A coroner’s investigation into the death of New Zealand woman Warriena Wright is set to take place, according to reports in the Courier Mail.
Just two months after Gable Tostee was acquitted of Warriena’s murder, Queensland State Coroner Terry Ryan confirmed that he is reviewing the case and will determine if an inquest is necessary.
The original coroner's investigation into Warriena’s death was suspended when Gable was charged with the 26-year-old's murder – the Gold coast playboy was found not guilty of murder or manslaughter by a jury in October after a two-week long trial.
Mr Ryan can call for an inquest if he believes a hearing could stop a similar incident from occurring again or if he doubts the cause of death.
'A coroner cannot hold an inquest until the finalisation of criminal proceedings. If, from information obtained while investigating a death, a coroner reasonably suspects a person has committed an offence, the coroner must give the information to the Director of Public Prosecutions,' a State Coroner's Office spokesman said.
Warriena tragically fell to her death from Gable’s 14th floor Gold Coast apartment in August 2014 after the pair had met up on Tinder earlier that night.
