Nemtsov, a vocal opponent of Russian President Vladimir Putin's, was gunned down hundreds of feet away from the Kremlin on Friday, February 27. The assassination has spawned a flood of conspiracy theories; many suspect the Kremlin of either direct or indirect involvement. Putin condemned the killing and ordered three law enforcement agencies to investigate, the Kremlin said. Pavel Golovkin/AP
