Ukrainian dancer who appeared on German talent show murdered, body dumped in the Rhine

A woman from Ukraine, who appeared on Germany's version of 'Britain's Got Talent' to showcase her dancing skills, was reportedly murdered as authorities found her remains floating in the Rhine. The body of 33-year-old Alla Klyshta was found May 18 in the water near the town of Rust, Germany.

A 30-year-old man was reportedly arrested in the case as authorities suspected him of having committed the crime. German media reported that the man detained is Klyshta's former boyfriend. He has not yet been identified. 

An investigation is continuing in the case and no charges have yet been filed as authorities appealed to the public for more information, according to Lahrer Zaitung. Klyshta, born in Ukraine, was best known in Germany for her appearance in 2010 on 'Das Supertalent,' the German equivalent of 'Britain's Got Talent.'

She reportedly also held the record in Ukraine for the most hula-hoops twirled at once. The 33-year-old made appearances in multiple shows in the Got Talent franchise, including in Ukrainian and Romanian versions of the show. She also used to work on cruise ships.  Reports stated that at the time of her death, Klyshta was performing at the Europa-Park in a show called 'Night Beat Angels.'

The dancer was reported missing at the end of April after she did not appear at a performance venue in Frankfurt. Shortly after this, a manhunt was launched and subsequently, a passerby spotted her body in the Rhine two weeks later. Officials later confirmed the body was Klyshta's. The authorities also established that she was killed before her body was dumped into the river. 

The circumstances of her death have not yet been revealed, although an autopsy has been completed. German singer and entertainer Chris Kolonko, who met Klyshta and the suspect last year, while talking to the local media said her former boyfriend "was very nice" but their relationship appeared turbulent.
