Murder! Olympics!

Andrei Lugovoi, a seat-holder in the Russian Duma, is considering running for mayor of Sochi, a resort destination nestled between the Black Sea and the Caucasus Mountains. Here’s the dual rub: Sochi will play host to the 2014 Winter Games, and Lugovoi is a murder suspect. In fact, Lugovi is Scotland Yard’s leading suspect in the fatal poisoning of former KGB agent Alexander Litvinenko. Obviously, all of this raises the unsavory possibility that an alleged murderer will be welcoming the world to the 2014 Winter Olympics.

NBC, you have your human-interest programming angle.
