How did Nadine Machiskinic get into a laundry chute. That was the topic of discussion at the coroners inquest into her death on Tuesday.
A doctor told the inquest the injuries sustained by the 29 year old who was found dead after falling 10 storeys down that laundry chute at the Delta Regina hotel suggests she went down feet first, but Dr. Shawn Ladham said she could have done backwards and possibly head first.
Noah Evanchuk is the lawyer for the Machiskinic family and says that implies someone could have put Machiskinic into the chute.
A report into Machiskinic’s death said the woman died of blunt force trauma consistent with a fall and tests showed she had drugs in her system.
Her death was ruled accidental with no evidence of foul play or suicide.
The family is questioning how Machiskinic managed to fit through the chute door which was 53 centimeters wide and was in a place where the door would have to be held open for something to get put into it.
The inquest is scheduled to continue on Wednesday and last all week.
