Man whose girlfriend committed suicide after he threatened to send revenge porn to her family may face manslaughter charges

A man whose girlfriend jumped to her death after he threatened her with revenge porn may face manslaughter charges, a court heard.

Alessio Bianchi told Damilya Jossipalenya he would send the clip to her relatives days before she fell 80 feet from her apartment.

Bianchi, 26, had already shared footage of Damilya, 24, performing a sex act on him, warning: “I am going to keep destroying you.”

Last week Westminster coroner’s court in central London heard that the CPS has asked police if there is enough evidence to investigate him in connection with Damilya’s death.

Det. Sgt Emma Kirby, of the Metropolitan Police said: “We have been asked to look into whether there has been a history of domestic abuse that could have deteriorated the deceased’s mental state to a point where she might have committed suicide.”

The inquest of a woman who fell 80ft to her death days after her boyfriend threatened to release a revenge porn video of her has been delayed as prosecutors decide whether he should face a manslaughter charge. 
Damilya Jossipalenya, 24, killed herself a week after Alessio Bianchi, said he would send the porn clip along with film of her taking cocaine to her family on 25 May last year.
The 26-year-old Italian then pushed her out of his Paddington apartment during a row in the evening of 1 June and threw her into the water feature outside.

Bianchi, an Italian born in Saudi Arabia, got a 12-week suspended jail term in April after he admitted an assault on Damilya and disclosing private sexual photos and films.

He met her at London’s Regent’s University.

Bianchi’s barrister Steven Powles said: “It cannot be said that the defendant’s actions caused the suicide, only that he knew his actions related to a vulnerable woman.”

Assistant coroner Dr. Shirley Radcliffe adjourned the hearing until a full inquest later this year.
