TORONTO (AP) -- Canadian police said they still don't know what caused the death of a student from Beijing who was last seen alive on a webcam by her boyfriend in China, who witnessed her struggling with a man before the camera was abruptly shut off.Liu Jianhui, the father of 23-year-old York University student Liu Qian, said his daughter's boyfriend Meng Xianchao witnessed the attack on the webcam.Liu Jianhui said he was headed to Toronto on Wednesday.
Liu was chatting with her boyfriend, Meng Xianchao, by webcam at about 1 a.m. Friday when a man knocked on the door, police said.Meng reported seeing a struggle break out between the two before Liu's webcam was shut off. The friend contacted other friends in Toronto who in turn called police.
Police said the body of Liu was found Friday in her apartment in Toronto a few hours after he witnessed the attack. She was naked from the waist down and there were no obvious signs of sexual assault or trauma that would have led to her death, police said.An autopsy failed to show the cause of death and it could be weeks before the results of toxicology tests are known, Police Sgt. Frank Skubic said. He said the death has yet to be classified officially as a homicide, though police were investigating it as such.
