Kasia Lenhardt, a former girlfriend of German footballer Jerome Boateng has been found dead in her apartment as police are not treating her death as suspicious.
German outlet BILD via SPORTbible are reporting that authorities are suspecting possible suicide just a week after the player announced they had separated.
According to the report, there are no indications of a third-party in the incident as officers were called in around 8.30pm on Tuesday, February 9.
Police statement reads:
"Yesterday at around 8.30 p.m. there was a police operation in Charlottenburg on suspicion of suicide. A lifeless person was found in the home. There are no indications of third-party debt."
It was gathered that Kasia was in a relationship with the Bayern Munich player for about 15 months before they parted ways.
A fellow model and friend to the deceased paid an emotional tribute on Instagram where she wrote:
"I will never forget you, I don't know anyone who could laugh like you. I send a lot of strength to the family."
Boateng has earlier this month confirmed on social media that the pair have gone their separate ways after rumour had trended in the media.
"We will go our separate ways from now on. That is regrettable, but for my family and for me it is the only right one.
"I had to take this step and draw a line. I apologise to everyone I've hurt especially with my ex-girlfriend Rebecca and our children.”
The World Cup winner was earlier ordered to appear in Court on December 10 for him to explain the rationale behind what he has been accused of doing.
Boateng was said to have angrily attacked the mother of his twins while on holiday and the video of the incident has been seen by legal authorities.
The report added that Boateng has denied attacking Sherin claiming that the issue that happened between them was a private matter not meant for the public.
Also, it was reported that should Jerome Boateng escape jail-term, then he would be made to pay heavy fine for the incident.
