Police found no signs of a struggle in her apartment and concluded
that the supermodel’s death is a suicide although media suggests that she may

At least one of her friends found it hard to believe that
Korshunova had committed suicide because she apparently was "on the top of
the world” after returning from a modeling gig in Paris not long ago.

One posting reads revealing her anger:
"I'm a bitch. I'm a witch. I don't care what you say ... I know why my

Korshunova was born in Almaty, Kazakh SSR and drew the
attention from the fashion industry in 2003 when All Asia Magazine published a

Debbie Jones of Models 1 tracked down and signed up the then

including IMG, Beatrice, Traffic Models, Marilyn Models and iCasting Moscow.
Korshunova had modeled for the magazine covers of Elle

a number of organizations including Blugirl by Blumarine, Clarins, Ghost,
Girbaud and Kenzo Accessories, to name a few.
