“She was found with no injuries, her clothes and possessions including mobile phone and identity documents were intact. We do not suspect foul play. We can comment on the cause of death only after the postmortem,” police inspector Chandrakant Gawas said.

Police said Louise was a frequent visitor to Goa and was travelling with friends who have been informed of her demise.

“Her friends and family have been informed of the incident. The consulate and embassy too have been kept in the loop,” South Goa superintendent of police (SP) Abhishek Dhania said.

“The body will be handed over to the relatives after the completion of formalities,” he added.
