Monica Swinn (1948 - )
Female Vampire (Les avaleuses; La comptesse noire; Erotikill; The Loves of Irina; several more alternate titles) (1973) [Princess de Rochefort]: Dies differently in the different versions of this movie. In Erotikill, she is bitten on the throat and drained of blood by Lina Romay. In Female Vampire, she is bitten/kissed on the vagina and drained of life itself by Lina. In The Loves of Irina, her death scene is cut entirely.  Both Erotikill and Female Vampire show Monica's body later on (with differing amounts of nudity) as a blind doctor examines it by touch. (Nudity alert: Full frontal in Female Vampire; Topless in Erotikill)

Exorcism (El Sadico de Notre Dame; Demoniac; The Ripper of Notre Dame) (1974) [Maria]: Stabbed in the back by Jesus Franco after he forces her to kneel face down on the bed. (Monica's death scene is only present in Exorcism, having been cut from the version released as Demoniac and The Ripper of Notre Dame.) (Nudity alert: Full frontal & rear)

Helltrain (Train special pour SS; Hitler's Last Train; Love Train for SS; Special Train for Hitler) (1977) [Ingrid Schuler]: Shot to death (off-screen) by Rudy Lenoir while she's performing in a USO show after defecting; the movie ends with him aiming his pistol at her from the audience, but the implication of her fate is clear.

Shining Sex (La Fille au sexe brillant) (1977; adult) [Madame Pecame]: Poisoned by the toxic aphrodisiac applied to Lina Romay's body, while Monica is making love with Lina. (Nudity alert: X-rated; possibly a body double for the explicit close-up shots) (Thanks to Slingshot)

Women Without Innocence (Frauen ohne Unschuld) (1978) [Sandra Mauro]: Killed (off-screen), along with her husband, by an intruder in their living room; their bodies are shown afterwards when Lina Romay discovers them. (I haven't seen this movie myself, but read the plot synopsis in the book Obsession: The Films of Jess Franco.)
