THE NEPHEW of a woman found dead in the bathtub of her Worcester home says he fears he will never see her daughter again.

Tatiana Rzepka was just 37 years old when she was found dead in her home in Saddler’s Walk in 2019.

On August 9, 2020 police put a cordon around the home and forensic teams searched the home Mrs Rzepka had shared with her husband and young daughter.

A 42-year-old man was arrested but later released. The Worcester News understands that the arrested man was Mrs Rzepka’s husband, Tomasz Rzepka.

An inquest into the death of Mrs Rzepka is now scheduled to take place this June.

Dorin Grecu, Mrs Rzepka’s nephew, says her family fear they will never see her daughter again after Mr Rzepka took the girl to Poland.

Mr Grecu told the Worcester News: “A few months ago Tomasz tried to sell the house and went to Poland with the child.

"We believe Tatiana’s daughter is with his family over there, at least that is what we’ve been told.

“We would love to visit her, but I don’t know if we can. We don’t know where she is.

"She is so young, it is hard for her. Hopefully when she grows up she’ll want to know us and what happened to her mother. We all just want answers.”

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 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.”

An inquest into the death of Ms Rzepka was due to take place on August 10 last year at Stourport Coroners Court, but did not go ahead.

The inquest is currently scheduled to be heard on June 17, 2021.
