The cruise ship singer mystery continues, according to an article at ABC. The article says police have ruled out foul play, but say death of the cruise ship singer, who was found in her cabin, remains a mystery.
The body of the ship's popular lead singer, 24-year-old Jackie Kastrinelis, was discovered aboard the Regent Seven Seas Voyager after the ship docked in Australia Sunday morning.
"Everyone's just completely shocked," says college friend, Ben Wilcox, "She was energetic, bubbly and friendly on camera, but that was also the case off camera."
ABC says Kastrinelis' cabin "became a crime scene immediately after the discovery of her body." Investigators have ruled out foul play in the death of the University of Hartford graduate, and are reportedly focusing on a head injury the singer sustained during a rehearsal Saturday night. Sources say she was "apparently treated with medication by a ship doctor before going to bed."
A statement from the cruise ship company said:
"The Regent Seven Seas Cruises' family is deeply saddened by the unexpected passing of Jackie. Our hearts and prayers go out to her family and loved ones."
"She stood out a little bit brighter ... but you can say that about anybody," said Michael Morris, the director of music for the University of Hartford School of Theatre division, "But about Jackie it is absolutely true."
