A Russian model, Irina Dvizova, and her teenage daughter, Dayana Dvizova, have been discovered brutally murdered in the popular resort city of Bodrum, Turkey. The bodies were found by patrol cops on a steep slope near the area. One of the victims was wrapped in sheets and tied up with rope, while both had gunshot wounds.
Irina Dvizova, 42, was known as a model for luxury brands in Bodrum, Istanbul, and Cappadocia. Family members raised concerns when Irina and her 15-year-old daughter went missing days before their bodies were found. Relatives visited the villa rented by Irina and discovered blood on the couch, prompting them to alert the authorities.
According to Russian media, friends and family members have pointed to Irina’s ex-husband, Andrey Kuslevich, as a possible suspect. Kuslevich, a Lithuanian national with a criminal record, is wanted on charges in Russia and was previously accused of stealing a precious diamond in Monaco. Sources close to Irina revealed that the couple was involved in a custody dispute over their 5-year-old son, who is believed to have been taken by Kuslevich.
Irina’s son, David, 20, described his former stepfather as violent and cruel. However, he mentioned that his mother did not express any concerns during their last conversation a few days before the murders.
Dayana, the 15-year-old daughter, had aspirations of becoming a model. She had recently celebrated her birthday in Istanbul and shared her excitement about the trip on social media.
The investigation into the murders is ongoing, with authorities focusing on the possible involvement of Andrey Kuslevich.
