The daughter of a Putin ally was found dead in the most recent high-profile death among Russia’s elite.
The concierge at her Moscow building called the police to report that she was found inside after she had stopped answering the door.
She also said that the 44-year-old had been unwell the day before.
On July 11th, police were called to a mansion in Moscow’s affluent Presnensky District. They entered the house through the broken front door and were horrified to find Natalya’s body inside.
According to preliminary data, it appears that the death was not a violent one.
Her father, Vasily, was governor of the Penza oblast from 1998 to 2015.
The 67-year-old former United Russia party member who had worked under Vladimir Putin passed away a year after he left office due to lung cancer.
It is believed that when her father died, Natalya ran the family bakery and timber processing businesses.
Two years ago, she was in the news because she fell victim to con artists.
In order to get a “curse” removed, Natalya paid a self-styled fortune teller 136,000 pounds over the period of two months.
In the end, it was necessary to call the police.
There were initial indications that Natalya was having heart problems.
Last week, another close Putin ally died under mysterious circumstances.
Transport and Communications Minister of Belarus Aleksey Avramenko died under mysterious circumstances that have yet to be explained.
A prominent Russian prosecutor’s body was found in a river earlier this month, but it was determined that he “did not drown.”
Also, Andrey Fomin drowned suddenly while swimming in the Volga, Europe’s longest river.
