The father of the woman who fell 27 floors to her death down her luxury building’s trash chute doesn’t believe the police theory that it was a drunken accident, and is convinced that she was the victim of foul play.
“She was brutally murdered in a sadistic way. She would have never done this to herself,” said Nicholas Prychodko, whose daughter Lara, 48, was found dead Tuesday evening in the basement compactor.
Lara Prychodko was last seen alive on video surveillance stumbling drunkenly from an elevator on the 27th floor of the Zeckendorf Towers around 4:20 p.m., police said.
Thirty minutes later a maintenance man found her body “crushed from multiple angles” in the compactor, police said.
The only other clue about her fate was her purse, which was found abandoned back up on the building’s 27th floor, according to police.
Police the next day later said they believe she either jumped or fell down the trash chute, while intoxicated.

Mother, 48, whose body fell down garbage chute in her luxury New York apartment building and was found in trash compactor Lara Prychodko , 48, had been living at 1 Irving […]

 

 

Prychodko had been living in the building for just six months and was in the process of divorcing her husband, construction executive David Christopher Schlachet.  He filed for divorce in 2016.
But Nicholas Prychodko thinks that theory is “inconceivable. It’s incredulous. It’s preposterous,” he said.
“She had no reason to go into that area. She had just gotten off the elevator. 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, and police have asked us not to talk about the details of what they know.”

Nicholas Prychodko travelled to in New York from the family’s native Canada with his other daughter,  to visit the medical examiner’s office. I’m in contact with police and “they have asked us not to talk about the details of what they know,” he said.
“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.”
NYPD spokesman Lt. John Grimpel said Friday that “detectives are actively investigating her death,” adding that there is “no evidence at this time that she was murdered.”

Lara’s father who has not spoken to his daughter’s estranged husband since her death, dismisses the possibility 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 is a great believer in self-help.”
Prychodko said he last spoke to his daughter on the phone the day before she was found dead to finalize plans for the family vacation they planned to take to Canada.
An attorney for Prychodko, Eric Seiff, who was representing her during her contentious divorce battle with her construction boss husband, David Christopher Schlachet, also spoke to Prychodko the day before she died and said she sounded “upbeat.”
