So many puzzles concerning her death

This gruesome murder has been the talk for days.

24-year-old travel and lifestyle influencer, Ekaterina Karaglanova, had more than 85,000 followers on Instagram, and had recently graduated as a doctor. But circumstances surrounding her sudden death has sent chills down the spines of many, if not all.

After several days of no contact, Karaglanova’s parents reached out to her landlord. Unfortunately for them, they were horrified once granted access to her apartment.

They discovered her body stuffed inside a zipped suitcase, with stab wounds and a slit to the throat.

The job was clean — Police reports initially stated that “there was no evidence that a struggle had taken place at the apartment, and no weapon had been found”.

But not for long…

CCTV footage offers new evidence

After examining CCTV footage from the Russian Insta Star’s apartment, they made a number of findings.

At first, they suspected her ex-boyfriend. He was seen visiting her property in the days around her disappearance. But he’s no longer a suspect, considering the latest piece of evidence.

A mystery man had entered her block of flats “with his face hidden by a cap”, Daily Star UK reports.

“Four hours later, the same man left the apartment block with a smaller suitcase”, they added.

It was believed the man used the suitcase to dispose of her bloodstained clothes and the weapon used.

Now, investigations have taken a new turn… a confession has been made

According to BBC News, a man has come forward with a confession.

‘In a video released by prosecutors, Maxim Gareyev confesses to stabbing Ekaterina Karaglanova, 24, “at least five times in the neck and chest”‘, their article reports.

Furthermore in the said video, Maxim (33) explained his motives for the ‘crime’. He claims to have had an intimate relationship with the Insta star, until recently  — when things started going south.

 “She repeatedly insulted and humiliated me”, he said.

Mr Gareyev added he had given Ms Karaglanova money whenever they got together, but she begun mocking him since their last meeting.

“She told me that I was ugly and that even plastic [surgery] would not help me,” he explained, saying she had told him it would take a year for him to save enough money for them to meet again.

“I could not stand it,” Maxim confessed.

Although police have not clearly linked Maxim to the suspect they saw in the CCTV footage, it is widely believed he is the same person.

Russian Insta Star found dead in a suitcase

Meanwhile Russian news outlet, MK, report that Ekaterina was rumored to be in a new relationship, and had made travel plans for her birthday on July 30th.

The doctor was also considering redecorating her apartment, as she revealed in a recent Insta post.

Sadly, she died in the very same place…
