|First Appearance||"Russian Love Poem|
Alexander Strizhov was a Russian immigrant who claimed to have murdered Andrew Harlin.
Alexander was born in Russia. His father drank and smoke and slept with other women in front of his wife in the same bedroom. Despite this, Alexander described him as a good man with a great heart. His mother followed him to Siberia.
Alexander brought Tanya Ivanoa to America.
He would later confess to the murder Andrew Harlin, though he was initially cleared because he said he shot him when Harlin was strangled. It was however revealed that he did kill Harlin and later killed Sonya Pietrovicz and her aunt.
