Woman who died after being put in wheelchair was ‘very strong’

A woman who died in a Perth hospital after being placed in a wheelchair has been described as “very strong” by her partner.

An autopsy on the 31-year-old’s body revealed she suffered from cerebral palsy, and was in a medically induced coma.

A post mortem on Monday found she had suffered a brain injury, and her death has been ruled a suicide.

The woman’s partner, who was not named, told police she had no prior contact with the couple, but had been worried about the couple’s mental health.

“She had been very concerned about the relationship and was worried about it,” she said.

“(It was) her fear that they would break up, that she would lose the relationship with her partner.”

Her partner told police the couple had recently been separated and had discussed their separation.

He said they had been “quite worried” about her, and had contacted her doctor in Perth, who had been caring for her.

Police were called to a house in Waverley at around 3:30pm on Tuesday to investigate.

She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Witnesses described the woman as a strong woman, and said she was well-liked by her community.

Detective Inspector Tom Bannister said police were not treating the death as suspicious.
