Death of a Mongolian Model

With Dr M hospitalised, Malaysia and Singapore readers have been gripped by news of the alleged gruesome murder of beautiful Mongolian model Altantuya Shaariibuu (top right hand corner and pix of her grieving father under her) in Malaysia. The rest of the pictures came from an unverified email, purportedly of Atlantuya when she was a model.

She was apparently gunned down and then blown to pieces with C4 plastic explosives following a love affair that turned sour.

The police have been grilling a political analyst and others in the probe. The analyst is known to be an associate and a speechwriter of a high-ranking Malaysian minister.

PS: Singapore's ST yesterday said the sexy pix circulated in the email are not that of the Mongolian model. It's in fact pix of a Korean model. Not entirely surprising that somebody is trying to capitalise on news of the Mongolian model.
