A model has been found strangled dead inside her home with her unknown killer presumed to be at large.
Nayab Nadeem’s dead body was found inside her home in the Pakistani city of Lahore on 11th July.
Coroners found that the 29-year-old woman had been strangled to death. Although her body was found naked, the post-mortem concluded that she had not been raped.
Marks found on Nayab’s body and neck suggest she was tortured before being killed.
It was the model’s stepbrother, Nasir, who raised the alarm with the police after he went to visit her at her home, as he often did, and found her dead.
She failed to answer his phone calls or open the door to him, despite her car being in her driveway.
Nasir had last seen his stepsister in the early hours of 10th July when the pair went out to eat ice cream.
A closer inspection of the model’s house revealed the bathroom window had been broken, and it is presumed Nayab’s killer came and left through there.
The model’s phone was also found to be missing.
Nayab, who was single, lived alone in the property. She had only recently moved to Lahore from Dubai, according to reports.
Following the post-mortem, her body was handed back to her relatives for her funeral.
The identity of her killer and the motive for the crime remain unknown. However, after looking through her phone record, the police revealed they would investigate her “close friends”.
The police also hinted that the killer may have tried to pass off the crime as a rape followed by murder.
The investigation continues.
