Greek authorities investigate death of Australian Instagram model

Sinead McNamara

The circumstances of her death remain unclear, and Greek authorities have reportedly launched an investigation while the coast guard has ordered the yacht to remain docked at the port of Argostoli. 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.

The yacht on which she died belonged to one Mexican billionaire entrepreneur who owns the second largest mining company in Mexico Alberto Bailleres.

The yacht was released after investigators reviewed CCTV footage from the luxury 93-metre boat, Greek media reported.

An autopsy has been ordered to determine the cause of Ms McNamara's death. Her occupation while there has not been disclosed, but she had been travelling on the boat for the duration.

Naturally, Dorsey said Twitter doesn't "feel great about this", and that the company can't use its scale as an excuse. This interference was completely unacceptable".


Ms McNamara was found unconscious and "twisted in rope" at the rear of the vessel on Thursday 30 August.

The jet-setting blond bombshell chronicled her travels for her 14,800 followers, and hundreds of people left their condolences on her last post, an image of iridescent blue waters in Greece.

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

Ms McNamara's family members say the popular Instagram influencer had been working on the Mayan Queen IV for about four months.

Her death has prompted an outpouring of grief, with family, friends and fans commenting under her final post - a picture of a secluded, wild stretch of northeast Kefalonia coastline.

Just five days ago on Facebook, Ms McNamara posted a selection of photos with her big sister Lauren, writing "happy birthday to the most awesome big sister I could ever ask for, 5 days till I get to see you!"

She was just hours from being reunited with her mother and sister, who were in the air on their way to Athens when they received the tragic news.

"Thanks Sinead for photos of things I have not seen", her grandmother wrote.
