A new task force will be set up to look into the death of Dutch model Ivana Smit, who fell from a balcony at a condominium in Kuala Lumpur in 2017.

Bukit Aman CID director Comm Datuk Huzir Mohamed said the case has also been reclassified as murder under Section 302 of the Penal Code after the High Court set aside the coroner's court verdict that that ruled Smit's death as a misadventure.

On Dec 7,2017, Smit was found dead on the sixth-floor condo of CapSquare Residence, 14 floors after falling from the 20th-floor unit belonging to American couple Alex Johnson and Luna Almaz.
