A ballerina from the world-famous Bolshoi Theatre who disappeared six years ago may have been chopped up and dissolved in sulfuric acid by a man who had sexually compromising images of her, according to reports.
Russian investigators are reportedly pursuing a new lead in the case of 25-year-old Olga Demina, 25, who went missing in 2014, according to East2West News, which cited a report in Komsomolskaya Pravda.
She is believed to have been killed in an alleged blackmail plot by Malkhaz Dzhavoev, 40, the prime suspected, who has been described as her “manager” and “lover,” the news outlet reported.
In 2017, Dzhavoev was extradited from Germany on an Interpol warrant and held in Moscow after fleeing from Russia while posing as a Kurdish refugee, according to the report.
He was recently released from prison after serving five and a half years for fraud involving an apartment belonging to Demina’s boyfriend Alexey Fetisov.
