Conspiracies swirl over death of Russian exile

As Russian investigators try to figure out what killed a man the Kremiln dubbed an "enemy of the state," friends and allies of Boris Berezovsky passionately insist it isn't a matter of what killed him, but who.

The exiled Russian billionaire was found dead at his home in England over the weekend. Some speculate he died of a heart attack, others suspect it was suicide, but it is clear that no matter what the investigation reveals, there are those who will always believe Berezovsky's contentious relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin is what ultimately cost him his life.

After all, history has shown us it is always better play nice with mother Russia.

CNN's Phil Black has the story.
