The Dutch embassy in Malaysia has asked Interpol to investigate the death of Ms Ivana Smit, a Dutch model who was found dead after falling from the 20th floor of a Dang Wangi condominium last Friday (Dec 8).
Dang Wangi OCPD assistant commissioner Shaharuddin Abdullah said that police have classified the case as one of sudden death, reported The Star.
But the family of the dutch model have their reservations about her fall being an accident.
Ms Smit’s father, Mr Marcel Smit, reportedly told Dutch news outlets that there were blue marks resembling fingerprints around her neck when he viewed her body.
Saying that the family “wanted justice”, he added that “the police are doing nothing with this information and only want to close the case quickly”.
According to the police, Ms Smit was intoxicated at the time, with blood tests revealing the presence of alcohol and drugs in her system.
Her last form of communication was a selfie sent to her boyfriend at 7.25am, informing him that she had gone home with an American couple after a night out.
It is believed that she fell off the balcony at around 10am, and her naked body was found on the sixth floor balcony, but the American couple only made the call to the police at 3pm.
Mr Smit was also quoted telling RTL Nieuws that it was “very strange that the American couple did nothing from 10am to 3pm. Ivana’s belongings were still in their apartment”.
Ms Smit won second runner-up in the Malaysia Supermodel Search 2014, when she was 15.
