A mother threw the body of her 12-year-old daughter from a balcony after allegedly murdering her, it is reported. The horrific moment was caught on camera, which Mirror Online is not showing, as gasps of horror are heard from neighbours in Energodar, Ukraine. The tragedy took place in broad daylight and the footage was posted online. The video shows the 45-year-old mother, named as Svetlana Sheleveyster, standing on the balcony of her ninth-floor flat holding the body of her 12-year-old.
She can be seen struggling under the weight of the unnamed girl before she appears to throw her over the side on purpose.
Reportedly she tried to flee the flat, but police – alerted by neighbours – caught her and arrested her. It is claimed she smothered her daughter before throwing her down to the ground. It is rumoured the mum, a teacher, had suffered with mental health issues recently but had not sought help.
Arina Onoprienko said: “I know the mother as a good and kind person.
“The girl was always taken care of, she behaved well. She studied well in school and was a good girl.
“They had friendly relations, I just could not believe it.”
The 45-year-old suspect has an older daughter and husband, but they were not home at the time. She remains in police custody charged with murder. The investigation continues.
