"There's no way she would have killed herself. She loved life so much," the New York Daily News quoted her, as saying. "She was my best friend. I talked to her [Friday] night and we were talking all the gossip," she added.
The 20-year-old was found dead outside her downtown Manhattan building on June 28 afternoon after eyewitnesses described seeing a body plunge from a balcony. "All I saw was something moving out of the corner of my eye, and then boom. It sounded like a bass drum when she hit the ground," Steve Metzger said.
Investigators said there were no signs of a struggle inside Korshunova's apartment and believe she jumped from her balcony, according to a law enforcement source. And on June 29, police ruled the model's death a suicide. Megan Cuccia, a spokeswoman for the city's medical examiner, said that Korshunova died from blunt impact injuries.
Police said her family had not yet been notified.
