The death of a 23-year-old Brentford beauty queen who plunged from a 12th floor flat has sent shockwaves through the community.
Sahar Daftary, of Trimmer Walk, fell 150ft from her former husband's Manchester apartment only days before Christmas.
Her Brentford-based family, who are Sunni Muslims originally from Afghanistan, travelled to Salford last week to lay flowers and pay their respects to the young model who was crowned as The face of Asia 2007. Sahar would have turned 24 on Christmas Day.
Speaking from the family home, her sister, Mariya Massumi, 34, said: "We will fight to get to the truth. We are so numb with shock and sadness."
Sahar is said to have visited her ex-lover Rashid Jamil's home on the eve of her death on Saturday, December 20, to remove her belongings following revelations he had a wife and two children, which led to their split two months ago.
Her family said the pair went through an Islamic 'wedding' ceremony declaring their love for each other at the Holiday Inn in Brentford High Street in December 2007.
Sahar's mum is said to be 'heartbroken'. One of the family's Brentford neighbours, Pam Murrum, said: "I knew something awful had happened because I heard a lot of crying and screaming during the Sunday."
Her brother-in-law Timor added: "It's all too much at the moment. We don't know the truth about what happened yet."
Sahar had recently given up modelling and started a course at Thames Valley University's Brentford campus, studying business and accounting.
Speaking about Sahar's relationship with Mr Jamil, friend Afrah Sami said: "They were very happy and she seemed to have the world at her feet after winning the Face of Asia competition and landing several big contracts. But she discovered he was married and became very unhappy.
"The stress changed her and she had stopped eating properly. She was very distracted with collecting her things from the apartment but he didn't want to see her."
Mr Jamil was arrested following the incident but was released on bail without charge.
Although initial investigations led police to believe her death may have been suicide, a second post mortem was called for last week after the family met with the senior investigating officer and raised concerns, insisting Sahara was very unlikely to have killed herself.
Investigations are continuing.
