Model Plunged To Her Death after ‘Ex Boyfriend’ Revealed Her Secret Life as Prostitute

Laura Pahomova, a 23-year-old Latvian model, plunged to her death after former client Martin Riley emailed her family back in Latvia telling them about her escort work, a court heard.

A model jumped seven floors to her death from a hotel filled with Labour Party delegates after a spurned lover told her family about her double life as an escort which she described as  “posh prostitution”.

Laura Pahomova, 23, scrawled notes in lipstick and eyeliner over the walls, mirrors and furniture of a plush 13th floor apartment room claiming former client Martin Riley had driven her to suicide.

She was found on the sixth floor balcony of the Light Aparthotel in Manchester in September 2012 and pronounced dead at the scene.

Pahomova first worked in a factory and as a part-time model in the UK in 2008. However, in 2011, things weren’t going as planned.

She turned to prostitution to earn some extra income. Around this time, she met Martin Riley, a man who became her on-again-off-again lover. She would later come to describe Riley as a “stalker.”

September 28, 2012, sometime after breaking up, Riley used a false name to solicit via an escort website . Two days later, Pahomova’s family received an email from Riley informing them that rather than living life as a student, she was actually hooking.

On the same day, September 30th, a devastated Pahomova booked a room on one of the upper floors at the Light Boutique Aparthotel in Manchester’s city centre and sent series of texts to her father to ask for forgiveness. She then climbed over the balcony and jumped to her death.

Police later found messages scrawled in lipstick on the mirror, walls and furniture inside the room. These messages contained pleas of forgiveness from her family, and blamed Riley for what she would do.

Martin Riley was arrested as a suspect in connection with Pahomova’s death, but charges were eventually dropped.
