Miami, Florida ( –  A prominent fashion model, Ruslana Korshunova, fell out of a window of her apartment in lower Manhattan. The office of the medical examiner of Manhattan reported that officers have ruled the cause of death of the 20-year old model as suicide. The police said that no note has been found as yet but there have been reports of rips in her jeans, which are common during a fall.

Ruslana Korshunova was originally from the former Russian Republic, Kazakhstan, and has appeared on the front covers of the European editions of popular magazines like Vogue and Elle and in advertisements for Vera Wang, DKNY and Marc Jacobs, in addition to other designers. Known by her green eyes and long hair, the model died when she fell from her the 9th floor balcony of her apartment at 130 Water Street at about 2:30 pm on Saturday.

The spokesperson for the medical examiner, Megan Cuccia, said that Korshunova suffered various blunt impact wounds that may be the result of her fall. The construction net that hung on front of the 12-story building had a hole in it when Ruslana fell. The officials from the Buildings Department of the city could not say whether the fall was the cause of the hole and if it was, then the net had not prevented her from falling. The doorman of the building said that she had moved into the building 2 months ago.

IMG Models, one of the top-tier international agencies, represented Korshunova in New York. The agency also lists supermodels like Heidi Klum and Kate Moss as its clients. - Press Release Distribution Service
