The woman, who according to Morrow had been seen carrying alcohol into the complex, was thought to have been partying with friends in an apartment on one of the floors above.  

"My partner actually witnessed her earlier with drinks and all her friends, in quite a partying mood and everything."

He says the 30-storey high apartment building was known to be a place for people to gather and party before going in to town over the weekends. 

Police said the early morning incident is not suspicious.
