The badly decomposed body of an American actress was discovered in a Sydney flat in 2006. Here’s how Ninemsn reports on the inquest:
Ms Germain’s dress was lifted above her shoulders and a clothes peg was attached to her genitals.Towels, cushions, a foot spa and a construction hat covered her body, obscuring all but her right arm.
An electrical cord was wrapped around her neck and a toaster had been strung from the shower rail.
A knife and a razor blade were discovered near her body and lipstick was smeared throughout the bathroom and on Ms Germain.
“There did not appear to be any knife-inflicted injuries at the time of post-mortem,” Sgt Beecroft said.
While the circumstances were clearly suspicious, two autopsies had been unable to determine a cause of death, she said. [Emphasis added]
