36-year-old former Playboy model Christina Carlin-Kraft was found strangled to death in her apartment in Pennsylvania, according to reports.
Police reported that they found Carlin-Kraft’s body in the bedroom of her apartment, and the incident was considered a homicide, as the cause of death was “ligature strangulation.” According to Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin R. Steele, there are no suspects yet named.
ABC Action News reported that the model had recently reported to police that some of her handbags and jewelry had been stolen from her home, and were later found in Southwest Philadelphia. However, there has been no known connections between the robbery and the homicide.
Officials are also looking into the possibility that the model was murdered by a crazed, stalker who was obsessed with her photos on social media.
While police are still investigating the murder, Carlin-Kraft’s family an friends mourn the loss of her. A relative told Philly.com:
“She was just a good person. And our family misses her dearly.”
And, a close friend said:
“She was just delightful, the sweetest person. The whole thing is just shocking.”
