Thief struck after bodybuilder Zyzz’s death in sauna

AMATEUR bodybuilder Aziz Sergeyevich Shavershian had his belongings stolen after he died from a heart attack in Thailand a week ago.

The pin-up bodybuilder from Sydney known as "Zyzz", died after using a sauna on August 9. His mother said he had an undiagnosed heart condition.

It has since emerged that his possessions, including his laptop, wallet and clothes, were stolen from his Bangkok hotel room after his death.

A friend of the 22-year-old commerce student, who asked not to be named, said there were records showing that Mr Shavershian had spent $20,000 while  in Thailand.

The Shavershian family is  trying to raise money for his funeral.

The online bodybuilding community has proposed a "Zyzz Memorial" next Saturday,  with  supporters   posting photographs of themselves on the web in "Zyzz poses".

Mr Shavershian's older brother, Said, 25, was fined $479  this month after pleading guilty to steroid possession.
