The investigation into the horrifying mass murder of 12 people in Russia's southern Krasnodar region has been concluded, Regional Governor Alexander Tkachev said on Wednesday.

The bodies of eight adults and four minors, who gathered for a celebration in the village of Kushchevskaya, were found in a house set alight on November 5. The adults were stabbed to death, three children were strangled and one died of smoke inhalation.

Six people, including the suspected organizer of the massacre, have been detained in connection with the crime. The identities of the detainees have not been disclosed, but police said they were "active members" of a local gang.

Local investigators are probing five major versions of the mass murder, including personal dislike and the business activity of the victims. They said the case showed "no signs of extremism, terrorism, inter-ethnic or inter-confessional conflicts."
