Paula Sladewski, 26, a former Playboy model, was found dead and “burned beyond recognition” in a trash dumpster in Miami. Read more on Paula Sladewski’s murder below.
Former Playboy model Paula Sladewski’s body was found burned in a trash dumpster in Miami.
Sladewski’s boyfriend, Kevin Klym, was vacationing with her in Florida and is considered a person of interest.
Klym is said to be “devastated and traumatized” by news of the death, said his attorney, Marc Beginin.
“He desperately wants this crime solved and anybody involved brought to justice,” Beginin said.
Paula Sladewski was last seen alive at 7 a.m. at Club Space in Miami. She was there partying with her live-in boyfriend, Kevin Klym.
Klym told authorities that he and Paula were separated at the club after they got into a drunken argument and he was asked to leave by club bouncers.
“He requested the bouncers communicate with her to say that he was waiting outside and the bouncers said they did that,” his lawyer Beginin stated. “They came out and said she didn’t want to leave, she wanted to stay.” Klym went back to the hotel but Paula never returned.
Hours later Sladewski’s body was discovered by Miami Dade firefighters who were responding to reports of a fire in a dumpster.
The body was burned beyond recognition, and police had to use dental records to identify Sladewski.
Paula’s parents said they begged her to get out of her “violent” relationship with Klym.
“They fought from the beginning – physical, knock down fights,” Paula’s father claimed.
Watkins and his wife Patsy reveal Paula and Kevin had a violent relationship and they begged her to call it off. “They would say ‘but we love each other’ but I couldn’t see how,” Watkins said.
In 2009, Sladewski was arrested after she broke a bottle over Kevin’s head during a heated argument. Paula was booked for assault with a deadly weapon.
But later it seemed Paula was on the receiving end of the fights.
Paula’s father said Klym was arrested for breaking Sladewski’s nose in a Michigan hotel room in December while they were visiting her family.
Although the couple had a turbulent relationship, her father has no idea if Kevin is responsible for his daughter’s death. But Watkins is mad at Klym for leaving his stepdaughter alone and drunk in the Miami club.
“He had no regard for her safety at all. He was irresponsible in leaving her alone in her condition,” Watkins said.
This case sounds eerily similar to bikini model Jasmine Fiore’s death. Do you guys think the boyfriend is most likely responsible?
