When his wife left the home, he went out at 15:05 and at 16:47 he was found dead in a garage of the apartment block where he had lived.
He had one gunshot wound to the head. Though the officials were investigating the death under article 115 of the criminal code, which deals with suicide, but were examining other causes of his death as well.

For information, Erosi Kitsmarishvili was a Georgian media executive and served as Ambassador of Georgia to the Russian Federation from April to July 2008. Appointed in April 2008, Kitsmarishvili was recalled on 11 July after Russia confirmed it had conducted military flights over South Ossetia, a breakaway region of Georgia that would be occupied by Russia after the August 2008 War between the two states.

Since his dismissal in mid-September 2008 by Georgian president Mikheil Saakashvili. he publicly criticized Saakashvili's handling of the August 2008 war with Russia over the breakaway regions of South Ossetia and Abkhazia - claiming that although Russia had provoked the conflict, the actual fighting had been started by Georgia, and that the United States had approved the Georgian government's plans to retake Abkhazia in early 2008. In November 2009, Kitsmarishvili took over the management rights of the Tbilisi based pro-opposition television station Maestro TV.
