Mystery of whether naked porn star found dead after drug fuelled party was pushed or fell from flat window

A young woman has been found naked and with serious head injuries after plunging two storeys from the window ledge. She is now fighting for her life.



Inside the luxury Brighton flat, police find a man in just his boxer shorts, who tells them: “I’ve used some drugs . . . I’ve used some cocaine. And Diazepam.”

When asked who else is with him, he pauses and looks around the living room before saying: “Aimee.”

Clearly confused, he then asks: “Where is she?”

In dramatic footage caught by the body cameras worn by the police, to be screened as part of a new ITV documentary, cops explain that a woman has fallen from the window.

The young man lets out a cry — and is arrested on suspicion of the attempted murder of 27-year-old Aimee Spencer.

She is a porn star and webcam girl known professionally as Carla Mai, who once appeared in Geordie Shore alongside Vicky Pattison — and had dreams of being a chef.

'SCARED OF HEIGHTS'

The young man is never charged, and is later cleared of any involvement in the fall.

So how did naked Aimee fall to her death from the seafront flat?

Her sister Daria said: “My sister is scared of heights. What was she doing climbing out of a window?”

The documentary, The Death Of Aimee Spencer, follows DS Sally Hodges and her team from Brighton CID as they scour the flat for clues to try to find an answer.



The apartment was home to ­Daniel Lewis, then 28, the man arrested and then cleared without charge.

His lavish drug-fuelled ­lifestyle was supported by a trust fund from his grandad, former TV exec Lord Gus Macdonald.

Soon a neighbour in another block gave a statement describing Aimee “falling out of the window”.

At this point on the morning of July 11, 2016, the police only knew Aimee’s first name, but were able to identify her from her distinctive ­tattoos — a roulette wheel on her arm and two guns on her hips.

Speaking exclusively to The Sun, her heartbroken mum Jean Spencer said: “It’s one thing we kept nagging her about. We’d joke: ‘Oh Aimee — not more tattoos’.

We'd joke, 'Oh Aimee – not more tattoos'

“Yet in hindsight, it was her ­tattoos that helped to identify her.”

Aimee’s parents Jean, 61, and Richard, 69, and sister Daria, 25, raced to the Royal Sussex County Hospital, where Aimee was in intensive care and on life support.

Richard said: “She had catastrophic brain injuries and they told us there wasn’t much possibility of recovery. Even though they warned me, it still took my breath away when I saw her.

“Nothing can prepare you for the sight of your daughter hooked up to all these machines.”

Meanwhile, the documentary follows the detectives as they tried to get to the bottom of how Aimee fell.



They discover a handwritten list detailing a “party platter” of Class A drugs as well as prices.

A search of a garage rented by Daniel Lewis also found drugs. In total, the drugs found in the flat and the garage added up to an ­estimated street value of up to £15,000.

Detectives also probed messages on Aimee’s mobile phone, and found a ­WhatsApp message from Daniel reading: “Get in, get your kit off, get Helen making balloons while I’ll make a line under your nose as long as a yeti’s leg.”

In a police interview nearly 48 hours after his initial arrest, Daniel refused to answer police questions but his ­solicitor read out a statement from him.

In it, he denied causing injury to Aimee and said she had taken drugs of her own free will. It continued: “Aimee had been acting strangely and didn’t recognise me. I saw her sitting on the window ledge and she fell back out of the window before I could get to her.”

Daniel was released without charge while police continued to investigate possible drug offences.

CATASTROPHIC BRAIN INJURIES

At the hospital, Aimee’s family continued to keep a vigil at her bedside, but after a week they were told her brainstem had been severed, and made the decision to switch off her life-support machine.

With tears in her eyes, Jean recalled: “I remember the nurse said she had a really strong heart and I whispered in Aimee’s ear, ‘Sweetheart, if it’s time to go, take the opportunity and go with love’. Nothing can prepare you for it.”

A post-mortem revealed Aimee had died as a result of complications from her head injuries.

It also found she had not been involved in a struggle before she died. Blood tests showed she had taken cocaine and ketamine.



Sister Daria admitted: “To hear the quantity of what was in her system was a surprise to me.”

The family, from Wellingborough, Northants, say they agreed to take part in the ITV documentary, ­presented by Katie Piper, to help raise awareness of the potential consequences of taking drugs.

Jean explained: “We lost a ­daughter. She was 27. Drugs were there and in some form a factor, so if we can help prevent somebody else going through this we will.”

Aimee was just 16 when she first tried drugs with friends.

Richard said: “She wanted to be like everyone else. She later told me she had tried coke and liked it.”

After leaving school, Aimee got a job in a bar at a holiday camp before doing some modelling.

She tried pole dancing and was scouted to work at lap-dancing club chain Spearmint Rhino in London.

Aimee, who was living in Basildon, Essex, at the time of her death, also appeared on Babestation TV and became a webcam girl, starring in the 2014 BBC3 documentary The Truth About Webcam Girls.

She later got into porn and starred in several adult films.

Jean, a clothes store manager, said: “She told me, ‘I like sex so what’s the difference? If I get money for it, fine’.

FREE SPIRIT

“She saw it as easy money. Aimee never hid anything she did. It wasn’t necessarily something we condoned but we couldn’t stop her. Aimee was a free spirit.”

Richard, a retired rail ticket inspector, added: “People will judge her but we were proud of her. She was a grafter.”

They added that Aimee was ­planning to change her career, and had been to catering college.

Jean revealed: “She wanted to write a cookbook and was going to call herself the Chef With Ink.”

But the grieving mum added: “She always said she couldn’t ­picture herself growing old.”

Nearly two months after Aimee’s death, Daniel Lewis was charged with eight counts of drug possession with intent to supply.

People will judge her but we were proud

But because of a lack of evidence, the Crown Prosecution Service would not bring a charge of ­supplying Aimee with the drugs found in her body.

At her inquest in May 2017, a ­coroner found Aimee died as a result of injuries sustained from the fall but the exact circumstances surrounding it remained uncertain.

Last October, Lewis, 30, pleaded guilty to seven counts of possessing drugs, including cocaine, ketamine and LSD, with intent to supply.

He was given a suspended ­sentence which was later raised on appeal to three years in prison.

Meanwhile, while Aimee’s family are keen to praise police, dad ­Richard admitted: “There are more questions than answers. We will never know what happened.”
