The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office pronounced the forty-seven-year-old model and actress, Kim Porter dead on the scene. The cause of her death remained unknown even after her death certificate was revealed.
The model's sudden death has left investigators confused. Especially since Porter was in relatively good health. She had received treatment from a private doctor for the flu and suspected pneumonia in the days prior to her death but had led a relatively healthy life.
