Toronto - A young woman from Beijing, China was found dead inside a Toronto basement apartment at 27 Aldwinckle Heights this weekend near York University.
Toronto Police responding to an unknown trouble call Friday at 11:01 a.m. found the woman unclothed from the waist down. According to police reports she had been dead for some time.
The woman had been online using a webcam at about 1 a.m. with a person overseas. According to the online witness there was a knock on the victim's door. The victim opened the door for an unknown man who asked to use her cellphone.
"Investigators cannot exclude the possibility that the deceased knew or was familiar with the man, however the man was unknown to the online witness," reported Constable Mark Pugash, Corporate Communications.
A struggle between the victim and the man took place. The man turned off the victim's laptop.
According to the witness the man is white, 20-30, 6', 175−200 lbs., muscular build, with medium−length brown hair, messy at the front and well−groomed at the back, wearing a blue crew−neck T−shirt.
The victim's laptop is missing. It is thought to be an IBM ThinkPad T400. The victim's cell phone has been recovered at the scene and is undergoing forensic examination.
Toronto Police have identified the victim as Qian Liu, 23, of Beijing, China. At this time the cause of death is still pending. There was no evidence of substantial trauma that could readily be the cause of her death. There were no signs of sexual assault.
Until the final pathologist's findings are reported, this case will remain a suspicious death investigation.
