The ballerina of the famous Bolshoi Theater was reportedly killed after being the victim of a needle-stick operation by a man who allegedly possessed “sexually compromising” photos of her.
Malkhaz Dzhavoev, 40, described as the dancer’s “director” and “lover”, was detained in Moscow in 2017 after being extradited on Interpol warrant from Germany where he had fled Russia, claiming pass for a Kurdish refugee.
He was recently jailed for five and a half years for fraud involving an apartment belonging to Olga’s boyfriend, Alexey Fetisov, while he is also suspected of his murder.
Today, a law enforcement official told Komsomolskaya Pravda that Dzhavoev “let slip” Olga’s corpse “had been dismembered and dissolved in acid” with its remains presumably thrown into a dumpster. well near a lake.
The source said: “There is research going on there now.
“Sulfuric acid doesn’t have to dissolve everything at zero.
“Some body fragments must be preserved. But they have yet to be found.
Dzhavoev – seen in a video during his wedding in 2012 – and his father bought sulfuric acid from an industrial source, it is alleged.
A skull find last year near where Dzhavoev’s mobile signal was recorded the night Olga went missing has not been found to be related to the case.
The ballerina’s mother, Elena Demina, said: “Investigators told me new information has emerged in the case.
“The killer murdered her and then dismembered the corpse … then he dissolved parts of the corpse in acid.
Immediately before she disappeared, Dzhavoev had taken her on a trip out of Moscow to dance for a group of businessmen in a nightclub.
The criminal case concerning Olga’s disappearance alleges: “While he was in the apartment on the night of August 20, 2014, Dzhavoev allegedly attacked Demina and committed premeditated murder. »
The mother told that before her death, the dancer paid Dzhavoev large sums of money.
“Shortly before her death, she sold her Peugeot car. She went to sell it with Malkhaz. (Dzhavoev), he took the money, ”she said.
“Olya also had loans in her name – and gave Malkhaz money.
“She was completely at his mercy.
She had clearly been concerned that “sexually compromising” photos of her would appear online – and despite paying the money to avoid this, the photos were released.
Dzhavoev’s attorney denied any wrongdoing by his client following Olga’s disappearance and claimed the ballerina may have fled abroad living on the proceeds of a housing scam.
“We have information that Olga Demina has long dreamed of leaving Russia and organizing her personal life abroad,” said a member of her legal team.
Her family claim she was swindled out of money from a housing contract shortly before her disappearance.
