A British ex-cop says a Dutch teen model may have been knocked out before she plunged 14 floors to her death after a ‘drug-fuelled party’ in Malaysia.
Local cops said the death of Ivana Smit, 19, who was building a successful career as a model, was a drug and booze-fuelled accident.
But Mark Williams-Thomas, a private investigator who famously exposed the sickening crimes of Jimmy Savile in a TV documentary, says she received a head injury before she fell.
Dutch model Ivana Smit, 19, had received a head injury prior to being found dead after a 14-floor fall in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, a report claims

Final moments: Miss Smit’s naked body was found on the balcony of a 6th floor apartment at just before 3pm
He last night released the results of a preliminary report after being hired to look into the tragedy by her family.
After a night out in Kuala Lumpur, Ivana returned to the 20th floor apartment of wealthy American Alexander Johnson and his wife Luna in the early hours of December 7.
She was found naked on a sixth floor balcony that afternoon.
Mr Williams-Thomas’ report states that a Dutch pathologist noted bruising to the back of Ivana’s head.
He wrote: ‘This was not significant enough to have caused her death but would have rendered her unconscious.

Investigating: A report by Mark Williams-Thomas, pictured, claims that it is ‘highly improbable’ that she fell while intoxicated because of the injuries she sustained before she died
Miss Smith returned to the 20th floor apartment of the Johnsons after a night out
‘This injury occurred before her fall inside apartment 20 and at some time between 7.24am and 2.45pm when police were called.’
He added that a lack of blood from the injuries sustained by the teen as a consequence of her plunge is suggestive that she was dead before the fall.
The pathologist also noted bruising on her arms that is consistent with – but does not conclusively prove – that she was grabbed before or shortly after she died.
TIMELINE OF IVANA SMIT’S DEATH
At 5.22am cameras in a Kuala Lumpur club appear to show Johnson carrying Ivana in his arms through the hall towards a lift.
At approximately 6.45am Ivana called and spoke with her boyfriend from inside 20 Capsquare Residences, the home address of Alexander and Luna Johnson.
Shortly after this call Luna also called and spoke with Ivana’s boyfriend, the report states.
Mr Williams-Thomas notes that was unusual as they had never spoken before.
At 7.18am Ivana was online on one of her two phones and at 7.24am, a selfie was sent from one of these phones to her boyfriend – a picture of Ivana and Luna with the caption ‘I’m still chilling at my chicks place. I love you’.
At around 9.30am the occupant of apartment 6, which is directly below apartment 20, stepped out – Ivana had not fallen over the balcony prior to his departure.
The head injury occurred at some time between 7.24am and 2.45pm when police were called.
Ivana also had alcohol and a high level of a drug known as PMMA, which is amphetamine-based and often sold as ecstasy, in her system.
Her PMMA levels were high enough to have caused her death alone, the report states.
The report adds it is ‘possible but highly improbable’ that she fell over the balcony while intoxicated because of the injuries she sustained before she died.
It also states that suicide is an unlikely the model took her own life because of her behaviour that night, as seen via CCTV and statements from witnesses.
Mr Williams-Thomas – a former cop in Surrey and the presenter of ‘The Other Side of Jimmy Savile’ documentary on ITV – concludes: ‘Until such time as these questions are answered satisfactorily this case should be treated as a homicide investigation.’
Mr Johnson is a cryptocurrency trader and co-founder of the company Everus World, according to his LinkedIn profile.
In a statement , Everus said: ‘Everus is aware of the ongoing investigations by the Malaysian authorities with regards to one of our employees.
‘The company will continue to monitor this matter carefully. Until the relevant authorities release official statements, we are unable to comment further. Thank you.’
