LONDON (AP) — The daughter of the late Russian tycoon Boris Berezovsky says her father had a "joy for life" despite the frequent ups and downs he experienced.

Arina Berezovsky said in a statement released through British police that her father's life "was a turbulent roller-coaster with never-ending ordeals."

She said that "his all-consuming determination for justice will be an inspiration to me for the rest of my life."

Berezovsky, a one-time Kremlin powerbroker turned critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin, lived in self-imposed exile in Britain.

His body was found on the bathroom floor of his mansion west of London on March 23 with his neck bound.

Police say there are no signs that anyone else was involved in his death but they have not ruled out foul play.
