A new report claims that the ‘cryptoqueen’ wanted for her alleged role in the $4,000,000,000 OneCoin scam may have been murdered aboard a yacht in 2018.
According to the Bureau for Investigative Reporting and Data (BIRD), known drug lord Hristoforos ‘Taki’ Amanatidis may have ordered the murder of OneCoin founder Ruja Ignatova.
Per the report, the murder may have taken place in 2018 aboard a yacht in the Ionian Sea, her body mutilated and thrown overboard.
BIRD bases the information upon documents it reportedly has viewed that contain an agent’s report on the matter. However, the report’s information is not authenticated and the details about Ignatova’s death appear to remain the subject of speculation.
Per BIRD, the documents were found at the home of a former top Bulgarian officer, Lyubomir Ivanov, after he was murdered last year. The documents reportedly say that the alleged details about Ignatova’s death came from a conversation with Georgi Georgiev Vasilev, Amanatidis’ brother-in-law, when he was intoxicated.
Ignatova remains on the FBI’s “Ten Most Wanted Fugitives” list for “her alleged participation in a large-scale fraud scheme” that is “alleged to have defrauded billions of dollars from investors all over the world.”
In December, co-founder of the OneCoin $4 billion crypto pyramid scheme, Karl Sebastian Greenwood, pled guilty to money laundering and wire fraud charges. Ignatova is the alleged leader of the scam.
Greenwood and Ignatova launched OneCoin in 2014 and allegedly made false claims that OneCoin maintained a private blockchain.
