What made the model known as the "Russian Rapunzel" jump out of a window this weekend?
Police found no signs of a struggle. And friends said she had not been acting suicidal.
Now the Daily Telegraph has printed her posts on social networking websites, which seem to show the young woman had feelings of being lost, confused and unloved and suffered from mood swings. Which seems pretty normal for a 20-year-old girl. But was it serious enough to make her jump out a window?
An earlier posting, quoted by the New York Daily News, she wrote: "It hurts, as if someone took a part of me, tore it out, mercilessly stomped all over and threw it out."
One cryptic entry in March reads: "My dream is to fly. Oh, my rainbow it is too high."
Other postings revealed anger. "I’m a bitch. I’m a witch. I don’t care what you say … I know why my other relationships didn’t work out, ’cause I’m unpredictable. "
Her most recent posting, quoted by the New York Daily News, sounds like a discourse on the theme of love.
"Love is the sun, desire – only flash," she wrote.
"Desire dazzles, and the sun gives life."
"Love does not take away from one in order to give to another."
The 5-foot-8, long-haired beauty had been sending money home to her family in the former Soviet republic of Kazakhstan.
She’d been in ads for DKNY, Vera Wang and Christian Dior, and was hailed as "the next big thing" in Vogue three years ago. To see a gallery of her modeling photos, click HERE.
She had reportedly watched the movie "Ghost" with a former boyfriend the night of her death.
