This young single mother who turned to prostitution to support her family including a disabled mother and an 11-year-old daughter was murdered by a client who then stripped her naked and dumped her body out on the street.
The shocking case happened in the city of Mytishchi in the western Russian region of Moscow Oblast where the naked body of Olga Alexeeva, 27, was found by residents outside the apartment block at 18, Silikatnaya street.
The young woman had been asked to turn up at the apartment rented by local man Oleg Tochilkin, 52, who had specifically chosen it so that he could have his liaison with the woman in private.
He had insisted on her sharing a drink with him, but at some point had become angry at something she said, and allegedly attacked her violently, before strangling her to death when he realised that she had been badly injured.
He then allegedly stripped her naked, and dumped the body on the street outside where local residents raised the alarm. Paramedics who turned up noted the abuse that she had clearly suffered including the wounds to her neck and could only declare her dead after taking her to hospital.
The alleged killer, Tochilkin, had meanwhile fled the scene and police who turned up a short while later were able to identify his vehicle, and carried out a high-speed chase during which he was eventually arrested.
A search of the records revealed that he had an extensive criminal record although local media did not report what this involved.
Alexeeva reportedly hailed from the Bryansk city in the western Russian region of the same name. She had turned to prostitution to support her family, which consisted of her disabled mother, whose name was not given, and her 11-year-old daughter.
Police, who are still investigating, say that Tochilkin has been placed in a pretrial detention centre on charges of murder.
