A Model experienced a real life horror movie in Los Angeles when her boyfriend tortured, killed her and mutilated her body. Los Angeles police say 30-year-old Iana Kasian was scalped and had portions of her face torn off by her graphic novelist boyfriend. Her 26-year-old boyfriend, Blake Leibel, is the son of a wealthy Canadian real estate tycoon and Olympic sailor. Leibel has been charged with murder and faces the death penalty if convicted but has plead not guilty to the crimes.

Oddly, one of his novels apparently has some similarities between the murder in the fiction realm and the one Leibel committed in the real world. The book in question is called "Syndrome" and begins with flashbacks of a serial killer slashing throats and draining the blood of his victims. Is it possible Leibel drew on experience when writing some of these novels? The two share a child but it was unclear if the child was home at the time of her murder.
The graphic details in the autopsy were recently released and indicate Kasian was missing parts of her face and scalp leaving her skull fully exposed. The autopsy also revealed her to be missing her right ear and having human bite marks on her jaw. Leibel was out on bail at the time of Kasian's murder after he was arrested a week prior for rape. Kasian's mother has filed a wrongful death lawsuit for $56 million.
