Lithgow death still a mystery

POLICE continue to be tight lipped about the circumstances regarding the death of a young woman at a home in Macaulay Street, Lithgow, a week ago.

The body of the 27-year-old woman was found in a water-filled bath last Thursday afternoon after a member of her family went to the home concerned that her young children had not been collected from school.

Paramedics were unable to revive the woman.

Police at the time listed the death as suspicious until proven otherwise and set up a crime scene at the home, which continued well into the next day with detectives, uniformed police and forensics officers in attendance.

A post mortem examination was later conducted in Sydney in a bid to determine the cause of death but the outcome has not been revealed.

Police have also not released the name of the woman.
