Prosecutors in the case of Warriena Wright's death claim a phone recording taken at the scene may imply that her suspected killer strangled her before she went off the balcony to her death.
Gable Tostee, 30, is being tried for the murder of a woman he met on Tinder, who fell 14 stories to her death after allegedly trying to escape from him on August 8th, 2014, in Queensland, Australia.
The case has caught public attention because Tostee enabled an audio device in the hours before Wright's death, recording their time in his hotel room.
It is unclear why he did this in the first place, but the recording, some say, implicates him in her death.
On it, the two argue fiercely, with Tostee saying at one point: "You're lucky I haven't chucked you off my balcony, you god damn psycho bitch."
They took selfies and went out drinking on the night of her death.
A person in a neighboring apartment alleges to have heard Wright pleading with Tostee around 2:20 am, shortly before her fall: "No, no, no, no, no, please let me go home."
Audio from that moment has been made public by the prosecution.
In the recording below, you can hear what prosecutor's claim are the sounds of Wright being strangled by Tostee, before being locked out on the balcony.
She is said to have been trying to escape when she fell to her death.
I must warn you that the recording below is extremely troubling and definitely not for the faint of heart.
If this sort of thing bothers you, don't listen to it. I personally found it extremely hard to hear.
Things looked even worse for Tostee's defense when this one-sided conversation he had with his father was also found on the tape:
I was all right at first, we, you know, had sex in bed and after that she kept drinking. She kept beating me up… I forced her out onto the balcony and I think she might have jumped off. She was saying, 'I know Muay Thai, I'll beat you up for fun.' I tried to hold her down and she ran out onto my balcony and the last thing I remember was she kept hitting me for some reason and I just like tackled her down on the ground inside the apartment.
The court supplied this harrowing photo reconstruction of Wright's last moments as she allegedly tried to escape to the balcony below.
