Ardmore, Pa. - Lower Merion police are investigating after a former Playboy model was found dead in an Ardmore condominium.
Police tape stretches along a walkway at the Cambridge Square Condominium in Ardmore after the Wednesday discovery of model Christina Carlin-Kraft’s body.
A law enforcement source tells FOX 29 video from the lobby of the building and use of the victim’s stolen credit card led Lower Merion police—working with city cops—to a home on Theodore Street in Southwest Philly earlier this week. It’s there where some of Kraft’s belongings were recovered from a burglary of the victim’s apartment she reported Saturday morning, according to the source. City police made two arrests, found drugs and guns but not the man they’re looking for. Police say one of the suspects they think is linked to the burglary is a local man named Andre Melton.
Sources tell FOX 29 lobby cameras catch the model coming home early Wednesday morning with a man near her, but it’s unclear if they’re together. Also, it's unclear if the burglary and her death are linked.
Land records show the condo is owned by a man whose parents still live in nearby Wynnewood. They sent FOX 29's Jeff Cole away Friday.
FOX 29 confirms on Friday around 2 p.m., Upper Darby police got a license plate hit for a burgundy Kia station wagon linked to the burglary in this case. Cole reports police were unable to stop the vehicle.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Lower Merion Police Department at 610-649-1000 or the Montgomery County Detective Bureau at 610-278-3368.
