Kazakh supermodel RUSLANA KORSHUNOVA plunged to her death from a New York apartment on Saturday (28Jun08) in an apparent suicide.
The 20-year-old, who graced the runways for some of the world's top designers and fashion magazines including Vogue and Elle, was found dead outside a residential building in Manhattan.
Witnesses have told police they saw a woman jump from a ninth-floor balcony, and officials are expected to give a verdict of suicide following an inquest.
Detective Martin Speechley of the New York Police Department says, "No criminality is suspected. Her front door was locked from the inside. There was no sign of a struggle.
"She appears to have made an effort to get off her balcony as some construction netting had been cut."
A representative for Korshunova's modelling agency, IMG, which also handles Heidi Klum and Kate Moss paid tribute to the late star, saying, "We're shocked and our heart goes out to her family."
