It wasn't being one of Qaddafi's Praetorian Bodyguard that did her in, nor her joining the rebels against Qaddafy. No, it was her desire, once in Cairo, to enter showbiz. Naturally that shamed the family, and what else could her brother do but kill her? What would you have done?

Egyptian authorities are investigating the killing of a former female bodyguard of ousted Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, She was found stabbed to death in her Cairo apartment.

Egyptian officials said Tuesday Zahraa al-Bouaishi, 31, was found dead in a pool of blood in her apartment in Nasr City district in Cairo over the weekend.

Authorities suspect al-Bouaishi's brother. The officials said al-Bouaishi was planning to begin an acting career in Cairo, considered a disgrace by some in her family. The officials were speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to reporters.

Al-Bouaishi defected from Gadhafi's regime, then helped the rebels and international allies with information about some of his forces' weapons caches. She later moved to Cairo from Tunisia.
