Embassy gets dead Russian's remains

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        LEBANON — The body of a Russian native killed in a March 1 crash on Interstate 75 has been cremated, and the remains and his personal effects have been turned over to the Russian embassy.

        Police were unable to find any next of kin in this country or friends of Grigori Sokia, which led to the unclaimed body being cremated, Ohio State Highway Patrol Lt. Michael Sanders said.

        Mr. Sokia, 32, died on I-75 near Ohio 63 after his northbound Oldsmobile Achieva crossed into the path of a southbound vehicle. His passenger, Kuranbayev Nariman, 44, also of Russia and who doesn't speak English, remains in Miami Valley Hospital.
