Exhausted catwalk star Vlada Dzyuba perished in China but evidence of a 'biological poison' found in her body.

'Vlada could have been bitten by a mortally poisonous insect, she could have eaten something, or she could have been deliberately poisoned'

'The origin of the poison has not been established yet,' reported Life. 

'Vlada could have been bitten by a mortally poisonous insect, she could have eaten something, or she could have been deliberately poisoned.'

Reports say additional tests will now take place.

A criminal case was opened into her death last month by the Russian Investigative Committee. 

There was criticism that she had been allowed to miss school and work in China without medical insurance. 

She died in China following a gruelling 13-hour modelling assignment.

The case has raised concerns over the "exploitation" of underage Russian models desperate for glittering catwalks careers.

When she died, there were reports she had contracted meningitis. 

The official Chinese versions was that she died from septicaemia  "with multiple visceral organs damaged, liver dysfunction and renal insufficiency".

Sounds like rape and very brutal.

No child this age should be working/traveling alone while unsupervised. The parent(s) must accept the blame. A life unnecessarily cut way too short for what?

Poisoned or not, the way she died does not justify allowing teenagers to sacrifice their lives for fame and money. Parents and authorities should learn their lessons from this tragic death and some serious precautions should be taken. Lured by the illusions beauty hunters create such talents shouldn't be allowed to be abused by "traders" from now on.
