Charlotte Dawson Found Dead

February 22, 2014

Sad news today: Charlotte Dawson has been found dead in her Sydney home.

Dawson, 47, was found dead at her Woolloomooloo home just after 11:15am on Saturday morning.

“About 11am police from the Kings Cross local area command were called to Cowper Wharf Road after the body of a woman had been located in a unit. No suspicious circumstances at this stage and a report is being prepared for the coroner,” said a police spokesman in a statement.

The New Zealand-born TV personality was last seen on TV on Nine’s Morning Show on Friday.

Dawson struggled with mental illness, suffering a suicide attempt in 2012 after being the target of online death threats on Twitter.

Friend and fellow Australia’s Next Top Model judge Alex Perry told news.com.au: “I loved Charlotte so much but she was a very tormented woman and really was finding it hard to battle her mental illness.”

Dawson was married to Olympic swimmer Scott Miller in 1999, splitting up two years later.
