Murat Ismailovich Nasyrov (Russian: Мурат Исмаилович Насыров; Uyghur: مۇرات ناسىروۋ (ULY: Murat Nasirow)) (13 December 1969, Alma-Ata, Kazakh SSR, Soviet Union – 19 January 2007, Moscow, Russia) was a Russian pop singer of Uyghur ethnicity.
He committed suicide by jumping from a balcony. There were reports that it was the result of ingesting LSD, possibly dissolved in some alcohol he drank a few hours before his death. According to these allegations, it occurred in a VIP restaurant bar in Moscow, although the postmortem examination of his body did not reveal any traces of alcohol or drugs.
Nasyrov's supposed suicide has been disputed. Recent reports in the Russian press have implied that he may have been the victim of foul play, as family members and friends insist that Nasyrov was not depressed and had never considered suicide before. Some suspect that he was given an LSD tablet in a glass of wine at a club, and after drinking it, he experienced hallucinations and leapt off his balcony.
