An American-Chinese socialite has reportedly died in Hong Kong after plunging from her penthouse naked while carrying her five-month-old daughter in her arms on January 10th.
Luo Lili, 34, who had rubbed shoulders with the likes of Hillary Clinton and Rita Ora, reportedly jumped to her death with her baby after suffering post-natal depression, according to multiple reports from local media.
The Hong Kong police found the bodies of a 34-year-old woman and her five-month-old daughter at the bottom of an apartment block confirmed through an email statement.
The officers were deployed to the scene after receiving a report from a local security guard who spotted the corpses.
‘The woman and the baby girl were certified dead at scene. Initial investigation revealed that they fell from a unit. No will note was found at scene,’ said the police said, who are still investigating the incident.
‘Postmortem examinations will be conducted later to ascertain the cause of deaths of the deceased.’
The police only identified the deceased by their surname Luo.

She was said to have jumped to her death without wearing clothing from her 5,000-square-foot penthouse while carrying her baby in her arms.
Ms Luo appeared to have enjoyed an extravagant life as a socialite as she was frequently pictured with influential figures around the world including former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and English pop superstar Rita Ora.
In a recent Instagram post, Ms Luo shared a photo with her daughter, Aier, while celebrating her baby girl’s 100-day birthday.
Ms Luo, 34, appeared to have lived a lavish life, studying and traveling around the world.
Ms Luo was reportedly the only daughter of Luo Lin, the chairman of Jinlin Real Estate in south-western Chinese metropolis Chengdu, who owns multiple luxury development projects across the country.
Her father is said to have come from a doctor family who have practiced Chinese traditional medicine for six generations.
Born in Chengdu, Ms Luo moved to Hong Kong at the age of four before studying in Australia and the United States. She was said to be a fluent English speaker and have worked as a translator for her mother before founding her own company in 2014.
