Ruslana Korshunova: Model plunges to death, suspected suicide

Ruslana Korshunova: Model plunges to death, suspected suicide Vogue cover model Ruslana Korshunova, 20, is thought to have jumped to her death from her Manhattan apartment, it was reported today. Speculations emerge that the Kazakh model committed suicide, although police said only that the woman was discovered dead in front of an apartment building in downtown Manhattan. But witnesses say they saw Ruslana Korshunova plunge to her death from the ninth-floor balcony in the building on Saturday afternoon. According to local media reports, the police found no signs of struggle in Korshunova's apartment and she is believed to have committed a suicide.

 The window from which she fell had a balcony, which had construction netting around it that appeared to have been cut. The model was barefoot and dressed in blue jeans and a purple tank top when she fell to her death. A friend of the model said that Korshunova had just returned from a modeling gig in Paris and seemed to be "on top of the world". Ruslana Korshunova, a native of Alma-Ata, Kazakhstan, had been profiled in British Vogue in recent years as a new face to watch, and she was featured in ads by Vera Wang, Marc Jacobs, Christian Dior and DKNY. Korshunova has also appeared on the cover of the European edition of Elle.
