Alina Sheykhet murder: Pittsburgh police hunt her ex-boyfriend

Alina Sheykhet murder: Pittsburgh police hunt her ex-boyfriend

Authorities were called to Russian-born Alina Sheykhet's home around 9 a.m. after her parents found her unresponsive on the second floor of the residence, the Pittsburgh Police said in a news release.

The Allegheny County medical examiner ruled the death a homicide, but didn't specify what, where or how Sheykhet was struck on her body or what type of object may have been used.

The division's Violent Crime Unit is presently exploring, police said. It is unclear what police want to ask him about, but they say there are no current suspects, motives or charges in this case.

"We do not believe at this time that this was a random act of violence", said Pittsburgh Police Chief Scott Schubert. "There is no cont'd threat to Oakland residents & the university communities". She was found on the floor. They arrived at a residence on the 3500 block of Cable Place and discovered a female victim on the second floor of the residence.

'It appears that the death was from blunt force trauma'.

He was arrested and charged with felony criminal trespass after he allegedly broke into her apartment on 26 September.

They say 20-year-old Alina Sheykhet had filed a protection-from-abuse order against 21-year-old Matthew Darby last month.

Because of his absence, the DA is in the process of getting a judge to revoke Darby's bond, making him wanted by law enforcement in two counties.




Darby was charged in March with rape, sexual assault and other charges in an unrelated case.

She also told police Darby contacted her through Snapchat after he was interviewed by police and told not to have any contact with her.

"I feel so bad because I saw a guy and a lady, they were crying so loud", she said, adding that she thinks they were "the mother and father" of Sheykhet.

"She didn't answer the phone".

"I was screaming, asking her to breathe", Yan said.

"Right now we are looking at several different possible scenarios as to the circumstances surrounding this", Pittsburgh Police Sgt. William Vollbergn said.

"Our campus is saddened and extends its deepest sympathies to the student's family and those who knew her", the Pitt spokesperson said in a statement. "The University Counseling Center will be open for walk-in appointments beginning Monday and can be reached around the clock at 412-648-7930".
