Leikovic allegedly used a kitchen knife to kill her 40-year-old mother before meeting up with her boyfriend in Comrat, Moldova. The rising Instagram influencer was charged with murder and is reportedly the only suspect in the ongoing investigation.

According to the Daily Mail, when Leikovic appeared in court, a journalist asked her if she was guilty. She reportedly laughed and said, "Goodbye."

While the motive remains unclear, a police spokesperson told Komsomolskaya Pravda that Leikovic was upset with her mother for trying to get her checked into a drug rehab center for an alleged drug addiction. Leikovic's uncle, however, reportedly denied these claims, saying, “This was a very good family. Praskovya loved her daughter so much, and she spent as much time with her as she could. It took two hours for the police to tell me Anna is the main suspect. I could not even imagine this.”

Leikovic reportedly graduated from medical school and posts modeling and lifestyle photos to her Instagram. Her father, Vasily Aladov, according to Heavy, ran for governor in Gagauzia in 2019.
