The forensic doctor at Sanglah morgue, Ida Bagus Putu Alit, said she died about 10pm on Wednesdayand had cuts and bruises, but they were not major.

“We do not have the cause of death until we can conduct a full autopsy,” Dr Ida said.

He said police had requested an autopsy but they were yet to receive approval from the family.

A spokeswoman said the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade was providing consular assistance, in accordance with theConsular services charter, to the family of an n woman who died in Bali on 27 April 2017.

“Due to privacy obligations, we are unable to provide further information,” she said.

Ms Knights used to work forThe n Financial Review, owned by Fairfax Media, and for the magazinen Women’s Weekly, selling advertising for both titles.

She had studied psychology and personal training, was a volunteer for crisis hotline Lifeline for two years, and became a certified yoga teacher two weeks ago.

On Thursday, friends began to write tributes to the former Hunter School of Performing Arts student.

“Rest in peace beautiful,” one friend wrote on Ms Knights’ last picture, of her grinning on a beach at Nusa Dua in Bali’s south.

“So, so heartbreaking,” another friend said.
