According to officials, Kraft met Harris and they headed to her apartment, with a tipster allegedly pointing to the suspect after surveillance images had been released. The informant reportedly told authorities that Harris wrote in text messages that he had met a woman and was at her place on August 22.
Kraft was later found dead in her bedroom, with the autopsy indicating that her nose was fractured, and she died of ligature strangling just four days after being robbed.
On Wednesday, Kraft, whose modeling profile includes shootings for Victoria’s Secret, Playboy and Maxi, was laid to rest in a funeral service in New Jersey. Family members, including her father, and fiancé Alexander Ciccotelli, were spotted outside the Ventor church after the service.
