Russia's most famous female bodyguard Anna Loginova has been killed after failing to prevent her own Porsche being carjacked.
"She suffered serious injuries and died at the scene," said a police spokesman.
Police believe that she was killed in a random carjacking and was not the victim of an attack based on her work for wealthy high-profile Russian clients.
Loginova ran an agency for female bodyguards, some trained by the ex-KGB, to give discreet protection to Moscow's billionaires and their wives and mistresses.
In a recent magazine interview, she insisted that she and her team of glamorous bodyguards gave better protection than the more traditional beefy male security men.
Loginova, 29, had recently foiled a thief by using her Jujitsu moves before pulling a gun on him
"I do think that a girl should be a girl, not a Terminator," she said. She posed semi-naked for a Moscow men's magazine to make it clear that she was feminine as well as good with a gun.
She was highly respected for her bodyguard skills. "A normal man gets sick and tired of male bodyguards around him all the time," she said.
