The woman found dead in a shower in a Melbourne serviced apartment over the weekend has been formally identified by police. According to a Victoria Police spokesperson, the woman was identified as a 20-year-old from Western Australia.
The ‘Australian‘ is additionally reporting that the woman was a member of the Australian Defence Force, citing sources naming her as a member of the Australian Army, a claim confirmed by an ADF spokesperson in a statement this evening:
“Defence extends its deepest sympathies to the family and friends of the deceased.”
The name of the woman is yet to be released.
Earlier this week it was reported that police were no longer treating the woman’s death as suspicious and that the four men who had rented the apartment had been released without charge.
