The inquest into the death of a Regina woman whose body was found at the bottom of a laundry chute at a downtown Regina hotel started Monday
Police photos and testimony got the inquest into the death of 29 year old Nadine Machiskinic going.
The family wanted to know how Nadine managed to fit through the chute door which was 53 centimeters wide.
Her aunt questioned how Nadine could maneouvre her way into that small space before falling 10 storeys to her death.
Constable Keith Malcolm of the Regina Police Service spent time on the stand where he told the inquest an error was made when they delayed sending toxicology samples for testing for several months.
Malcolm said he thought another officer in the forensics unit had sent the samples for testing and the other officer thought Malcolm had done it.
Malcolm added police have changed procedures to avoid any similar mistakes from happening.
A 9-1-1 tape was also heard with that tape coming from hotel staff who found Machiskinic’s body
The inquest is scheduled to last all week.
