Newly published selfies, from a Tinder date that turned fatal, exhibit the nearly naked couple identified as Australian Gable Tostee and Warriena Wright, smiling and using peace signs on their first and only night together before the young woman fell to her death off of a balcony in Australia.

The  30-year-old Gable Tostee is on trial for the killing of  Warriena Wright, a New Zealand tourist who plunged 14 stories off of Tostee’s balcony at his opulent apartment back in 2014.

Tostee allegedly locked his victim — whom he met only hours prior on Tinder — on his balcony after the getting into a heated dispute.

The 26-year-old fell to her death when she attempted to climb down to safety to the balcony directly below, the Daily Mail reported.

Tostee and Wright had met on dating app Tinder and the night she died was the only time they met in person

The most chilling picture, which was a part of a string of photographs presented in Queensland state Supreme Court in Brisbane, reveals Wright’s lower half dangling over the side of Tostee’s balcony, apparently just seconds before she dropped.

Other photos were captured of their alcohol-fueled night, with Tostee’s apartment in total disorder.

In one of the pictures, white rocks are dispersed across the living room floor. Wright had flung the rocks at Tostee during their argument, which allegedly drove him to a frenzy.

In court on Tuesday, prosecutors presented audio tapes obtained from Tostee’s phone of the couple’s deadly night.

The court heard detailed audio on Monday of the pair arguing, as well as a photo reenactment of Ms Wright’s last moments dangling from Tostee’s balcony (pictured)

The two are heard shouting at each other. “You are lucky I haven’t chucked you off my balcony, you goddamn psycho little b—h,” the man is heard saying on one of the recordings.

After Gable Tostee purportedly locked her on the balcony, Wright is overheard repeatedly screaming “No!” before she finally dropped.

The man then is heard saying, “Sh–t.”

Prosecutor Glenn Cash announced to the court on Monday that although Tostee did not throw Wright off the balcony, he threatened her to the point that she felt she needed to escape by climbing down.
