Controversy surrounding deathEdit

He committed suicide by jumping from a balcony. The postmortem examination of his body did not reveal any traces of alcohol or drugs.[1]

Nasyrov's supposed suicide has been disputed. Recent reports in the Russian press have implied that he may have been the victim of foul play, as family members and friends insist that Nasyrov was not depressed and had never considered suicide before. Some suspect that he was given an LSD tablet in a glass of wine at a club and after drinking it, he experienced hallucinations and leapt off his balcony.[2]
