It is reported that prior to this devastating incident, the young woman had expressed frustration, claiming that despite submitting 500 job applications, she had not received any responses.

The police narrative reveals that Vera’s mother went to wake her daughter in the morning, only to find her room empty. A subsequent search led to the heart-wrenching discovery of Vera’s lifeless body in the bathroom.
