Prince William County is reeling from a double homocide where a Bulargian mother and her 8 year old son were brutally stabbed to death in Dale City. The mother, Slavka Naydenova , had been married to Lester Wilson and had an 8 year old son, Paul Wilson. Police are being very close-mouthed about motive and details of the case. Some rather disturbing facts have emerged. Naydenova’s brother had been murdered, execution style, in 2003.
According to Manassas News and Messenger:
Naydenova’s family ties don’t appear to have anything to do with her death, Ebert said. In fact, little is known about her, except that she and her first husband — Lester Wilson — bought the house on Hanover Court on Nov. 3, 2000.
Ebert said Naydenova met her current husband in Bulgaria in March 2003, at the funeral for her brother, Iliya Pavlov. Her husband, now a janitor, worked as one of Pavlov’s bodyguards.
Pavlov was Bulgaria’s wealthiest businessman and was alleged to be the head of the country’s mafia. A year before his death, he was named one of 25 billionaires in Central and Eastern Europe, according to the Sofia News Agency in Bulgaria.
He was shot to death in his office in March 2003.
On Wednesday, Pavel Naydenov — father of the Bulgarian tycoon and the slain Dale City woman — was quoted telling the Sofia News Agency that he thought his daughter’s death may have been a mafia hit.
“She could have had problems with making payments to banks, but banks hardly ever kill people over default loans,” said Naydenova’s father.
A suspect has been arrested. A Russian woman named Natalia Wilson who just happens to be married to Lester Wilson, father of deceased little Paul Wilson, currently. The couple has been married about a year. Natalia has been described as a Russian ‘mail order’ bride. Again, no motive given. There have been suggestions of jealously, money, and other things causing friction when families divorce and remarry. To date, all motives have been speculative. It is very difficult to sort facts. Facts seem to vary a great deal between the Washington Post, Manassas News & Messenger, and the Sofia Newspaper, Novinite.
The more about the father of the deceased woman is quoted in Novinite:
Pavel Naydenov, father and grandfather of murdered Bulgarian Slavka Naydenova, sister of killed Bulgarian tycoon Iliya Pavlov, and her son, 8-year-old Paul Wilson has spoken of his grief.
Naydenov told local journalists that he had failed to do the main duty of a father – to protect his own children. He also added that no one should link the murder of his daughter in the US in a personal fight on Monday with the assassination of his son in Sofia in 2003 and that Darina Pavlova – the wife of Iliya – was also not linked in any way.
Pavel added that Slavka will be buried alongside her mother in the Bulgarian village Mirovyane, near Sofia.
It makes one wonder why this Bulgarian tycoon didn’t help his daughter with the finances he mentions.
Much has been said on this blog about how the crime in Prince William County has become increasingly urban. Now we have to add international to our list of descriptors. Police have been working with the Russian FBI and with Bulgarian interpreters to solve this case. This is not the time to cut back on cop money. Make the financial slashes some place else.
