The woman who was found dead in a Melbourne hotel room after a buck’s party has been named as 20-year-old Natasha Rowley, The Australian reports.
Just four months before her death, Natasha had officially become a solider with the Australian Army.
The 20-year-old, from Perth, was found dead in the shower of the apartment where a group of men were staying on July 16. She was wearing shorts, a long-sleeved top and runners.
Three days after her death, police confirmed they had identified the woman, but her name has only just been released to the public. Police are yet to reveal the cause of her death, but it is not considered suspicious.
Four men – aged in their 20s and 30s – who had been visiting Melbourne from NSW and the ACT to attend the party were questioned by police and released without charge after her death.
It’s believed the group of men met Natasha at the King St nightclub Inflation before heading back to The Oaks on Market serviced apartments around 3am.
Paramedics were called to the building at 8am.
The Australian reports authorities are still waiting for the results of toxicology tests, and are treating the death as a potential case of misadventure.
Natasha’s two older sisters posted tributes to their sister on social media.
“I’ll never forget your sweet smile, my beautiful sister. I love you, Natasha,” 21-year-old Alannah Rowley wrote on Instagram.
“Gone but never forgotten,” her other sister, Bryanna, wrote on Facebook.
