The New York authorities recently arrested a 42-year-old Russian femme fatale believed to have orchestrated the death of her close friend in an attempt to steal her identity and valuables. According to the woman’s arrest warrant, she recently fled from Russia to New York, where she was investigated in the murder of another woman.
Russian Femme Fatale Managed to Seduce Detective in Charge of Her Case
Last week, the New York authorities arrested 42-year-old Viktoria Nasyrova, a Russian femme fatale and charged her with several counts including burglary, reckless endangerment, and attempted murder. According to Nasyrova’s arrest warrant, on the 28th of August 2016, while visiting a friend, later identified as Olga Tsvyk, at her Forrest Hill house, she plotted to murder her and steal her documents.
The authorities noted that Nasyvora’s plan was based on the fact that she bore a striking resemblance to the victim, having the same hair color and facial feature. Knowing that her victim was fond of sweets, especially cheesecake, Nasyrova brought a cake laced with phenazepam, a potent tranquilizer.
After taking a few bites from the tainted cake, Tsvyk collapsed. The Russian femme fatale placed her friend’s body on the bed and, allegedly, emptied the contents of several pill bottles around Tsvyk to make it look like the woman committed suicide.
Before leaving her house, Nasyrova stole the victim’s passport, work credentials, and jewelry. The woman was later discovered by one of her friends who took her to the hospital. Fortunately, the doctors were able to reverse the effects of the tranquilizer.
Tsvyk told the authorities about her encounter with Nasyvora. The woman was arrested several days later. Court documents suggest that the woman fled Russia where she was wanted for the murder of a 54-year-old woman. Furthermore, it would appear that the woman managed to stay below the radar after she seduced an American detective who was charged with investigating the Russian femme fatale’s connection to the Russian murder.
