                            Dutch model's threesome partners allegedly threw her nude body out of balcony and made it look like suicide, says lawyer

The lawyer representing the family of an 18-year-old Dutch model who is believed to have fallen to her death from a 20th-floor apartment in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, in December 2017 accused an American-Kazakh couple of making her death look like a suicide.

Ivana Smit, who at the time of her death had an upcoming role on Belgium's Next Top Model, was found dead and wearing no clothes on the sixth floor of an up-market apartment building on December 7, 2017. 45-year-old Alexander Johnson and his wife, 31-year-old Luna Almaz, were the last to see the teen alive, with footage captured at a nightclub at around 5:22 am that morning showing the former carrying Smit in his arms through a hallway. Then, at 7:30 am, Smit sent her boyfriend a selfie of herself with Almaz.

According to autopsy reports, Smit fell to her death around 10 am that day, just a little over two hours after that selfie, though police were quick to rule the incident as 'sudden death,' meaning it was either the result of an accident or suicide.

However, details emerged later about how both Johnson and Almaz regularly had threesomes with Smit that often involved all manners of sex toys, with the latter even admitting that she had sex with the 18-year-old on the morning of her death. Both left the country in the days following the incident.

While the police ruled her death as accidental, her family and their lawyer have maintained that she died under suspicious circumstances. Free Malaysia Today reported that, during a five-month inquest into her passing, the lawyer, SN Nair, said evidence suggested Johnson and Luna had made her death look like a suicide because they were in "a state of panic."

"Perhaps being unable to explain the presence of narcotics in her body or to avoid being unable to answer many questions, as well as not wanting the issue of threesome sex and the use of sex toys to come up, the couple decided to make the death look like a suicide by physically carrying her to the balcony and throwing her body over," Nair speculated.

In a written statement submitted at the Kuala Lumpur Coroner's Court, Nair wrote that such was the height of the couple's depravity and inhumanity, that they didn't even consider rushing her to a hospital or calling for an ambulance that could have saved the teen's life.

During the course of the inquest, the court also heard varying testimonies about how Smit died and whether she did indeed fall to her death. A postmortem by a Dutch pathologist found bruises on the teen's arms, indicating a struggle had taken place, though two Malaysian pathologists disagreed with the theory and said it could have also happened because she fell from a height.

Nair pointed to how traces of drugs like cocaine, cannabis, alcohol, and polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) were found in her system, the combined effect of which could have knocked her out cold. He also brought up the testimony of the couple's maid, who said Almaz had asked him to clean up the apartment on the night of the teen's death, suggesting it was an act of "wiping away evidence."

According to Free Malaysia Today, Coroner Mahyon Talib will reach a verdict in the case on January 22 and will then rule if Smit suffered an accidental death, misadventure, suicide, natural causes, or unlawful killing.

If the death is ruled an unlawful killing, police can seek a warrant of arrest from Interpol to arrest and extradite Johnson and Almaz.
