This story has received a little coverage, but not enough in my opinion. In a nearby highrise apartment block, Balencea, a young woman died when she fell down a rubbish chute. The Highrise has a rubbish chute, and it is very hard to imagine how you could fall down it. Even if you wanted to commit suicide, it is just so not the way to do it.
A tabloid current affairs tv show even tried to show how difficult it was for an adult to fit down a rubbish chute. Certainly as far as ours goes, only a small child would fit and then would have to be lifted.
Very oddly to me, the police homicide squad found that it was most likely she committed suicide.
Our building has a log of tradesmen who visit the building. They must sign in and sign out. They hate doing it, but the committee of management is constantly on at the building manager to ensure they do. Balencea also had a log book and tradesmen were in the building on the day of the woman's death, and had signed in. Strangely the log book disappeared. It would be easy enough to grab ours and remove it. Our building also has lots of high quality cameras and every operation of remote control door locks are recorded against the number of the remote control. You would have to be clever to avoid all this to do a wrong.
Frankly I just don't believe she suicided and it is extraordinary to me that the police so quickly judged it was a suicide and again in my opinion, did not properly investigate. I smell a rat.
Sad business and I feel for her family and her boyfriend, who happens to be the son of a retired Supreme Court Judge and stepson of a County Court judge.
