20-Year-Old Model Daul Kim Is Dead

South Korean model Daul Kim was found hanged in her Paris apartment on Thursday, a spokeswoman for the city prosecutor's office said.

Police were investigating the cause of the 20-year-old's death and said it was most likely that she committed suicide, the prosecutor's spokeswoman told Reuters on Friday.

Kim's body was found on Thursday morning in her apartment in Paris by a male friend, who alerted the police.

Kim, who modelled for Chanel, Dries Van Noten and Maison Martin Margiela, made her debut at Paris Fashion Week in 2007, according to fashion magazine Vogue's website, www.vogue.com.
