– A worker at the apartment building where Phoebe Handsjuk fell 12 storeys to her death found that a log of who entered the complex on the day the young woman died went missing, a court has heard.
The worker was also asked questions by a friend of Ms Handsjuk’s boyfriend in the weeks after the 24-year-old died when she fell down a rubbish chute at a St Kilda Road apartment complex on December 2nd, 2010, the Coroner’s Court of Victoria was told on Wednesday.
But a man seen taking a lift to the 12th floor of the Balencea apartment building, and who may be able to shed light on the mysterious death, was yet to be identified, the court heard.
Coroner Peter White is investigating Ms Handsjuk’s death after her family campaigned for a coronial inquiry.
The Homicide Squad investigated her death but determined Ms Handsjuk most likely committed suicide.
Mr White has set aside three weeks from August 5th to try to determine how and when Ms Handsjuk died, and whether another party was involved.
In a directions hearing on Wednesday, Sergeant Sharon Wade told the court a worker at the building found log entries on the day in question had been removed despite there being tradesmen working at the complex that day.
The court heard the same worker had told Ms Handsjuk’s grandfather, retired police detective Lorne Campbell, that a friend of the dead woman’s boyfriend had also asked her questions after December 2nd.
The boyfriend, Antony Hampel – son of former Supreme Court judge George Hampel and stepson of County Court judge Felicity Hampel – will be one of about 25 witnesses called to give evidence at the inquest – Adam Cooper


About Jumpin' Jack Cash

Deep connections are the most important aspect of my existence. I don’t care if people don’t know what they want. I love books. I’m cynical of love stories, although I’m romantic. I adore gardens. I like women who challenge me. I love the rain as an excuse to stay inside and dream. I'm furiously impatient. If I ask you a question best to tell me the truth as I'm likely to already know the answer. I'm a carnivore. I continuously underestimate the magic of fresh flowers in my home. I love warm rain in the summer. My mood elevates to epic proportions when the sun shines. Tell me not to do something and I'll do it twice and take photos. Running is my antidepressant. I loathe lies. I rarely forgive a lie. Loyalty and honesty are my most noble virtues, and I value them more than anything in other people. I love to love, and am able to fall in love very quickly, although it's only ever happened once. I understood myself and fixed myself only after destroying myself. My greatest excitement comes from deliberately getting lost in foreign cities. I can be extremely loud and frighteningly silent. I hate insinuations. I love storms. Justice for all. I'm a proud man, but welcome the influence of the feminine soul. I have two sisters. I’m a dreamer. I’m a deep thinker. Don’t deal with guilt trips or drama that well. I'm extremely stubborn and persistent. I'm brilliant at keeping secrets. I love driving. I become absolutely and completely lost while watching a burning fire. When the toast pops from the toaster I’m never ready and shit myself. I play the guitar, but require much improvement. Solitude and warmth of the sun are perfect together. I’ve been married once and now divorced. I’m a music junkie. Chocolate mousse is the shit. I curse too much. I find it difficult to make friends. I spent four years as a firefighter. I’ve run my own company since 1991. Bright lights, big cities. I’ve been an executive producer of a feature film. Some people don’t care, and that’s the biggest let-down of the human race. There are cures and solutions for many evils, but no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings. The sound of the Italian language being spoken is as good as my favourite music. I hate corrupt cops. I relentlessly and passionately pursue anybody and anything that sets my soul on fire. I'm a dog lover, and all my dogs are considered family members. I have an obsession with photography. I have some close friends who are household names, but shall always remain anonymous. I’m crazy but not lazy. Losing a soulmate has hurt me badly. My two young sons are the nucleus of my universe. I love airports. I love freedom. If you are dishonest or disloyal, I can erase you from my life and memory immediately and permanently. I yearn to explore, dream about and discover as many friendships, deep connections and places, one possibly can in a lifetime.
