A 17-year-old naked model had her eyes gouged out and her ears cut off after allegedly being hacked to death by her 'envious' drug-fuelled older sister. Stefania Dubrovina, was killed in the St Petersburg, Russia flat of an unnamed 42-year-old man on February 24. Her sister, 19-year-old Elizaveta, is in detention suspected of murdering her and mutilating her body.
Although she posed for naked photographs, St Petersburg showman Stas Baretsky denied she had taken part in any porn movies, and also insisted rumours that she worked as an escort girl were untrue.
An unnamed female friend told newspaper that on the night she died she had gone to see a man who has not been identified.
'It is not 100 per cent proved that she had romantic relations with his man,' said the friend. 'We are only sure that this man organised photo sessions for Stefania. She visited him a week before too.'
On 23 February, Stefania's sister Elizaveta joined her.
A police source told that the three of them had 'a great party' and by midnight they ran out of alcohol and the man went out to buy some more. But as soon the man had shut the door behind him, it is alleged that Elizaveta attacked her sister with a knife.
A police source said the killer cut off the ears of her victims, gouged out her eyes and cut the whole body.
A friend claimed Stefania's sister was always 'a bit crazy' and there were reports she was treated in a psychiatric clinic . Elizaveta also tried to look as glamorous and 'copied the image of her younger sister - the same hair colour, the same lipstick,' according to the newspaper report.
'There are photographs of both sisters hugging each other but there is no doubt that the elder sister envied the younger one.'
The girls were orphans, part of a larger family whose children were removed from their parents.
