The death of a fashion model who plunged from the ninth floor of a Manhattan building has been ruled a suicide. The medical examiner's office said Sunday that Ruslana Korshunova (roos-LAH'-nuh kor-shoo-NOE'-vuh) died in the fall the afternoon before.

The fall was from her apartment in the Financial District. The 20-year-old Korshunova was a native of Kazakhstan who graced the covers of top fashion magazines.
