What is surprising is her street-smart ways and her own recognition that modeling is only a stopgap career, a lucrative means to fund her tuition for a degree in forensic psychology. But more surprising - and disturbing - is that while on assignment in Sydney, Australia, Makedde finds herself in the middle of a grisly, sensational hunt for the "Stiletto Murderer" - a serial killer who brutally murdered Makedde's best friend - and may see Makedde as his next fashion victim.
