Victoria Police have released four men last night following the discovery of a body in a Melbourne serviced apartment.

The body of a woman in her late 20’s, early 30’s who was found dead in the shower of a unit on Market Street in the CBD. She was dressed in blue denim shorts, a long sleeve black top and white trainers.

Police released information of what she was wearing hoping to identify the deceased.

The men were part of a group from Sydney and the ACT who were in the city celebrating a Bucks weekend. They have been released pending further investigations.

It’s been reported that one of the men initially thought the tragic find had been part of “one big stitch-up… but it turns out it wasn’t” according to the Herald Sun.

The paper also reported that a hotel guest called ‘000’ after members of the group reportedly found the woman collapsed in the shower.

Emergency crews arrived just before 8 o’clock yesterday morning, but could do nothing to revive the woman.

News Corp also reported that Police spent the day at the Oaks Apartment, which was one of three in the building booked by the bucks group. Another witness told the paper she saw one of the men being led from the building in handcuffs by Police but was not resisting.

The group of men were believed to have attended the Geelong-Hawthorn game on Saturday evening, before attending Inflation Nightclub’s Cloud Nine until 3am Sunday morning.

Police were trying to establish whether the woman had been known to the men, and if she had consumed drugs and alcohol. They are now reviewing the hotel’s CCTV.
