A woman committed suicide on Water Street in New York City’s Financial District yesterday afternoon, and the Murdoch Press’s New York Post is reporting it was Kazakh model Ruslana Korshunova, 20.
   The newspaper claims that Korshunova jumped from her ninth-storey apartment.
   Korshunova had been modelling in Almaty, Kazakhstan before being discovered in an in-flight magazine by a booker from Models One, Debbie Jones, says the newspaper. She was lately represented by IMG in New York and Paris.
   She would have turned 21 on July 2.
