The parents of 19-year-old model, Ivana Esther Robert Smit, who was found dead at the balcony of a sixth floor condo at Jalan Dang Wangi, are speaking out about their daughter’s death.
It is believed the Dutch model “suddenly” fell from a balcony from the 20th floor of the upscale condominium in Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia on Thursday. She was reportedly visiting a man and his wife when the fatal fall occurred.
Smit’s death was ruled as “sudden,” by officials who say they think there was no criminal activity related to the case.
