A former Playboy model has been found strangled to death in her apartment in a Philadelphia suburb.
Christina Carlin-Kraft, 36, was discovered by police on 22 August in the bedroom of the home in Ardmore, Pennsylvania.
Lower Merion police say officers found her body in the first-floor unit at 21:15 local time on Wednesday.
The Montgomery County Coroner’s Office determined the cause of death to be homicide by “ligature strangulation”.
The flat is owned by her Wall Street banker boyfriend, whom she dated for nine years, reports the Philadelphia Inquirer.
Authorities have withheld the victim’s name until next-of-kin are notified, but family members confirmed her death to CBS Philadelphia.
“In her Model Mayhem profile, Ms Carlin-Kraft records New York City as her home and refers to past work with Vanity Fair, Maxim Magazine, Victoria’s Secret and Playboy.”
