Police have taken Gable Tostee into custody over the
death of a young Kiwi woman who plunged 14 storeys from his
Gold Coast apartment balcony.
It comes one week after Warriena "Rrie'' Wright, 26, was
killed in the fall from the Avalon apartments in Surfers
Paradise about 2.20am on Friday last week.
Police took Tostee into custody for questioning this
afternoon, but a Gold Coast police spokeswoman said no
charges had been laid.
"A 28-year-old man is currently assisting police with
inquiries in relation to the incident,'' she told APNZ.
Tostee arrived at the Southport Courthouse on the Gold Coast
in the back of an unmarked police car.
Handcuffed, wearing shorts and a white T-shirt, he was led
through a side entrance into the court building, shortly
before 12.30pm local time.
Ms Wright, who was on the Gold Coast for a close friend's
wedding, had been at the bodybuilder's apartment after
meeting him on the dating app Tinder.
Tostee left the apartment the morning of the death but later
contacted police. He was released without charge.
Police have scoured his apartment for forensic evidence and
seized hard drives, discs and a camera.
They have also been monitoring Tostee's posts on social
media, where he denied causing Ms Wright's death and bragged
about his past sexual conquests.
