NATALIA Bochkareva, the daughter of an ally of Vladimir Putin, was mysteriously found dead aged 44.
Her death is the latest among the Russian elite and comes just one week after another Putin ally suddenly died of unexplained causes.
Who was Natalia Bochkareva?
Natalia Bochkareva was 44-years-old.
At the time of her death, Natalia was residing in a property in the upscale Presnensky District.
She previously hit headlines two years ago after falling victim to a scam, in which she had sent a self-styled fortune-teller £136,000 to remove a curse over the course of two months.
However, after receiving the money, the fortune teller had broken off all contact with Natalia and failed to fulfil her part of their agreement, and as a result the police were involved.
Aside from this information, not much is known about Natalia’s personal life.
How did Natalia Bochkareva die?
On July 14, 2023, Natalia Bochkareva’s death was announced.
The 44-year-old died after reportedly feeling unwell the day before at her apartment in Moscow’s Presnensky district.
Her body was discovered in her apartment by a concierge who called the police to report that she had stopped answering the door.
Following the report, officers attended the property and forced entry on July 11, where they then found Natalia’s body.
According to preliminary reports, Natalia suffered from heart problems and there were no signs of a violent death.
Her death comes a week after Belarusian Minister of Transport and Communications Aleksey Avramenko mysteriously died.
His cause of death has not been revealed.
And earlier this month Russian chief prosecutor Andrey Fomin, was swimming in the Volga, Europe’s longest river, when he suddenly died, but reportedly “did not drown.”
Who is Natalia Bochkareva’s father?
Natalia Bochkareva was the daughter of Vladimir Putin ally and former regional governor late Vasily Bochkaryov.
Her father Vasily, who belonged to Vladimir Putin’s United Russia party, governed Penza Oblast from 1998 to 2015.
A year after leaving office, Vasily died aged 67 from lung cancer on June 22, 2016.
Following her father’s passing, Natalia managed the family lumber-processing and bakery businesses.
