America’s Next Top Model Contestant Killed In Drug Related Triple Murder
Mirjana Puhar, a recent "America's Next Top Model" contestant, was one of 3 victims found dead in a home that belonged to her boyfriend in Charlotte, North Carolina. Her boyfriend Jonathan Alvarado, 23, and Jusmar Gonzaga-Garcia, 21, his roommate, were also victims.
TMZ reports that a friend reportedly found the bodies after getting a call that gunshots were heard at the murder scene. He had gone to the house, saw 2 bodies -- Mirjana and the bf -- and then called police to report the killings.
The friend didn't see the 3rd victim, but did see money scattered around the house. The police have now arrested one 19-year-old Emmanuel Jesus Rangel and charged him with 3 counts of 1st degree murder.
The boyfriend, Jonathan Alvarado was 23 … and the third victim was 21-year-old Jusmar Gonzaga-Garcia.
Sources say Jusmar was Jonathan’s roommate and best friend. We’re told Mirjana had just moved in with the guys.
19-year-old Mirjana was on the 21st cycle of 'ANTM' ... which aired last year. She was eliminated from the show in the 10th episode.
Law enforcement sources say the preliminary investigation leads police to believe the murders were drug related -- and the victims knew the killer. The young model had only been with the boyfriend for a few months.
