Body of Playboy model found burned in Miami rubbish bin

The body of a Playboy model has been found in a Miami rubbish bin on Sunday, but because of extensive burns, her remains were not identified until Wednesday. She had to be identified by her dental records.

Paula Sladewski, 26, had been visiting the Florida city with her boyfriend over the New Year after seeing her parents in Michigan, said police.

The Los Angeles-based model appeared in Playboy magazine and the 2003 movie, "Playboy: The Ultimate Playmate Search."

Playboy model found burnedShe went to see a Miami concert by the singer Lady Gaga on New Year's Eve and then spent the weekend visiting bars and nightclubs.

She was last seen early on Sunday morning at 7 a.m. at Club Space in Miami with her boyfriend, Kevin Klym, 34. He told police they got into a fight after he wanted to leave because he believed she was "too drunk".

She reportedly shouted at him and bouncers threw him out of the club, whereupon he said he took a taxi back to their home.

He told police it was the last time he saw her. He later called hospitals and police stations, filing a missing person's report in which he listed her profession as "stripper".

That night, hours later, Sladewski's body was discovered by Miami Dade firefighters who were responding to reports of a fire in a rubbish bin behind a propane store. The body, which was still burning, was beyond recognition.

Richard Watkins, Miss Sladewski's step-father, said his daughter and her boyfriend had a "very volatile relationship".

"They had a horrible relationship," said Watkins. "I have told them from the start that they shouldn’t be together."

Watkins said the couple, who had been together for two years, argued often. He said a month ago, Klym broke Sladewski's nose during an argument and was arrested.

Police said Mr Klym was cooperating with their investigation and was considered a "person of interest as would be anyone who last saw her alive".
