No cause of death for Aust model for weeks

The exact cause of the death of Australian model Sinead Mcnamara, who was found dead last week on a luxury yacht in Greece, will not be announced until the results of laboratory tests are known.

Greek coroner Ilias Bogiokas, who conducted the autopsy on Ms McNamara’s body, told the Athens Macedonian News Agency that the Instagram model died from hanging and that the body did not have any injuries.

Ms McNamara, 20, was found hanging from rope at the rear of the superyacht Mayan Queen IV early last Friday local time while the vessel was moored in the port of Argostoli in Kefalonia. However, the final cause of death will not be announced until the lab tests are completed, which could take a month or more.

According to the Greek news agency, initial evidence gathered by the coast guard, who took statements from about 23 crew members and examined CCTV video footage from the yacht, seem to indicate Ms McNamara took her own life, but the investigation has not been completed.

Ms McNamara, from Port Macquarie, had been working for four months as a stewardess on the six-storey vessel owned by Mexican mining mogul and billionaire Alberto Bailleres.

She was on her last shift and was to have met up with her mother and sister who had been on their way to Greece at the time. They are expected to accompany her body back to Australia in the coming days.

The yacht was allowed to leave the port on Sunday night local time, according to media reports.
