A webcam model has died after an 80ft plunge from the balcony of an eighth-floor party pad while on holiday.
Russian model Evgenia Smirnova, 37, suffered fatal head injuries along with a broken leg in the terrifying drop at a residential complex in Phuket, Thailand.
Police are currently DNA testing clumps of hair found in Smirnova's hand, and have reason to believe that the webcam model had been attending a "sex, drugs and alcohol party" at the eighth-floor Emerald Terrace complex.
The model had arrived in Phuket on May 25, and was reportedly streaming content on her adult site shortly before her death.
Reports indicate that this was not Smirnova's first trip to Thailand, with the Russian national residing in Moscow after moving from her hometown of Nizhny Novgorod.
Following the tragic death of Smirnova, another Russian woman, Natalia Kosenkova, 35 and two men, American Jamaal Antwaun Smith, 38, and Jordanian national Ahmad Radi Mustafa Alatoom, 28, have been detained and are being questioned in connection with her death.
Police reports indicate that there was evidence of "sex, drugs and alcohol" at the residence Smirnova fell from.

Kosenkova, a model and DJ, claimed that she had been released and that Smirnova's death was an "unfortunate incident," but no further details were given.
She said her lawyer had asked her not to say anything, but said: "The case is not complicated because we are not guilty.
"The only thing I can say is that this was an unfortunate incident, but it was not a murder, and none of the people involved are to blame.
"We were held in a cage, but they let us go."

The 35-year-old also denied claims that the party had been a sex-oriented romp filled with booze and illicit substances, saying: "I didn't know the girl, she just came to the party where we were.
"And she called her friend [Ahmad Radi Mustafa Alatoom], who came, too, and behaved inappropriately. I can say that me and my friend [Jamaal Antwaun Smith], who I have known for a long time, behaved with dignity and decency.
"I am just a tourist here…I've been living here for five months. I’m an ordinary tourist. It was a regular boozefest – someone dies here every day."
Police Lieutenant Colonel Chomphunuch Anantayakun said that Simonova "might have accidentally fallen from the balcony" but warned "it could be a homicide resulting from an argument.
"The hair in the woman's hand will go through DNA testing to find who it belonged to.”
