Woman Murders Doppelganger To Fake Her Own Death
A twenty-three-year-old German woman wanted to fake her own death and run away from her family. Shahraban searched social media and found a beauty blogger named Khadidja. They looked very similar. Sharaban and her boyfriend killed the young woman in the woods. They hoped to confuse the police and her family into believing she had died. Sharaban and boyfriend were arrested and charged with murder. The German media is calling it the Doppelganger murder.
Shockingly, this is not the only doppelganger murder in recent history. In 2016, New York woman, Victoria Nazarova tried to kill a woman and steal her identity with a poisoned cheescake. Earlier this month she was found guilty of attempted murder.
