Autopsy shows no foul play, model may have fallen into Seine, police say

PARIS – The body of Katoucha Niane, one of the first African women to attain international stardom as a model and a vocal opponent of female genital mutilation, was found in the Seine River, police said Friday.
Known simply as Katoucha, the former top model for Yves Saint Laurent and other top designers was found Thursday near the Garigliano bridge in Paris, judicial police in Paris said.
An autopsy showed no signs of foul play, pointing to the possibility that the 47-year-old may have fallen accidentally into the river, they said.

Necropsia revela que a ex-modelo Katoucha morreu afogada

PARIS, 29 Fev 2008 (AFP) – A ex-modelo e musa da alta-costura Katoucha Niane, desaparecida no início do fevereiro e que teve o corpo encontrado na quinta-feira no rio Sena em Paris, morreu afogada e não apresentava marcas de violência, segundo os resultados da necropsia.

O exame concluiu que a modelo morreu “por submersão rápida e sem sinais de violência”. Durante a investigação, foram realizados novos exames complementares de rotina.

A necropsia determinou formalmente que o corpo encontrado na quinta-feira, no Sena, corresponde ao de Katoucha Niane, ex-modelo de origem guineana de 47 anos.

Os investigadores privilegiam a tese de acidente para explicar a morte.
