New surveillance camera footage surfaced showing Ivana Smit in a club in Malaysia just hours before her death. The footage shows American Alexander Johnson carrying the 18-year-old Dutch model out of the club. Lawyer Sebas Diekstra posted the photo on Twitter.
The family of Ivana Smit asked the Dutch Public Prosecution Service to investigate the young model's death in Malaysia early this month. The request was made after Dutch forensic pathologist Frank de Groot did a first autopsy on the young woman's body and found that some of her injuries are not consistent with a fall from a great height, the Telegraaf reports.
The injuries found on Dutch model Ivana Smit's body, are not immediately consistent with a fall from a great height, according to forensic pathologist Frank de Groot.
The Malaysian police released the body of Dutch model Ivana Smit on Thursday. The 18-year-old woman's body is now with a funeral director in Kuala Lumpur. When she will return to the Netherlands is not yet clear, but her family believes it will be soon. "The hope now is that the repatriation will happen quickly and without obstacles. We are extremely happy about this news", her father Marcel said to the Telegraaf.
The family of Dutch model Ivana Smit hired lawyer Sebas Diekstra to help them find out exactly how their 18-year-old daughter died in Malaysia nearly two weeks ago. The family is struggling to get any information from the Malaysian authorities about the investigation, and this is causing them acute stress. The young woman's father, Marcel, was hospitalized on Monday for heart- and blood pressure problems, shortly after telling the Telegraaf that they need help, according to the newspaper.
The Dutch embassy in Malaysia asked European police service Interpol to look into the death of 19-year-old Ivana Smit in Kuala Lumpur last week. The Dutch model's naked body was found on the sixth floor balcony of her hotel on Thursday. The local police believe she fell from a room on the 20th fall in an accident, RTL Nieuws reports.
According to newspaper AD, Ivana called her boyfriend around 7:25 a.m. on Thursday and told him that she was with an American couple after a night out. Her naked body was found around 3:00 p.m.
