Anton Ilichev Celebrity Millennium Officer Hanging Death – On Thursday, December 6, 2018, Anton Ilichev from Kherson, Ukraine, a suite manager aboard Celebrity Cruises ship Celebrity Millennium, was allegedly found hanging in his cabin’s bathroom and was declared dead by the medical staff.
Anton Ilichev was well-liked aboard the cruise ship and had many friends. He was unmarried and his home was located on the Black Sea Kherson, Ukraine port at the Dnieper River.
His social media posts show, there was no sign of a work place issue or depression, contrary to [fake] ‘news’ reports alleging Anton did not get needed counseling aboard the ship. One of his last posts online a few days before his death he said, “There’s no place I’d rather be!!!! Celebrity Millennium ROCKS!!! Every person I’ve met have a place in my heart forever. These people made me see the life in different perspective. Love you all.”
Celebrity Millennium was due to arrive in Singapore on December 7 as part of a 14-night cruise in Southeast Asia which had departed from Hong Kong on November 23.
Editor’s note: It would be a rushed assumption, though Ilichev was allegedly found hanging in his cabin bathroom, this was a suicide. This particular type of bathroom hanging death is often ‘accidental’ among many young men. It was to be the beginning of his scheduled vacation the next day and there were no outward signs he was anything but happy. Since, we don’t know the condition of the body when found, whether he was fully dressed or not, we have listed the death as ‘suicidal behavior’, not suicide.
