48 Hours: The Case of the Poison Cheesecake airs Saturday June 3, 2023 on CBS.

In 2016, a client of a beauty stylist in Queens, New York, almost kills her by bringing a piece of poisoned cheesecake to her house. Detectives are at a loss to explain the crime and its motive until they notice the striking resemblance between the victim, Viktoria Nasyrova, and the stylist, Olga Tsvyk. 48 HOURS and Peter Van Sant discuss their encounter with Nasyrova and her shady past in “The Case of the Poison Cheesecake.”

The attempted murder and identity theft in “The Case of the Poison Cheesecake” set the stage for a private investigator to track down the murder suspect, Nasyrova, who is wanted for murder in Russia as well.

“Hands down one of the … craziest cases that I’ve ever had to deal with,” says police detective Kevin Rodgers.

Tsvyk claims that after eating the poisoned cake, she passed out and nearly died. Rodgers spent months looking for Nasyrova without success. However, he eventually learned that he wasn’t the only one interested. Herman Weisberg, a former New York City detective turned private investigator, was also looking for Nasyrova in connection with a murder case in Russia. Weisberg was able to piece together Viktoria’s whereabouts thanks to a Facebook photo that showed her reflection in her sunglasses.

“She’s not a shooter. She’s not a stabber,” says Weisberg of Nasyrova, “but I haven’t seen someone this ruthless in a long time.”

“I’m not a killer,” Nasyrova tells Van Sant. “I’m a woman, only woman.”

48 HOURS: “The Case of the Poison Cheesecake” is produced by Josh Yager. Stephen A. McCain is the development producer. Richard Barber is the producer-editor. Morgan Canty is the associate producer. Patti Aronofsky is the senior producer. Nancy Kramer is the executive editor. Judy Tygard is the executive producer.

48 Hours: The Case of the Poison Cheesecake airs Saturday June 3, 2023 at 10.00pm on CBS
