BALI POLICE have questioned two of the three friends who found Australian woman Dennielle North in her Kerobokan villa just before she was pronounced dead on Sunday morning.
The friends, Australian national Felicity Bloom and French national Agathe Ammeux, told police she was breathing when they found her splayed on her back by the pool.
At a press conference on Thursday, the North Kuta Police chief, Aldi Alfa, described Ammeux as Ms North's ''pacar'', an Indonesian word used to describe a boyfriend or girlfriend.
The friends said they took her to the Bali International Medical Centre (BIMC) Hospital, where she was later pronounced dead.
"The two friends we spoke to, Agathe and Felicity, confirm she was still breathing in the ambulance on the way to BIMC but the doctor pronounced her dead on arrival. We will question that doctor later this afternoon," Mr Alfa said.
At the press conference the police chief described Agathe Ammaneux as Ms North's 'pacar,' an Indonesian word used to describe a boyfriend, or girlfriend.
Bali Police have spoken to six witnesses, including villa security guards and the two friends. They are still looking for a third friend, known only as Kelly, who was also at the villa that night.
Ms North reportedly returned home with her friends at 3am on Sunday after work at the upmarket Bali club Cocoon. She was found barely conscious at 9am.
It is unclear what caused Ms North's death, but the family has asked that her body be returned to Australia for an autopsy.
Anthony Bevilacqua, the manager of the Cocoon, said the North family was not treating the death as suspicious. "They are all devastated, just like anybody with a tragic death in the family. It was an accident, full stop.''
Ms North's brother, sister and cousin met Mr Alfa on Thursday but declined to comment.
Mr Alfa said the investigation had not revealed any indication of foul play. "Since we found no suspicious circumstances surrounding the death, after speaking to the witnesses, the physical examination of the body, we will release the body as per the family request," he said.
