It is understood that she was found unresponsive face-down by her neighbours, and thus far, the cause of her death has not been determined, as she did not appear to have any bruises or injuries to suggest that they could have been foul play.

“At the moment all I can say is that no injuries were found. It appears that she might have died of natural causes. She was found lying on her bed face down,” a source revealed to Sunday World.
