A Chinese American socialite who mingled with celebrities such as Hillary Clinton reportedly jumped to her death in Hong Kong on Jan. 6. Luo Lili, 34, plunged naked from her 5,000-foot penthouse while carrying her 5-month-old daughter Aier. Both of them died upon impact.

Luo reportedly worked for her mother as an English translator until she founded her own company in 2014. Luo was a single mother, and one of her final Instagram posts celebrated her baby's 100th day. "It is Aier's 100th day for being in our World. She is God's way to give me perspective on life. Thank you for showing up in my life my beloved daughter," Luo wrote.
