Police are on the hunt for a mobile phone that was allegedly thrown out of the window of a 23-storey apartment block the night before a woman was found dead inside.
Tatiana Dokhotaru’s body was found by police inside a unit in a Norfolk St apartment complex in Liverpool at 8pm on May 27.
Almost three months later, no one has been charged in relation to the 34-year-old’s death.
In a desperate effort to find answers, Strike Force Median investigators have released CCTV footage of the night before Ms Dokhotaru’s body was found.
The camera is focused on the upper level balconies of the Liverpool apartment where a shift in light appears to show people moving behind the window coverings.
A flash of light appears momentarily out of the window before disappearing.
Police allege the footage shows a phone being thrown out of a window that matches the location of Ms Dokhotaru’s unit shortly before midnight the night before her death.
The phone has never been recovered.
Investigators have released the footage in the hopes that someone may have located a phone in the vicinity of Norfolk and Bathurst Streets around the time of the death and could hold vital clues that could help police understand what happened in Ms Dokhotaru’s final hours.
Last week, strike force detectives flew to Canada to meet with Tatiana’s family to gather further information about her life and associates in Australia.
Detectives are also continuing to canvass the Liverpool area for CCTV and witnesses who may be able to assist with identifying her last movements.
A critical incident investigation into all other circumstances surrounding Ms Dokhotaru’s death continues to run separately from the criminal investigation and will be the subject to an independent review.
Anyone who could assist Strike Force Median investigators is urged to contact Liverpool Police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
