Last month, Russian guitarist Andrey Suchilin was removed from a flight going from Spain to the Netherlands after passengers complained he had an intolerable body odor. This Monday, the man was pronounced dead.

As has learned, Suchilin’s bad smell came from a tissue infection called necrosis. According to Newsweek, the odor coming from his body was reportedly so bad that passengers near him began to faint.

On May 30—one day after the plane made an emergency landing due to his smell— Suchilin wrote a Facebook post poking fun at his disease.

“The tragic and comic component of this whole situation is that I caught a disease, which (let’s not say how and why) makes a man quite stinky,” he told his followers at the time.

Necrosis is a condition in which the body’s tissue dies after being deprived of oxygen. It can occur after a severe injury, deep vein thrombosis, frostbite or violent infection.


Sadly, Suchilin’s necrosis grew much worse in the days following the plane incident, and eventually spread to areas such as his kidneys, heart, and lungs.

His heartbroken wife, Lidia, announced the tragic news this Monday, June 25.

“Andrei’s gone. Alas,” she wrote on Facebook.
