These dramatic CCTV images show teenage Dutch model Ivana Smit in the arms of an American ‘swinger’ crytocurrency trader – just a few hours before she was found dead after plunging from the balcony of the apartment he shares with his wife.
Businessman Alex Johnson is seen carrying the teenager, in this film obtained exclusively by DailyMail com, with his wife Luna looking on supportively.
A short time later the tragic teenager was found naked after plunging 14 floors to her death following a ‘drug-fuelled swingers party’ at his apartment in Kuala Lumpur.
Local police dismissed her death as a drug and booze-fuelled accident.
But a British former police officer who is investigating the case says she may have already been dead before falling over the balcony.

Final moments: In CCTV footage obtained by Dailymail.com, Ivana Smit can be seen being carried in the arms of Johnson at at 5.22am on December 7 – just hours before her she was found naked having fallen from his apartment in Kuala Lumpur
Mark Williams-Thomas, a private investigator who famously exposed the sickening crimes of Jimmy Savile in a TV documentary, says if the incident took place in the UK cops would treat it as murder.
Meanwhile, Dutch pathologist Frank van de Goot, who carried out the second postmortem on Ivana, says the lack of blood at the scene of the fall suggests the young model was dead before she fell.
Mr Williams-Thomas told Belgium’s TV Limburg: ‘I have no doubt. From the evidence that I have collected this week, and other information that we have through the forensics, we are in a position to say very clearly: If this was being dealt with in the UK, it would be treated as a homicide investigation.’
Ivana’s devastated father Marcel claims that police wanted to ‘close the case quickly’ and that neighbours heard ‘shouts and an argument’.
He said that he had been told the American couple are ‘swingers’who would take young models back to their apartment for parties and sex games.
And in a new dramatic twist, exclusive footage obtained by Dailymail.com Johnson, 45, is seen carrying Ivana into an elevator at Club 9 in the heart of Kuala Lumpur.
Ivana is being swept off her feet by Johnson as soon as they come into the view of security cameras at the plush club, with Luna walking a few steps behind. The time is 5.22am on December 6th.
An elevator attendant directs the pair to the lift while Johnson talks to Ivana who is seen kicking her legs up and down as they wait to be conveyed out of the club.
Luna is seen smiling from behind at her husband and the teenage model and then looking at her cell phone while the club’s lobby light turns her clothing into a see-through outfit.
Ivana’s family called the footage disturbing after being shown the footage showing the model being carried into a nightclub elevator by Johnson followed by his Indonesian wife, Luna

Ivana was discovered naked at around 3pm on December 7, but police say she died around 10am – five hours after she was filmed being carried out of the nightclub by Johnson
Final Moments: Police believe Ivana fell from the couple’s balcony at around 10am. Her naked body was not found for another five hours though, at around 3pm

Johnson appears to be carrying two cellphones in his left hand, while Ivana has one in her hand. Three more unknown clubbers wait with them for the lift.
Ivana’s family living in Belgium told of their shock after viewing the footage.
Her uncle Fred Agenjo Weinhold said: ‘This is disturbing. I don’t know why she is being carried. Johnson is taking Ivana in his hands, his wife is behind.
‘I want to ask the question as to why that is occurring. I think it is because Ivana felt safe because his wife was present. She had never met him until that night and also Ivana liked to be the centre of attention.’
If the scenes appeared perfectly convivial with the wealthy cryptocurrency trader carrying a girl young enough to be his daughter out of a nightclub, the events that followed are the subject of an investigation by both police and an independent pathologist.
The Johnsons told police that they returned to their apartment, about five miles from the club in Bangsar, with Ivana and that she slept on the couch while they went to bed.
Luna, an Indonesian national, told police she then took her daughter to school around 8am and saw Ivana still sleeping on the couch.
But when she returned two hours later there was no sign of Ivana and she presumed she had left for a fashion assignment she said she had later that day.
Luna, who is said to be well known for her carefree attitude towards her husband’s flirtation with other women, said she joined him in their bed and the couple were woken by police at 3pm.

Johnson said he was asleep between 10am and 3pm on the day of the death, and his wife reportedly claimed to have been taking their four-year-old daughter to school in the morning
Their apartment front door was open and it enabled police to enter and find them in bed before breaking the news of the tragedy.
Neither Johnson or his wife have made any public comment about the circumstances of Ivana’s death. They have appeared in court in Kuala Lumpur on drugs charges – but they were immediately cleared of any involvement in Ivana’s death.
Luna told DailyMail.com: ‘We will be proved innocent.’
Ivana’s father Marcel, 55, speaking at the family’s detached home near Eindhoven, said: ‘I am angry and I cannot accept the death of my daughter. Why did she die? Why why why?
‘It is going to be my mission in life to find out who did this to her and to see them receive life sentences or a death penalty.’
He said his daughter had appeared perfectly happy when she texted her boyfriend Lukas Kramer from the Johnson’s flat, saying she was going to rest there until dawn and then attend a modelling shoot for Bang & Olufsen which had been scheduled that morning.
Mr Weinhold said then Luna spoken to Ivana’s boyfriend from the teenager’s cellphone a few minutes later to assure him she was fine and staying in the flat.
But he said he was suspicious about a text message sent to the boyfriend shortly after from Ivana’s cell phone with a selfie, which read: ‘Chilling at my chicks place.’
Mr Weinhold said: ‘I believe this message was not sent by Ivana. That is not the kind of terminology that she uses. We have never heard her say ‘chicks’ before or use ‘chilling.’
Ivana’s body was found naked with ecstasy, cocaine and alcohol in her system. Police have still not found her shoes or underwear

He added: ‘In the selfie, Ivana’s eyes look tired and as if she is drunk or drugged while Luna is smiling. She has taken the selfie and sent it.
‘There are so many questions that the Johnsons have to answer. We want to know what they did with Ivana and how she came to die like that.’
Police say she fell at around 10am. Her body was not discovered until 3pm, six hours later. A postmortem revealed she had traces of ecstasy and alcohol in her system at the time. Cocaine, had also been consumed by the teenager.
Her family say the apartment was cleared within an hour after Ivana’s body had been found for the Johnsons to move back in. Her panties and underwear have still to be traced.
Mr Smit, who runs a transport company in Holland, added: ‘When I found out Ivana had passed, it was terrible.
‘Her boyfriend sent a Whats App message and asked us to contact him and when I did he asked me if I had heard Ivana was.
‘I said ‘Why…did you have a fight with each other?’
Mr Smit said Lukas said he had not heard from her. Ivana used to speak with her mother at 7am local time every day, but she hadn’t called and it was 8pm now when we were told she had passed away.
‘A friend of hers called and said Ivana had passed away and fallen from a balcony 20 stories high.
‘I was empty inside, overwhelmed, no words, my wife was hysterical and was saying ‘No that is not my Ivana, that is not my Ivana.’
Ivana’s Lukas Kramer, 21, phoned her at 6.30am on December 7 when he woke to find her not with him. Soon after he said Luna Johnson phoned him to say they were ‘chilling’. He was then sent a selfie of Ivana and Luna with the caption, ‘chilling at my chicks place’ – but Lukas is adamant that he had never heard his girlfriend using the phrase ‘chicks’ before
Lukas, 21, who works for a shipping company, said: ‘It is devastating, very tough and I am just trying to find justice for Ivana.
‘The police have told me it was suicide and that’s it. They are saying it is a sudden death after she overdosed on drugs and fell from the balcony.
‘I didn’t know the couple she was with at all until it happened. I can’t understand what happened.
‘She told me on the night that she was going out with some model friends. It was a Wednesday night and I work till 8pm. When I got home she told me she wanted to go out.
‘She said she would be out for a couple of hours and have only a couple of drinks. She gave me a hug and said ‘I love you’ and left.
‘I went to the gym for a half-an-hour and went to bed.’
He added: ‘The next morning I woke up at 6.30 and she was not laying next to me. So I called her up and she picked up right away. She sounded good. She sounded alright. She said it had been a long night and she was at her girlfriend’s place.
‘She didn’t mention anything about this guy Alex. She said she was going to get some rest and sleep. I didn’t think anything of it as she had a job that day.’
Soon after he received a telephone call from Luna Johnson from Ivana’s cell phone who introduced herself and said they were just ‘chilling’.
He went to work after receiving a selfie of Ivana and Luna which he said appeared to have been taken by Luna on his girlfriend’s phone.
The message under it said ‘Chilling at my chicks place’, but Lukas is adamant that he had never heard his girlfriend using the phrase ‘chicks’ before.
‘She would have said she as at her girlfriend’s place, never use ‘chilling’ and ‘chicks’, he added.
After returning from work that evening, he saw his girlfriend hadn’t returned or checked her ‘Whatsapp’ messages on her phone.
He spoke with her parents in Holland and then received a call from one of Ivana’s model friends informing him of the tragedy. The news was confirmed by police when he visited a station.
He later joined her parent’s when they viewed the teenager’s body in hospital.
‘I had never known her take drugs, not at all. We went to the gym together and she liked an active, healthy lifestyle.
‘She was happy, she was really happy. I cannot accept it was suicide in any way. If you had asked me who was the least (likely) person to commit suicide, then I would have said Ivana for sure. She had a positive attitude all the time.’
‘She liked a drink or a beer like anybody else. But nothing like drugs, no way…no way.
‘I am angry. Why I haven’t sen a proper timeline from the police or CCTV from the block of flats. Was there anybody else in the apartment. What happened: It seems like nobody here is caring. It has all gone quiet. The police need to investigate properly.’
Lukas revealed he had received bizarre text messages from a friend of the Johnsons after his girlfriend died.
One text said: ‘She wanted to break up with you. She didn’t have nice things to say about you bro.’
But Lukas texted back: ‘It is all bull****.’
