Ruslana Korshunova is known throughout the modelling industry for her untimely death which occurred under very suspicious and questionable circumstances from the ninth floor balcony of her apartment located in the Financial District of Manhattan in New York city. Ruslana Korshunova was a Kazakhstani model who had become famous as a young model and was considered by many fashion designers and magazines as one of the top new models in 2005.
At the age of 21 on June 28, 2008 Ruslana Korshunova was found dead in New York outside of her apartment from what was ruled a suicide but for many within the modelling industry is a death that seems a product of murder. There are so many unresolved questions associated with her death that many within the modelling industry are hoping that Hollywood considers making a movie to address some of these unresolved questions.
Many outside observers of the modelling industry have tried to attribute her death to her feeling "lost" as a person and disillusioned as a model but this explanation is hard to fathom for many because this beautiful young woman was living in a beautiful apartment in New York City and she had just returned from a modelling job in Paris. Ruslana Korshunova was at the height of her career as she was enjoying both fame and money and travelling the world as an international model.
The night Ruslana Korshunova died she had watched the movie "Ghost" with her boyfriend only several hours before and did not display any sort of depression. However, when she was found outside her apartment building her long, ash-blond hair that she had become known for had been chopped unevenly which is very strange for a model known for that feature.
The death of Ruslana Korshunova has brought forth many questions about organized crime, modelling and prostitution-rings and would be a very interesting movie. In 2014 the story of Ruslana Korshunova might reach Hollywood screens and if it does the New York police force and the influence of organized crime may come under intense scrutiny which for many insiders in the modelling industry, is long overdue.
