Next time someone comes to your house bringing bake goods make sure you think twice before eating, because they might be trying to poison you.
At least that was the case for Olga Tsvyk, a resident of Queens, NY. It’s one of the most strangest murder plots of this year.
According to court documents, the cheesecake killer, Viktoria Nasyrova, from Brooklyn, decided to kill Tsvyk and steal her identity. Nasyrova was a client of Tsvyk, who runs a beauty salon out of her home.
Nasyrova showed up, carrying the murder weapon — the cheesecake — claiming it’s a gift for Tsvyk for her excellent services. The salon owner reported eating two slices before she became extremely sick. Apperantly, Nasyrova laced the cheesecake with a powerful Russian tranquilizer.
As Tsvyk began to throw up and ask for help, Nasyrova staged the salon to make it look like Tsvyk killed herself. Then she took off with the victim’s passport and money.
She was eventually caught and arrested after her DNA was collected from the cheesecake box. Witnesses lined up to testify against Viktoria Nasyrova in her trial, telling the jury she had a long history of poisoning people. She first murder her neighbor in Russia, again by poisoning the woman then setting her body on fire. Nasyrova quickly boarded a flight to New York where she has been living ever since, drugging men she met on dating apps.
If found guilty, the cheesecake killer is looking at 25 years behind bars. If jail officials know what is good for them, they’ll keep her out of kitchen duties.
