Death of Edward Lee Howard

Question: What can you tell us about the death of Edward Lee Howard in Russia? Was his death ever confirmed? Did Consular officials ever view, collect, bury or repatriate his body?

Answer: According to Russian police authorities, Edward Lee Howard died in Moscow on July 12, 2002, as the result of a fall in his residence. His body was cremated privately at the instructions of his next of kin. Out of respect for the privacy of his family, we have no further comment.
