Supermodel Dies After Nine Story Plunge

6/29/2008 10:54 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A Kazakh supermodel who appeared on the cover of Vogue and Elle magazines fell to her death from the ninth floor of her apartment building in lower Manhattan yesterday afternoon.

Ruslana Korshunova, 20, was found on Water Street in the Financial District wearing jeans and a tank top, and witnesses, including one who spoke to diaday.com, say they heard a loud noise and then discovered that a body lay in the middle of the street. One witness tells TMZ that he originally thought the woman had been hit by a car.

Cops say they are investigating the incident.

In the article it was written she was wearing jeans and a tank top. What brand of jeans was she wearing? Did anyone take a close up picture of the label? I heard a rumor the tank top was off brand, if it was it only compounds the tragedy.

How do you 'fall' from an appartment and end up in the middle of the street. Falling is straight down! Maybe the balconies on this building project out 50 feet?

She attempted a triple gainer with a twist, the Russian judge gave her a 9.

I seriously doubt she jumped on her own. I believe she was pushed out. Speed up the investigation NYPD!!! The odds are all against a voluntary jump.

The old saying.
No matter how beautiful a woman is, some guy someplace is sick and tired of her crap.

"A Kazakh supermodel who appeared on the cover of Vogue and Elle magazines fell to her death from the ninth floor of her apartment building in lower Manhattan..." Nope, not suicide. Not with that level of success by age 20. Accident? Possibility and more likely explanation than suicide. Look into this one carefully, NYPD.
