International model Samira Frasch is found dead at the bottom of a swimming pool
Originally an immigrant from Madagascar, international model Samira Frasch thought she was living the American dream with her husband Adam Frasch and their two young daughters.
However, it was short-lived before her life was tragically cut short. On a cold winter morning, her lifeless body was found submerged in the deep end of her pool, and the death of Samira Frasch was immediately ruled foul play.
The first suspect considered was Adam’s previous wife, with whom Samira had both physical and verbal altercations in the past. Despite leaving large scars on Samira, the couple chose not to press charges.
However, at the time of her death, the two had made amends and had a friendly relationship.
Once multiple witnesses verified his ex-wife’s alibi on the morning of Samira’s murder, she gave the name of another woman from Adam’s past, Martha. “She seemed to have a lot of information,” she is seen telling police.
Adam met Martha while he was in the process of marrying and moving Samira to the United States. During that time, he got her pregnant. It is revealed that Martha reached out to Samira to let her know that she also has a child with her husband, Adam.
