A Russian reality TV star who had gone missing was found dead in a river. Police are looking into how she died.
A reality TV star who had been missing for a few weeks was found dead in a river. Police think that she was killed.
The Sun says that Anastasia Kochervey, who was 28 at the time, stopped answering her phone or messages earlier this month.
On August 13, a body was found in a river in St. Petersburg.
On Wednesday, detectives said they think the woman is Anastasia Kochervey, a Russian reality TV star, and told her family.
RT says that the police found her in her underwear and that she had a tattoo of playing cards on her back.
Her death is being looked into, and police are trying to find out if she was killed.
Anastasia was a star on both Dom-2 and Let's Get Married. Dom-2 is a reality dating show where people try to find a partner while building a house.
Dom-2 has been on Russian TV since 2004. It is one of the longest-running reality shows ever.
Olesya Malibu, who is also a reality TV star, said that Anastasia had "issues with drug and alcohol abuse." She also said that Anastasia recently got into trouble in Moscow with a man who allegedly threatened to kill her.
She may have worked as an escort, and a friend said that she "may have gotten in with a bad crowd" that got her into trouble.
After she sold her apartment and moved to St. Petersburg a few weeks ago, Anastasia is said to have gotten in touch with Olesya.
She said that during their last call, she seemed "normal," but she also said that she "knew it would end this way."
Alexander Benkhin, Anastasia's friend, said nice things about her and called her a "talented" woman.
He said that when the reality TV star was young, she was disabled and couldn't walk. However, she was determined and "stubborn," so she learned how to walk and even tried bodybuilding.
Alexander said, "Anastasia was a smart girl. She got a job with a successful real estate company in Dubai."
