Czech model Katerina Netolicka has been found dead, just days after celebrating her 26th birthday. The model, who has previously worked for L'Oreal, Harper's Bazaar, Elle and more, was found in her bathtub by her brother who grew concerned when he couldn't reach her and forced his way into her home.
Katerina was said to have been found with her two dogs, also dead, beside her. She had been dating ice hockey star Jakub Petruzalek for 5 years, but he was out of the country for a game at the time. A model who previously shared an apartment with Katerina while she lives in NYC has commented that the model used to struggle with depression:
"Sometimes she acted like two totally different people lived inside her. One minute she was very happy, almost ecstatic. Then sometimes she was depressed and used to self-harm."
The cause of death hasn't been confirmed yet.
