The prime suspect in the murder of a young mother died of a suspected overdose.
Troy Boothey was suspected of killing his girlfriend Maddison Murphy-West, 20, on October 23, 2013 in Pakenham, on the southeastern outskirts of Melbourne.
Boothey's body was found on Saturday at his home in Hastings in the south of the city. His death is being investigated, but the police do not believe it is suspicious and understand that he has given an overdose of drugs.
Boothey was a violent ice-addict and Mrs. Murphy-West's family says he is relieved that he is dead.
Her aunt Kelly Anne Murphy said that Boothey & # 39; s death & # 39; a shock & # 39; used to be.
& # 39; We have mixed feelings. We are glad he is gone … we are no longer looking over our shoulders, but we had hoped that he would eventually be able to handle the charge, & she said to the Herald Sun.
Mrs. Murphy said she hoped people would come up with information about her niece's death.
& # 39; People may no longer feel scared, & # 39; she said.
At the time of Mrs. Murphy-West's death, Boothey told the police that his girlfriend was hanging on a door in her unit.
But murder investigators thought her death was disguised as self-harm and manipulated the scene to make it look like a suicide.

The young mother had been treated in hospital for an attack 13 months before her death, and her family believed she was often afraid of her life.
Mrs. Murphy-West's mother, Paula, believes that Boothey is the man responsible for killing her daughter and leaving her to raise the son of the Noah 6 couple.
Boothey went to jail a month after Mrs. Murphy-West's death for an anger attack while on an ice bending machine.
