Since Kate’s room was locked from the inside, the hotel’s management after hearing the bell had to call a technician.
By the time the door was broken, Kate’s body was found lying on the floor.
Tamati’s fiance came to know about the sudden turn of events after she was taken by the police to record a statement about her last moments with him.
The police have not yet released a statement regarding the cause of death of Kate Mitchelle.
