The bodies of two Australian women, Noelene Bischoff (54) and her daughter Yvana (14), arrived in Brisbane on Saturday, January 11, 2014, where an autopsy will be carried out to determine why the two suddenly died in Bali on the early hours of January 5th.
Family members refused an autopsy in Indonesia, insisting that a detailed forensic examination must be done in Queensland.
Bali police remain unable to determine why the mother and daughter fell suddenly ill and subsequently died after checking into a seaside hotel in Padang Bai, East Bali. Rushed to medical facilities, the elder Birchoff died in Padang Bai while her daughter succumbed several hours later in a hospital in South Bali.
Police has collected vomitus and a wide range of prescription drugs owned by the women in an effort to find a possible cause of death. Speculation in the press has run from food poisoning to a violent allergic reaction.
New.com.au interviewed the Balinese driver who spent seven hours escorting the women around the Island just prior to their deaths who said both women were happy and not ill during their tour that included elephant rides, an excursion on a local lake and a traditional dance show.
The driver said the women lunched at a local warung near Ubud where they dined on seafood and tuna fish.
The driver took leave of the two women at the their Padang Bai hotel at 3:50 pm.
The mother and daughter were in Bali on a two-week holiday that began on December 31, 2013.
