The mysterious death of a 20 year old Australian Instagram model who’s body was discovered Friday aboard a super yacht owned by a Mexican billionaire, Alberto Baillères, on a Greek Island is being investigated by authorities.
Sinead McNamara, 20, was found unconscious around 2 a.m. Friday on the back of the Mayan Queen IV in the Greek port of Argostoli in Kefalonia, news.com.au reported. The doctor on the yacht and port authority officials attempted to revive her as a helicopter arrived at the scene to transport her to a hospital, FOX News reports.
She died while heading to the hospital, local reports stated. Her cause of death has not been revealed.
“The Coast Guard of Kefalonia has ordered an investigation into the circumstances that led to the death of the 20-year-old Australian national as well as an autopsy-necropsy,” local media In Kefalonia reported.
Earlier it emerged Ms McNamara posted a cryptic message to Instagram two weeks before her death.
“My head is all over the shop today,” Sinead McNamara wrote, along with emojis of a volcano, a tornado and a needle with blood dripping from it.
Sharing an image of herself on a quad bike, she added: “Take me back to this where my only worry was not cracking my skull open.”
The chilling post has emerged along with new details about Ms McNamara’s mysterious death on board a billionaire’s superyacht — and they raise more questions than answers.
According to local media, Mr Bailleres left the yacht, which was anchored off the island of Kefalonia, on Tuesday — leaving Ms McNamara alone with the crew. Her body was reportedly found on the back of the boat two days later.
Authorities have ordered the yacht to remain at the port as the investigation continues.
The model was working on yachts while she traveled through Europe. Her mother, Kylie, was heading to Greece when she was told her daughter died, The Australian reported. McNamara was supposed to travel to the Greek town of Pylos before her death.
“I have unfortunately received the worst news of my life, (Sinead) has passed away,” her brother Jake McNamara told the news outlet.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends.
Rest In Peace.
