  GrahamClayton: Khalilbeili died in 1965 at the relatively young age of 35. Was it due to natural causes or an accidental death?

  Chessical: One account, found on a Russian web-site, is that Khalilbeili had a friend who was a freestyle wrestler. The friend as a drunken joke struck Khalilbeili on the head; whereupon he died on the spot.
Apr-27-15  zanzibar: There is a page in Russian, describing chess in the 1950's and beyond in Azerbaijan:

Another player is also mentioned, Oleg Pavlenko (Павленко), who was slated to go to <URS Cup (1970)>:

<Sometimes the humor wore not a valid character. Players gathered around him, Bagirov told with humor, as Oleg Pavlenko beaten to death somewhere in the lake and dumped in a ravine. He lay there until morning, and it happened to come upon some fisherman.>

Sep-21-15  tjipa: I found out about this master when happened to stumble upon a fantastically interesting Gipslis-Khalilbeili game of 1961 (not present on this DB). It's a pity so much of interesting chess heritage disappears unrecorded properly and/or unnoticed. OK, this young man, an unprecedented talent in Azeri chess, drank too much... Still, I wish there were more of his games available. After all, he was a formative figure in the environment that a few years later produced none other that Kasparov.
