      How do we know that Ruslana Korshunova wasn’t thrown off her roof? A jilted lover? The mob?

      Apparently there were many witnesses, and police say no signs of a fight were found in her apartment…
      Very sad…

      apparent that she had everything going for her.. great looks.. wealth.. but if she did commit suicide the reason could of been anything from a broken relationship to deep seeded emotional problems..
      what a waste of talent and beauty…
      god rest her soul

      Bizarre story…..my take is that somehow drugs were involved. These poor models starve themselves….coke themselves up with nose candy or typically are prescribed tons of different pills by their legions of Doctor’s. Not to generalize or stereotype–but depression is often a common factor in many Supermodels lives.

      So—mixing drugs with emotions….sleepless days and nights, relentless schedules, heavy international travel….add up to what we read about above.

      RIP…another beautiful person taken too soon.

      RE: # 1 NEW YORK Blues—-You raise many good questions/points…. —–> GO SOX GO CELTS GO PATS !!! LOL had to throw that in there.

      The news said she had been really depressed and felt lost. This poor girl, only 21 years old…and so beautiful…It’s heartbreaking when one feels that suicide is their only option…I hope she is at peace now…

      No doubt victim of a Russian Mafia-controlled teenage-model flesh-peddling
      organization.” Those bastards are all around Brooklyn and Lower Manhatten and have there hands in the fasion industry.
      From what I understand there was no autopsy the body was whisked back to Russia

      I saw this reported on Geraldo, it was disgusting, you could see her arms being lifted on to her chest and a graphic picture of her face with blood coming from the side of her mouth, i thought this highly inappropriate and an invasion on a families tradged,I would have expected a reputable broadcaster to blur the image.
