Coroner will investigate pregnant woman's death

A CORONIAL investigation will be held into the death of a woman at a Brassall house.   

Stacey Oerton was found dead in her home on Diamantina Blvd on January 28 and her family have since revealed via a GoFundMe page that the 28-year-old was 22 weeks pregnant.   

A large police presence around the home, up to five cars, sparked concern among surrounding neighbours, but the police have confirmed her death was not suspicious.   

Police have also said it was a "sudden death'' and that the cause was unclear.   

The GoFundMe page which was set up last week to raise money for a funeral, describes the death as a "terrible freak accident'' which also claimed the life of her unborn son.   

"… her tiny boy Matthias Glen ... was delivered during the autopsy on January 31," the GoFundMe page reads.   

"He will be placed in Stacey's arms before the funeral so that they may be together forever. Stacey leaves behind her 10-year-old son who was her life."  

The funeral will be held on Thursday, you can donate here
