Model dies after 12th floor balcony plunge but family reject ‘suicide’ claims

2 min read

A model's fatal fall from a 12th-floor balcony was not the suicide her husband claims, says family.

Nayara Vit, 33, was at her apartment in the Chilean capital of Santiago on July 7, when she fell to her death.

The tragic model's cousin and journalist, Sergio Puga refutes the explanation that she suddenly leapt up from her seat in their living room, and threw herself off the balcony.

Nayara who was originally from Cuiaba, Brazil, had made a name for herself in the media for appearing as a guest on a popular chat show on Channel TV+, called Toc Show.

Husband and director of a tech company, Rodrigo Del Valle Mijac, is now the sole parent for the couple's four-year-old daughter.

Puga said of the police: "They worked with the suicide hypothesis and that was it. That's very strange. Rodrigo got in touch with Nayara's family an hour later on his lawyer's advice. Who loses a loved one and goes to look for a lawyer to call the deceased's father?"`

Puga is calling for all the facts to be investigated as he says Rodrigo's version of events does not stack up. Nayara's mother, Eliane Vit, also took to social media to say she did not believe her daughter committed suicide.

The victim's family has been unable to travel to the scene of the crime due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic ruling out movement between the two countries. The family is currently in touch with the local embassy.

Nayara was born in Cuiaba to a Lebanese father and a Spanish mother and she lived there for 15 years before moving to the Brazilian city of Sao Paulo.

She had been living in Santiago for the past 16 years and leaves behind a four-year-old daughter, who said she heard her mother screaming moments before the fall, which took place just days after her 33rd birthday.

The investigation is ongoing.
