Fatal attack may have been caught on webcam

An overseas witness may have seen the last few moments of the life of a young woman found dead on Friday as the two chatted online, Toronto police say.

An overseas witness may have seen the last few moments of the life of a young woman found dead on Friday as the two chatted online, Toronto police say.

Dramatic details of what appear to be the woman’s final moments were described yesterday by Det. Sgt. Frank Skubic.

The still-unidentified young woman’s body was found, naked from the waist down, at 11 a.m. on Friday by police and emergency workers at an apartment near York University. Police say there were no obvious signs of sexual assault.

Ten hours earlier, the woman had been having a video chat with someone overseas.

The overseas witness, whose name police have not released, heard a knock on the door and saw a man enter the woman’s basement apartment.

“There was a physical struggle between the deceased and this male, and the male then turned off the deceased’s laptop computer,” Skubic said.

Skubic said police have talked to the witness and are trying to find out whether the dead woman’s last conversation was recorded.

The man who entered the apartment was white, between 20 and 30, about six feet tall and 175 to 200 pounds with a muscular build, Skubic said. He had brown hair and was wearing a blue crewneck T-shirt.
