Investigation Into Death Of Australian Model On Superyacht In Greece

Sinead McNamara

Greek authorities have launched an investigation into her final hours on the boat, which was docked on the Greek island of Kefalonia.

The Sydney Morning Herald reports the Mayan Queen IV has departed the port of Argostoli in Kefalonia, five days after McNamara was rushed to hospital in a critical condition.

It was during the time of airlifting her to the hospital in Athens that she died.

Mr Bailleres and his family had left the Mayan Queen IV boat days before the incident, Greek news outlets reported.

McNamara friends and followers have flooded the model's social media pages with their condolences, saying they were shocked by her sudden death.

The yacht was released after investigators reviewed CCTV footage from the luxury 93-metre boat, Greek media reported. An autopsy is now being carried out to determine the cause of death.

In her last Instagram post four days ago, Ms McNamara wrote about jetskiing in Komitata, Greece.

Josh Donaldson's relatively short, significant - and ultimately stormy - journey with the Toronto Blue Jays is apparently over. The three-time All-Star last suited up for Toronto on May 28, missing the last three months with a strained left calf muscle.

Crew members have been interviewed by authorities, who also accessed CCTV footage taken onboard the vessel before it was allowed to depart.

She was travelling in the seaside town of Pylos on the southwest coast of Greece.

"Take me back to this where my only worry was not cracking my skull open" - a post which has added to speculation that the young model may have taken her own life. "Excitement is an understatement", McNamara posted on Facebook Aug. 26.

"DFAT is providing consular assistance to the family of an Australian who died in Greece", a spokeswoman said.

Two weeks before the death of McNamara left in a cryptic Instagram message.

Three days before she passed, Sinead gave a shout out to her sister on her Facebook page saying, "happy birthday to the most awesome big sister I could ever ask for, 5 days till I get to see you! Boy oh boy this world is attractive", Sinead wrote on her Facebook page on August 17th.

The tragedy came as Ms McNamara's mother Kylie and sister Lauren were en route to join her in Greece for a holiday.
