Anna Loginova, a glamorous female bodyguard who was also a Russian model, has been killed as she tried to save her Porsche Cayenne from a carjacking. The 29-year-old died of head injuries after being dragged along the road as she clung on to the car.
But police believe she died as the victim of a random sting in Moscow, rather than deliberately targeted.
Loginova ran an all-female bodyguard agency, with many ex-KGB staff on her books. She also became nationally known for her eye-catching looks, and semi-nude modelling work.
From Metro News:
While other girls her age have part-time jobs after school working in shops or baby-sitting, 15-year-old Kira Plastininahas slightly grander designs – running a huge fashion empire.
The Tsarina of the Russian 'bratski generation' happens to have a multi- millionaire for a father who has helped launch her as the youngest designer in the world.
She has just launched her latest collection in Italy during Rome Fashion Week.
Her father, Sergei Plastinina, who made his money in food retailing, is worth a reported £350million and he helped Kira open more than 25 stores across Russia with a £50million investment. Ten more are due to open in the US this year.

"Pistorius was able to run with his prosthetic blades at the same speed as the able-bodied sprinters with about 25 percent less energy expenditure," the IAAF statement said.The decision to ban the 21-year-old sprinter from all competitions involving able-bodied athletes was announced by the sport's governing body, the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) yesterday.
"As soon as a given speed is reached, running with the prosthetics needs less additional energy than running with natural limbs.
"The IAAF Council has been able to review the full report and has decided that the prosthetic blades known as "cheetahs" should be considered as technical aids in clear contravention of IAAF Rule 144.2.
"As a result, Oscar Pistorius is not eligible to compete in competitions organized under IAAF Rules."

Hot post from Derek Hail:
Tila Tequilais famous for being perhaps the world’s biggest attention whore. What the hell is the point of this outfit other than to get noticed? Why wear a coat? What the hell’s up with that rugged jawline? If you put a mask on her you could call her “The Chomper”. Her super powers would be the ability to chew through metal and concrete.

This is 'Cannibal Man' - Christopher McCuin,25, who killed his girlfriend, Jana Shearer, 21, before filleting and cooking parts of her body at his mother's home in the town of Tyler, 110 miles east of Dallas.
Police sent to the crime scene found Shearer's mutilated body, with one ear boiling in a pot of water on the stove and a fork sticking from a pile of human flesh on a plate on the kitchen table. Whether McCuin had eaten any of her is unclear yet.
Shearer was abducted from her home on Friday night. Her death appeared to be the beginning of a crime spree — McCuin also allegedly stabbed the boyfriend of his estranged wife and broke into a business. The stabbing victim is in critical condition at an area hospital, officials said.
