    It seems like your document isn't public, or the link got mangled when you pasted it in.

    From your image it looks like the import came in as a bunch of separate surfaces. You may be able to Boolean/Add them together. If you turn on Highlight Boundary Edges, it can help you find where a model isn't water-tight.

    The original mesh source (obj) looks to need a fair bit of manipulation before it is going to be usable... I opened it in MeshLab and can see lots of areas where the import will have a hard time. MeshLab (and other things like it) have many more tools you can use to do such editing.

    One obvious area is in the hair (see below) where there are many intersections...

    Meshmixer is also good for this kind of thing, there are plenty of tutorials on the web.
