shot, the gun slid and the prints were smeared.

Gunshot residue was found on Doychev's hand, however, proving that he was the person who produced the shot.

Deputy Chief Prosecutor Kamen Sitnilski said that a thorough investigation has been launched into the case.

MP Atanas Atanasov from the Democrats for strong Bulgaria raised doubt in the suicide version, when, together with the members of the internal parliamentary commission he got acquainted with the documents on the case. Doychev did not have any motive to commit suicide, Atanasov said, pointing out the lack of fingerprints. Nevertheless, the case was closed with the statement that it was not an assassination, but a suicide.

There were some doubts looming in the case as some officials hinted the case was a cover-up, because Doychev's death was announced officially two days after the accident.
