A model who had been holidaying with a friend has been found dead with a single gunshot wound to her head, police say.

Jessyca Egle, 29, was found dead in bed at her friend's house in Balneario Camboriu, Brazil, where she had been staying for a few days.

The Civil Police Station in Porto Belo said Egle's friend woke to the sound of a gunshot on April 21 at around 7am.

She then went to check on her pal, and discovered a 380 caliber pistol beside Egle’s lifeless body.

According to police, the home did not have CCTV and it is unclear at this stage whether the model took her own life or whether a crime has been committed.

Jessyca's friend reportedly told officers that she had recently broken up with a boyfriend and was "acting differently" as a result of the break up.

The Brazilian model is understood to have been very upset about the split, local media reported.

Police spokesperson Jubert dos Santos said police are currently investigating the 29-year-old’s death.

Mr dos Santos said the team will "analyse all traces" where Egle had been staying to "understand the dynamics" of the situation.

The aim is to "indicate whether it was suicide or another cause".

The investigator added that at this stage the friend is being treated as a witness.
