A strange, final--fatal--twist to the story of the transsexual hooker who got a headline-making car ride from Eddie Murphy.

Atison Seiuli died in an accidental fall from her Los Angeles apartment on April 22, it's now being reported.

The 21-year-old--listed by police as a female--was found lying face down on the sidewalk. She was clad only in a bra, pants and a towel.

Police say Seiuli, who had locked herself out of her apartment, tried to swing on the towel from the apartment's roof to a nearby open window. She missed.

News of Seiuli's death comes almost a year to the day--May 2, 1997--when she was busted for an outstanding warrant for prostitution while in the company of Murphy.

The embarrassing incident--for Murphy--involved the movie funnyman picking up Seiuli in a notorious West Hollywood hooker zone. (The same neighborhood where Hugh Grant got busted with Miss Divine Brown in 1996.)

Murphy said he was just being a "good Samaritan," offering Seiuli a ride in his Toyota Land Cruiser. Undercover cops, who pulled over Murphy's car, said they were just informing The Nutty Professor his passenger was a prostitute.

Seiuli was busted for the warrant violation; Murphy wasn't busted for anything. Police said he didn't do anything illegal. His attorney said the married father of three was just "trying to do someone a favor."
