Police searched the crime scene and discovered that Tatiana’s passport had disappeared and the mother was declared wanted.
Yulia died from blood loss following cuts to the carotid artery in her neck.
Yulia was discovered several hours later by her older brother Sertan, 22, when he returned home. He found Yulia lying lifeless on the bed in her room covered in blood with spatter all over the bed and walls.
