Police Probe Gambling Debt Of Alleged Suicide Model

Police Probe Gambling Debt Of Alleged Suicide Model

A model who police said had killed her sleeping son before knifing herself to death could have been murdered, say prosecutors.

The bodies of blonde Eliza Kolodziej, 27, and her six-year-old son Alexander were found at the apartment in Otwock, a suburb of the Polish capital Warsaw.

Police said the initial indications were that the model had suffocated her son to death before going into the kitchen, taking out a knife and stabbing herself through the heart.

But new information shows that Eliza, who had started seeing a psychiatrist, and her 33-year-old husband Sebastian were heavily into gambling. And they say that the debt, that was reportedly the reason for her depression, might also have been a reason for someone to kill her.

Friends told Polish media the couple had fallen heavily into debt, and police say the debt means they do not rule out the possibility that Eliza was herself the victim of an attacker.

Prosecutor spokesman Jacek Galazka: "Initially, we assumed it was suicide, but now we cannot rule out the involvement of a third party after investigating the cause of her depression."

Eliza was a former model who graduated from Poland's elite Kozminski University, a private non-profit business school in Warsaw considered to be Poland’s highest rated private university.
