A Sweet Attempt at Death

Back in August of 2016, an attempted murder took place in one of the most bizarre fashions. According to the article, Russian temptress accused of poisoning pal with a piece of cheesecake, Viktoria Nasyrova, 42, is now being accused of attempting to murder, Olga Tsvyk in New York. Nasyrova had poisoned a piece of cheesecake and fed it to her friend because Nasyrova was attempting to take Tsvyk’s identity. Moreover, the motive for this crime was clear because Nasyrova has a tremendous criminal history. She is wanted in Russia for a murder that took place back in 2014. Also, she is currently serving time for a different crime, which involved her fleecing two men from dating websites. This unhinged attempted murder was all due to the fact that Nasyrova and Tsvyk shared similar physical features, so stealing her friend’s identity, could have prevented her from getting caught by law enforcement back when the crime occurred. The case is now an ongoing investigation and should reach trial soon. To read the rest of the article, click HERE.

The defendant, Olga Tsvyk explained how this was no accident and Nasyrova is believed to be behind this. According to the defendant, the cheesecake was given as a gift. Little did she know, the drug, phenazepam, was laced inside the delightful dessert. Tsvyk woke up in her own bed, “dressed in lingerie with pills scattered around her body – as if the woman had attempted to kill herself”. To make matters even worse, Nasyrova stole Tsvyk’s passport, jewelry, and cash.

Nasyrova could be facing up to 25 years in prison if convicted of her recent crimes.  Had this occurred in California, Nasyrova could be facing the following crimes –  attempted murder (Penal Code section 664-187), first-degree burglary (Penal Code 459-460), , felony false imprisonment (Penal Code section 236-237), grand theft (Penal Code section 487) and possession of stolen property (Penal Code section 496).
