The victim under the sheet was a woman in her late fifties.
She was Miss Austria in her early 20's and a contestant in the Miss World pageant.
At the time of her death she was destitute and alone, but still carried her passport with a photo of her at the peak of her beauty.
She was stunning.
On October 22nd of last year, wandering the halls of the building she had chosen for her last act, she had looked for an open window at the record company that produces Maroon Five.
Asked to leave, she found one a floor above in a hallway, took sleeping pills, sat on the ledge in the sunlight for about ten minutes, then leaned forward.
