Mystery man wanted for questioning in slaying of Southern California model
Police in Florida have released a sketch of a man wanted for questioning in the case of a Southern California model found burned inside a Miami-area trash bin.
Paula Sladewski, a 26-year-old who posed for Playboy, was on vacation in Miami with her boyfriend, Kevin Kylm. He told police the two got separated while at a club. She was found last month; police used dental records to identify her.
Authorities have called Kylm a "person of interest" in the case but said he was cooperating with investigators. His attorney has said Kylm had nothing to do with the slaying.
The sketch was based on accounts from witnesses who saw a man with the model.
"He's a person we want to locate and speak to,'' Lt. Neal Cuevas, a North Miami police spokesman, told the Miami Herald. "We're progressing. We're not at a dead end.''
Sladewski, who lived in Rancho Cucamonga, appeared in the 2003 movie "Playboy: The Ultimate Playmate Search."
