Moment Russian Married model, Sofia Olifrenko, plunges 60 feet to her death at hotel
Russian model was found dead following a 60-foot fall from her hotel balcony.
Sofia Olifrenko, 24, died instantly after plunging from the fifth-floor room in Istanbul, Turkey, on July 18.
A Turkish man, who had arrived at the hotel with the married model, was taken into custody but has since been released.
CCTV from earlier that day shows the model appearing to stagger down a narrow street and holding onto the wall.
The man, who has only been identified as F.K. in local media, said in his police statement: “I don’t know the woman’s name, we met on the street. “She was crying. I took her to her hotel room.”
The model checked into the hotel under the false name of Alexandra V, according to local reports.
She married Romanian male model Istvan Sarkozy in February and he has since told how his wife arrived in Istanbul on May 9 for modelling work.
He said he had not been in contact with her in the three days before her death.
Turkish media reported that Sofia might have had problems with her husband because she thought he was cheating on her, but he denied this.
