Top Model Committed Suicide after Flying to Epstein Island, Court Docs Reveal
A top model who jumped to her death from her Wall Street apartment had flown to Jeffrey Epstein’s private island on his infamous “Lolita Express,” according to newly unsealed court documents.
Ruslana Korshunova, a successful model who featured on Marc Jacobs, DKNY, Vera Wang, and Nina Ricci perfume campaigns, traveled on the late pedophile’s jet in 2006, the Daily Mail reported.
Two years after the Kazakh-Russian beauty traveled to Epstein’s Little St. James island, she jumped to her death from her ninth-floor balcony.
The model’s ex-boyfriend told The New York Post she had problems she kept “bottled up.”
Korshunova’s trip to Epstein’s island was just weeks after the financier was arrested in 2006 and later convicted of sex with underage girls.

Epstein was listed as being on the flight with Korshunova and three of his staffers — bodyguard Igor Zinoviev, personal chef Lance Calloway, and assistant Sarah Kellen.
Another woman, identified as Stephanie Tidwell, and an unidentified former UFC fighter were also on the flight.
It is not clear what happened to Korshunova when she arrived on the island, but whatever it was caused her massive physical harm.
Years after her tragic death, Virginia Giuffre’s attorney emailed her asking whether she knew Korshunova.
“I think it’s a long shot you would recognize her, but read the article I attached and then look at the pictures and see if you recognize her,” attorney Brad Edwards wrote in the newly unsealed 2011 email.
But Giuffre replied:
“I am sorry to hear the news of Ruslana, and my condolences are with her family and friends.
“I can say that I have never had any meetings with her, sorry not to be of any help there.”
Korshunova died at the young age of 20.
“I heard what sounded like a gunshot or a bomb or an explosion,” said a stunned Con Ed worker who heard the fall.
“I looked down the street, and I say to the cop, ‘Did that person just get hit by a car?’” said the worker, who identified himself only as Patrick, of Brooklyn.
