Adriana was stabbed. Her killer then set her apartment on fire.

On August 20, the police received calls about a fire in an apartment on Yeznik Koghbatsi St. in central Yerevan, Armenia’s capital. After the flames were extinguished, officers found a corpse marred by lacerations. They later confirmed that Adriana, at age 28, had been stabbed to death and her apartment set on fire.

Police arrested the 26-year-old suspect at a border checkpoint in Bavra along Armenia’s northern border, as he was attempting to flee to Georgia. He has admitted to committing murder, and law enforcement has launched criminal proceedings.

Adriana was apparently a gentle person. A friend said this of her:

“Adriana could never hurt or cause anyone pain. She was an extremely good and kind person. She was not for this world. This world is very evil.”
