[News] Man Responsible For Olympic Ring Mishap Found Dead In Sochi

The man responsible for operating the Olympic Rings during last night’s Winter Olympic Opening Ceremonies in Russia was found dead today.

According to local reports the body of T. Borris Avdeyev was found his hotel room early this morning with multiple stab wounds.

Avdeyev was a technical specialist responsible for the Olympic Ring spectacle, which embarrassingly malfunctioned last night. Five animatronic snowflakes were supposed to transform into Olympic Rings. The first four functioned properly but the fifth snowflake failed to change shape.

Although his body was badly mangled and the wounds were consistent with a struggle, so far officials say they don't suspect foul play.

“Sure there were stab wounds and bruises all over the body,” admits the lead investigator on the case, “But who knows what caused them. Maybe he tripped and fell on a set of knives. Right now we’re ruling this an accidental death.

“It’s terrible when accidents like this happen. But then again, maybe Mr. Avdeyev should have thought twice before he screwed up the Olympics. Accidents tend to happen to people who betray Russia.”

Despite the government’s story, fellow hotel guests reported hearing a struggle in Avdeyev’s room around 3am local time.

“There was a very loud noise last night,” Canadian bobsled member Guy Lafleur, who was staying two hotel rooms down, “I called the front desk but the phone didn't work so I went to the room where the sound was coming from and saw three big men leave the room.

Man Responsible For Olympic Ring Mishap Found Dead In Sochi

“There was a very loud noise last night,” Canadian bobsled member Guy Lafleur, who was staying two hotel rooms down, “I called the front desk but the phone didn't work so I went to the room where the sound was coming from and saw three big men leave the room.

I asked if there was a problem and they told me to go back to my room. Then this morning I find out the guy inside was dead. Very scary I told the police what I saw but they told me to forget what I saw. They were very intimidating.”

It was reported that Vladimir Putin was visibly upset with the botched ending of the ceremony and he may have been out for blood. He stormed out of the stadium and took off in a helicopter before the media could ask him any questions.

The embarrassment of his nation could have been too much for him to handle.

“Putin loves Russia to death,” said Alexander Zhukov, the Russian Olympic Committee President. “He also loves accountability.”

While there has not been accountability from the contractors responsible for building the Olympic Village, the Ceremony was a world wide event for everyone to see. Putin may hold that to a higher level.

“If he feels the Ceremony reflects him, who knows what he’ll do to seek justice,” said Zhukov before part of a hotel ceiling crashed to the floor beside him. “All I know is Borris Avdeyev failed Russia and got what he deserved.” More of the hotel began to crumble and the interview had to be cut short.

It being an article that appeared on a site that features EXCLUSIVELY SATIRICAL CONTENT does not make it a hoax, it makes you and the OP idiots

Yeah, I probably could have figured that out if I'd bothered to see that it originated on the Currant.

But hey, thanks for the love man.

Was a man actually killed for the now infamous Sochi Olympic Ring fail that happened at the Opening Ceremony Friday night? A rumor made waves across social media sites yesterday in a made up tale of T. Borris Avdeyev and his terrible murder. The rumor alleged that Avdeyev, the technical specialist who is reportedly responsible for the fifth Olympic ring fail, was found dead in his Sochi hotel room after being stabbed multiple times. Luckily, this story is not only outrageous but it is completely false.

The rumors started after The Daily Currant website – a satirical Internet news site that continues to fool social media with its fake news events stories they publish. A few other viral hoaxes have come from The Daily Currant, including a story that 39 people died from a marijuana overdoes, and President Obama is opening free “Obamastation” gas stations in poor neighborhoods.

An excerpt from The Daily Currant’s latest viral hoax about a man being killed for the Olympic Ring fail at Sochi’s Opening Ceremony can be found below:

“The man responsible for operating the Olympic Rings during last night’s Winter Olympic Opening Ceremonies in Russia was found dead today.
According to
local
reports the body of T. Borris Avdeyev was found his hotel room early this morning with multiple stab wounds.

failed to change shape. Although his body was badly mangled and the wounds were consistent with a struggle, so far officials say they don’t suspect foul play.”

While there are hints of satire in the hoax story, many still posted it on their social media accounts turning the story viral. Within just hours, the story has seen over 16,00 share on Facebook and Twitter.

The lesson from all of this should be to check your sources before you go and post stories to your social media accounts. If you see anyone else posting about this Olympic Ring fail murder hoax story, please refer them to this article.
