CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – A Serbian-born model and self-described “wild child” who was a contestant on “America’s Next Top Model” was one of three people killed in a North Carolina home.
The Charlotte Observer reports 19-year-old Emmanuel Jesus Rangel-Hernandez is charged with three counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of 19-year-old Mirjana Puhar and two other victims. Charlotte police called the killings drug-related. They did not say how the three were killed.
In 2014, Puhar told the Observer she was born in Serbia. She said her family fled after the Kosovo War and moved to North Carolina a decade later.
Puhar said she was a “wild child” who partied and didn’t have the best influences around her. She dropped out of high school before earning her GED at a community college.
