Daily Mail reports that a stunning 31-year-old model allegedly burnt herself to death because she thought she was too old to find a job.
The scorched remains of the beautiful lady identified as Irina Livshun were discovered at her apartment in the city of Almaty in southern Kazakhstan.
The police were reported to have found a gas canister, which they believe she used to set herself alight, beside the corpse.
Irina was said to have moved to the city when she was a teenager to pursue a career in modelling and according to her friends she had been successful to an extent in finding lucrative jobs with a number of fashion companies and achieving local fame. A friend of hers stated that she had been quite famous and took part in many fashion shows, however, she recently had some troubles with her job.
She reportedly began having financial troubles in November last year after her contracts began to dry up and as a result stopped meeting with friends. Police spokesman Saltanat Azirbek added: ‘Irina’s relatives had told us she had been suffering from depression for a long time because she lost her job and was unemployed for several months.’ He also revealed that the model had threatened to commit suicide several times before.
Friends and fans of the model have taken to her social media account on VKontakte (the Russian equivalent of Facebook) to share their sympathy.
