Mystery surrounds the death of young Colombian model found naked in the street
Mystery surrounds the death of a young Colombian model found completely naked on the street in front of her house.
Stephanie Magon Ramirez, 23, was found by a horrified neighbour in the Mexican capital of Mexico City.
At first the authorities suspected foul play, with reports she had been killed.
The president of the Superior Tribunal of the city, Edgar Elias Azar, said: "She suffered what appear to have been numerous blows, or in other words, she was beaten to death."
But then the death was labelled as an accident in a startling turnaround.
Investigators said new evidence had come to light indicating that she had fallen from the roof of her apartment building, crashing 40 feet to the ground, while drunk and high on drugs.
An employee from the modelling agency said: "There is no doubt that she had been drinking and taking drugs and as a result she fell."
"We all know that she went out the night before partying, she was seen in a bad state in the toilet and when they took her home she was so drunk and drugged that she simply fell from the terrace," the employee added.
There has been no official indication from the autopsy that the model had alcohol in her blood, although authorities now seem to be treating the case as an accident.
The dead woman's friends in Colombia said she did not abuse these substances, however.
One said: "She did not take drugs, and I never saw her drunk."
Another local reported that Stephanie had bruises on her face on the side which did not strike the ground.
And some sources report that her missing teeth were not found where she fell.
One neighbour added: "If you look you can see it is impossible to fall off the terrace and end up in the middle of the street where she was found.
"To go so far you would have to launch yourself into the air or be thrown."
The mother-of-one had moved from Cali in Colombia to work for a local modelling agency before her tragic death.
The New Icon Model agency had offered her a six-month contract, so the young mother left her husband and four-year-old son in her home country and stopped her studies at the National Institute of Telecommunications to fulfil her dream of becoming a TV presenter.
She stayed in cheap rented accommodation with several other aspiring models.
Jennifer Acosta Ganadora, 33, described how she found "her boots, bag, underwear and handbag," on the terrace.
Her husband said: "On Friday we did not talk to her and on Saturday morning we received the news, we have no idea what happened."
The body of the young model is still in Mexico and will be returned to her home country once all examinations are finished.
