Appears in Criminal Case
First appeared Case #41: An Elementary Murder (s1)

Irina Nemovska ​(Rus: Ирина Немоваска; 1992-2013) was the victim in An Elementary Murder (Case #40 of Grimsborough).


Irina was a 21-year-old au pair (nanny) in charge of taking care of the Mills family, in particular, Sarah Mills. She was under the employment of Dennis and Janice Mills. Irina had blonde hair, blue eyes, and a black bra underneath a pink leopard print dress.

Murder details

Irina was found sprawled over a child's desk in the elementary school's classroom. Her throat had been slit with a sharp object. After Jones and the player finished investigating the murder scene, they sent the victim's body to Nathan for autopsy. The tear was unusually thick that the killer attempted to decapitate the victim. Nathan registered the cause of death as extreme blood loss, but found a thick layer of salbutamol on the victim's eyelashes, a chemical found in asthma inhalers, which meant the killer had asthma.

Alex informed the team that Irina was threatened the day before her death, his uncle witnessed Irina arguing with someone over her cell phone as he overheard Irina's heated argument outside the school bus, which was the place of their next lead, in which Irina met her demise in the classroom a day later.

Later, while searching Sarah Mills' bedroom, the team found a pencil case with child's scissors inside it. The scissors was full of blood and the team collected a blood sample from it. They then sent the blood sample for analysis. The result of the analysis confirmed that the child's scissors was the murder weapon, and on the scissors' handle, there were traces of sugar based powder used in the confection of a candy named Sweet Hearts and since Sarah was suffering from a type of diabetes (which prevents her from eating sugar under any circumstances), it was obvious that the killer used to eat Sweet Hearts.

Killer and motives

The killer turned out to be elementary school teacher Jenny Honeycomb.

Jenny was from a social circle which forbade people from revealing any LGBT relationship in any form or fashion. In court, Jenny admitted that she was in a closeted LGBT relationship with Irina. Irina wanted to make their relationship public but Jenny was scared of the repercussions this would have on her. On the day of Irina's death, Jenny asked Irina to come over in her classroom during recess, she had brought a gun hidden in a teddy bear with her to threaten Irina so that she can end the discreet LGBT relationship since she believed Irina betrayed her feelings for Jenny in front of her children and thought by threatening her, Irina would leave Grimsborough. Jenny was not planning to shoot at her but near enough so that she would be scared, but the gun was broken. Irina, thinking Jenny really wanted to kill her, then jumped at her; Jenny tried to fend her off with her inhaler but it only made Irina fight harder. As Irina pinned Jenny to a wall, Jenny grabbed a pair of child's scissors from one of the desks and stabbed the victim to death.
