Nataliya Vabishchevich, 35, was found dead in the entry way of her condominium in the 12700 block of NE 10th Place on Monday, and Bellevue Police say the death is a result of foul play.

A co-worker who was concerned the victim did not show up for work or call in, arrived at her residence and found her dead in the entry way with the door left open, according to Bellevue Police public information officer Carla Iafrate.

The call to 9-1-1 came in just before noon on Monday, but Iafrate said it was still uncertain when the incident took place.

Vabishchevich, a massage therapist at Pure Chiropractic Center in Bellevue, was well loved by family and friends, who spoke warmly of her after hearing of her death. Vabishchevich was a native of Belarus and lived with her young son.

The incident appears to be an isolated one, Iafrate said, with no immediate threat to the neighbors or the community. The road, which is located just off Northeast Eighth Street, is also home to a business park and Russian language school.

Police have not released any further information about cause of death, but are asking anyone who witnessed or has any information regarding this incident to please phone the Tip Line at: 425-452-2564 or pdtipline@bellevuewa.gov.
