Feeling drained

A Los Angeles coroner has ruled that Ukrainian-born Iana Kasian, 30, died in May 2016 from exsanguination – her body was drained of blood after her scalp was stripped off. She lived at least eight hours after the injury, according to the coroner.

Facing trial for her murder is Blake Leibel, 36, the son of a Canadian property magnate. In addition to the murder charge he faces charges of “mayhem, aggravated mayhem, and torture”.
