A victim of depression?
It is often said that there is a dark side to glamour and reportedly, Alexandra also fell prey to loneliness. As per reports on Filmibeat, North Goan village locals near her residence said that the actress was suffering from depression after a recent breakup with her boyfriend.
Sexual harassment complaint in 2019

Her lawyer makes a final say in the death case, for now
A Goa-based Russian consulate lawyer Vikram Varma told IANS that the post-mortem will be conducted in presence of Russian officials soon and the manner of death should be considered closely. “We should rule out any possibility of homicide because people who commit murder, sometimes disguise their acts in such a clever manner that it appears like a suicide or an accident,” he shared.
