The father of tragic New York chute woman Lara Prychodko believes that his daughter could have been murdered.
Police are still probing the shocking incident where she plunged 27 floors to her death.
So far, the police have not charged anyone in connection with the incident.
"She was brutally murdered in a sadistic way. She would have never done this to herself," said Nicholas Prychodko.
His daughter's body was found in the building's trash compactor on Tuesday inside Zeckendorf Towers.
Police believe she either jumped or fell down the trash chute.
But Prychodko thinks that theory is 'inconceivable'.
"She had no reason to go into that area. She had just gotten off the elevator," he added.
Her father has traveled from his native Canada to visit the medical examiner's office.
"I can't get into the details of why circumstantially I'm convinced it wasn't possible, because it's part of an active investigation," he revealed.
NYPD spokesman Lt. John Grimpel revealed that "detectives are actively investigating her death."
However, he said there was "no evidence at this time that she was murdered."
But her father does not believe that her death was a suicide.
"In our family in Canada – nobody believes Lara could ever do anything like this to herself, either by accident or suicide," he said.
"My daughter never spoke of suicide. She was a great believer in self-help."
It has been revealed that Lara Prychodko and her husband construction boss husband David Christopher Schlachet were in the middle of a divorce at the time of her death.
The couple was in mediation that had been postponed for a month.
