Although Homicide Detectives were summoned to the scene, Chris Dawson from WA Police said that they are not treating this situation as suspicious. 

‘There are no suspicious circumstances – this medical procedure took place at an authorised medical facility,’ he said.

“It seems that this is an extremely tragic case.

“But I have no evidence to indicate that there are any criminal activities or other untoward circumstances.”

The family was contacted by detectives to create a report that would be submitted to the coroner.
