A Hollywood sex guru has been killed in a three storey plunge and her ex-boyfriend was arrested on suspicion of murder.
Dr Amie Harwick was found having fallen from a third storey balcony at a property in Hollywood Hills at around 1.16am.
Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) were called to the reports of a woman screaming at the address.
Swooping on the scene, the cops were met by Harwick’s roommate who claimed she was being assaulted.
Police entered the property and found her suffering serious injuries beneath a third floor balcony – she was taken to hospital but died shortly afterwards.
Her former boyfriend Gareth Pursehouse, 41, has since been arrested on suspicion of murder and held on a $2million bail bond.

Detectives learned Harwick had previously filed a restraining order against Pursehouse, but it had expired.
Cops discovered possible evidence of a struggle upstairs and forced entry to the residence.
And there was also evidence of a suspect entering and leaving the property after the murder had taken place.
