A RELATIVE of a woman whose death is being investigated by police has asked people in Worcester to provide any information they have which may help the probe.

Dorin Grecu, the nephew of Tatiana Rzepka, posted on Facebook group Worcestershire Crime Updates to say: “If anyone happens to know anything about the case, can you please inform us. No fictional stuff please.”

In response to the family reaching out, Detective Inspector Justin Taylor said: “We cannot even begin to imagine what Tatiana’s family are going through, particularly as it is nearly a year since her death.

“Our investigation began last summer and has included a referral to a forensic pathologist and numerous enquiries, which led to our searches last week.

“We are working with the coroner and doing all we can to ensure that we can give Tatiana’s family the answers they need and deserve.”

Mrs Rzepka, who was 37, died last year when she apparently drowned in the bath at home in Saddlers Walk, Worcester.

Her death was initially believed to be a suicide, the Worcester News understands.

Last Thursday, police began searching the home Mrs Rzepka shared with her husband, Tomasz Rzepka, and young daughter in relation to her death.

A 42-year-old man, believed to be Mr Rzepka, was arrested in relation to the police probe and then later released under investigation.

Members of the Polish community told the Worcester News they still had questions over the death of Mrs Rzepka, who was originally from Moldova.

Tomasz Gruszeczka, who knew Mrs Rzepka and her husband, said: “We are devastated and shocked in the Polish community.

“Tatiana was well liked in the community, although I didn’t know her personally.

“She loved her daughter and was a carer at an old people’s home in St John’s.

“We believe Tomasz took their daughter to Poland a few weeks ago to stay with family.”

An inquest into the death of Mrs Rzepka was due to take place yesterday at Stourport Coroners Court.

However, it was pushed back to a later date. The Coroner’s Office was unable to say when the inquest will take place.
